Smitten for Stripes

Always been a fan of stripes, but this Spring, Chevron stripes have zig-zagged straight into my heart! You can put them on anything and it's insta-cute. Whether it's clothing, accessories, furniture, dishes or even a wall, they are just so fun! 
I wish I had more places to wear dresses like this. Laura Sanchez wore this amazing chevron-stripe satin-backed crepe dress with all the frilly ruffles around the hemline by designer Vicky Martin Barrocal, to the Marie Claire Prix De La Moda Awards in 2010.

On a more casual level, I posted this dress in my previous blog, True Ruffle Love, and I am kind of obsessed. Perhaps it was my inspiration for this entire blog entry? Either way, fancy stripes make me happy!
