Earn your Stripes

Once upon a time, long long ago, we were told to banish stripes to the back of our closets; especially us curvy girls.  We were told that horizontal stripes would only make us look wider.  Well ladies, dig deep and bring those stripes out!   As long as you are wearing clothes that are figure flattering, go all out with the stripes!  They are smart and chic (just like you)!  So ladies, since stripes are no longer just for inmates, referees and zebras, I think it’s time to go shopping!

As always, a few of my favs:


....Striped Butterfly Knit     .......Sailor Shrug (blk/crm)     ..........Striped Blazer (grey/nvy)

Forever 21+

Happy Shopping!

    Victoria, I am so excited to come to the grand opening. Tanya sent me the invitation, and I am in marketing and I love to support women who start up their own businesses. FYI, however you probably did your homework and found this out, that women are far more successful at small business start ups then men. Likely because of our ability to mulitask. I wish you all the best. Can’t wait to see the store and shop! Would you post the sizes you will be carrying please? Tee
