I wanted an all stripes look. Not really the typical outré/avant garde look for me but I figured rehashing basics and making it quite atypical sort of falls back to the same outré category. haha:) now that is one styling come full circle. This look was conceived in a very uninspiring day, where my body was aching in all places. Despite my penchant to up my mood by wearing invigorating clothes via use of bright colors, somehow, color wasn't making a way for me in feeling better. Uninspired and sick, I simply took in basic pieces, rehashed it last minute and came up with something well a fun take at stripes. The first thing that came to mind are the stripes that prisoners wore back then. Not as severe because as you know I never take inspirations literally. Here african inspired earrings, hawaiian florals, miami board short stripes, and indian paisley shirt create a multi cultural look.
Its been 5 months since Ive been struggling with my health. Its quite unnerving at times but I have to be strong. My sister told me the best way to handle the matter is to convince myself i can be well again. Sigh. IF only it were that easy. Im crossing my fingers and Im hoping the best. So pardon me my amazing lb friends for sporadically taking time off from lb. God knows I miss posting and seeing your amazing looks. But right now my important goal is to get well.
