STRIPES – The Inspiration.

Stripes were all over the catwalk this season – but not just your plain old breton stripe.  This spring the classic pattern has got a re-vamp, and I love it!

Inspiration #1 PRADA

Inspiration #2 JIL SANDER

Inspiration #3  MOSCHINO

Inspiration # 4 SONIA RYKIEL

OHHH I’m drooling.  Look out tomorrow for my favourite stripes on the highstreet this season!  Hope you like my inspiration (:!
