go faster stripes...

Just as Queen Michelle has been searching for the perfect jeans forever, I will forever be in search of the perfect full length black and white striped opera skirt.

About 15 years ago I saw a photograph of a New York Socialite  in a Bruce Oldfield one  and I have wanted one just like it ever since.

Would I ever wear it?  No probably not.

Will it stop me looking?  Come one now! we all the know the answer to that.

If I had won the lottery at the weekend I may have been tempted to buy this little number from Oscar de la Renta's Spring / Sumer 2013 collection until I could find it. But Alas and alack...


But this Spring, it seems that stripes are getting pushed to one side by their much cooler cousin - the chevron...

Recently I've seen lots of lovely chevron clutches everywhere but what is really capturing my imagination is the use of chevrons on walls and on floors.

Hell who am I kidding. I want chevrons everywhere!


I've seen the most perfect littel rugs and runners over at Urban Outfitters that could give me the perfect little chevron rush without breaking the bank.

Only problem is, I can't make my mind up which one will give me the most fun.
