Stripes Are The New Black!

So, I was poking around Facebook a few weeks ago and came across a post from one of my fashion buddies that I found to be rather interesting.  Apparently, and I totally missed the boat on this one, VERTICAL stripes are in! NOT horizontal, VERTICAL. Who would’ve guessed it, right? I was not prepared for that one at all.  Of course I remained a bit skeptical as I hadn’t yet seen any evidence to support this fashion prediction, BUT the MINUTE I went shopping I was attacked by stripe fever! They were everywhere! How I didn’t know about this before, I have no idea.  Maybe it is because I’m not really a stripes person.  But, fashion is fashion and it is my job to keep you not only informed, but to find fabulous vintage pieces for the fashion present.  Kudos to you, Cara Bloom of Me So Savvy for bringing this style to my attention!
