stripes on the brain

Photobucket
from left to right; first two both from French Connection, Urban Outfitters, Permanent Vacation, Weekday, St James at Arthur Beale, A.P.C. and Daniel Palillo for Ashtray

for a good while now i've been craving an oversized striped t-shirt, both eBay and Etsy have proven fruitless in my hunt for the perfect stripes. these are the few i have found that even come close to what i have in mind..... i maybe need to stop being so particular!

Striped tops can be a great basic to have so I think it's ok to be fussy!

i was in london last weekend and one of the stalls in spitalfield market had some oversized tops, there were definitely some stripy ones there but i think they were short sleeved

Hey Elisabeth! Everyone is invited on my blog again, I was in a 'I stop my mood' blog a few days ago, but that's over now ;) But I've been searching for a long striped cardigan for weeks now, also a hard task to accomplish. But I think searching for thát particular item isn't that bad, because if you manage to find the right one you will probably like it for years.

Hey snap...i've been eyeing up the striped pocket dress in AA but haven't tried it on yet. Not sure it'll be exactly what i'm looking for though...oh what it is to be picky!
