If wishes were horses, I’d Wear …Stripes on Stripes
May 6, 2016
I decided to do a series called If wishes were horses…I’d wear. I will be putting together outfits that I love and dream of or wish to wear but can’t due to hundreds of reasons. Will be my creative outlet and hope this helps others create similar or the same look. It’s impractical to buy and wear everything out there that I come across and love. So until I am a lottery, this series will be here to stay :)
I have been seeing a lot of black and white stripe this season. As a lover of prints I couldn’t resist creating this stripe on stripe outfit inspiration look. I think the colors from the off shoulder stripe top compliment the colors in the skirt that the look put together doesn’t connect noise and discord. I recently discovered Rebecca De Ravenel earrings and these red ones have been sitting on my wishlist for a while. I think the red brings a nice pop of color and compliments the yellow colors in top too. I got the navy blue ones on consignment here and they are soooo light.
Add on some matte red lipstick, Beso by Stilla is my favorite. I added the YSL College bag to the look; I love how it’s structured and has a top handle; perfect for a classic or ladylike look. Look is completed by these Ivanka Trump strappy heels. They look so much like these Gianvito heels. I also like these Topshop strappy heels. I actually ordered but had to return them because they are half a size too small. Currently they are out of my size. But I did love the shoes and the quality. They also have them in coral red here.
