Today, at Pretty Shiny Sparkly bloggers are bringing their bold stripes and color blocking looks.  I went for the bold stripes!!

Garments with Chevron Stripes are magic since they are made of one of those amazing prints which do something that blesses me no end…they are slimming!! The zig zag of the print just focuses the eye to the tiny points of a woman’s body, so typically the style will take pounds away.


However, horizontal stripes can be the opposite …if not worn carefully, they will put the pounds on! Since I am in weight-loss-mode, I am just now returning to some horizontal stripes….as long as the garment fits well and follows my curves…which I have many!!

Stripes have always said one word to me: FUN!! I guess because I can remember back in the dark ages, when I was a child, wearing them while playing in the neighborhood….I know, I know that is before many of the girls reading this blog on  were born. But, we can always have fun, ladies, and stripes are one way to say IT!!

Now, here’s some fun: Stripes, polka dots
and flowers…all on one cake!!
