Is it only me who can't get enough of stripes?!

I have striped shirts in every color seems like (well I dont have it in green, purple etc.).. but I think I buy so many sub-conciously and all of a sudden, I have 8 striped shirt floating around. My mind asks the following question before buying any shirts: a) Is it a good color? b)Would it make a good professional and casual clothing choice? c) Is it a color/pattern you don't have or is unique? d) Can you layer it to make it transistion from season to season? Once that list is taken care of, I think no further!

What kind of criteria do you use when making a shirt-buying decision?

PS I am so proud of myself for not shopping the last month AT. ALL - not on clothing, shoes, accessories - nada! (not even Value Village/Savers 50% off sale) - Applause please! I know I am so proud of myself!


  1. I LOVE stripes! They are my new staple this season. I gravitate to them every time I step into a store. And congrats on NOT shopping! I've tried and it's so tough. So, so tough.

  2. I am knee deep in a closet full of stripes as well. It's always like, "WHERE did all these come from??" I SHOULD have more method to my buying madness but...I don't. I just buy whatever tickles my fancy and fits my budget.

    I love the pink!!
