For some reason I am really drawn to striped things lately.  Maybe I enjoy the uniformity? The predictability?  The whimsy?  The sense of order?  The opposite of a clashing pattern explosion?  I don't know, and why bother analyzing it.

If I owned my own home, I am pretty sure I would have at least one room with painted stripes.  Alas I rent, so that option is out.  But that hasn't completely deterred me from the striped thing.  I have recently purchased two striped dresses, two striped shirts, and one pair of striped shoes.  Clearly this is getting out of hand.  :)

I think I got the last of this one, as I cannot find it in stock anywhere.  It is my favorite!

So, I'm obsessed with stripes, too, and I hate it because it's soooo everywhere but I can't help but just automatically be drawn to it. I bought two striped tees last week. Sigh.

I'm in possession of more than a few striped articles of clothing.

I LOVE striped things. Stripes and plaids. Sometimes I wear them at the same time, 'cause I'm a rebel.

hey, if you're going to mention the right stripes, you shouldn't leave out the left stripes. i mean, it is an election year, and it's only politically correct!

What a wonderful series this is!
I am especially taken with the first one.
Each is so different, yet together they are wonderful.
A beautifully done series!

Too many stripes, and I am reminded of Beetlejuice, which isn't a bad thing, really. I've tried to a few to a wall, but I just made a mess of it.

What a great pick of striped pics...
I love stripes too. I have them in shoes, necklaces, tops, bottoms, dresses.... i think we might be related.

Great collection! Until you get the striped house you could go with striped furniture....

the stripes on the clothes are really cute but I'm just ogling the architectural ones first- wow, wow, wow. I love all of the images you picked for this point. Even my boyfriend looked up from his book and became enamored with them.

Great collection of stripes here. I have one striped top and I quite like it but I'm not ready to commit to stripes in my home. I much prefer solids (and sometimes polka dots).

The Seeker said...

Love to you

Love the little white and red striped house!

(and in my head its Stri-ped. Two syllables. more fun that way.)

Kristine said...

I'm a sucker for stripes too. Perhaps the order amongst the chaos... meh, who cares why, stripes rock.I have many striped shirts and every time I wear one my husband has to make mime jokes. Every time. He can't control himself.

The striped cathedral ceiling is crazy!
Love your dresses. Perfect flattering shapes!

I'm in the same boat as next house is going to have to have striped walls. No questions asked. I can't get enough of how bold they look!
