Vertical stripes...

Its Friday again and I'm a happy soul!










Not so long ago, petite little girls like myself, were told to stay away from horizontal stripes and wear vertical stripes only. Vertical stripes elongate the body and make one look longer and leaner!
Well, gone are those days!
Today, when we speak of the stripe trend, all I can see around me are horizontal stripes. Who cares if it suits one's body type or not, everyone (including myself) is happily sporting horizontal stripes.
And then I ask myself, why not? After all, fashion is all about breaking rules.

This morning, digging into my closet for something bright and colorful, I came across this old shirt and the vertical stripes took me by surprise! My eyes are so used to the horizontal stripes that the vertical ones came as a refreshing change. I just had to wear it.

Tell me, what kind of stripes would you wear, vertical or horizontal?

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!






                                                                 What I Am Wearing:
                                 shirt- Liz Claiborne(old)    denim- Hollister    faux leather jacket- Wilson Leather
                                 bag- Steve Madden    heels- Gianni Binni    belt- Fossil    neon band watch- Ebay
                                 shades and watch- Guess    bracelets- handmade by a friend    necklace- Kohls( bought by a friend)

                    Thanking you                                                                              Yours fashionably
                                                                                                                               Juneli

P.S.- Please ignore that awful belt tag showing from underneath the belt! How could I miss it? I almost yelled at my photographer husband for not noticing that!

  2. As usual, I'm loving all the bright colors in your outfit! Juneli, your outfits always make me smile because they're so FUN! I don't think I actually own any vertical stripes (only horizontal) and I'm quite petite. Have a wonderful weekend!
