We’re Mad About Stripes

It’s really that simple. We love stripes and want to know one thing: how do you style your stripes? Miranda Valentine of Everything Sounds Better in French introduced us to the nautical-girly look a few weeks ago. Do you like Late Afternoon’s bright red stripes, a traffic-stopping striped dress, or more subtle slim stripes worn under a sweater? And what about B. Jones Style’s fearless color blocking or Brooklyn Blonde’s pattern mixing?  For a chance to win  a $100 gift certificate, show us your stripes! Either upload a photo to our Facebook page or try a YouTube video instead.

Also, our comment contest is still going full speed. Just comment on any blog post and you’ll be entered to win a $25 gift certificate. There’s a new winner selected every week!
