I love stripes, I really really really do. I think, stripes is the safest and classiest print anybody (even the jailbirds) can pull off. It doesn't discriminate, isn't shape conscious most especially the thin stripes. And I love that i've found this one from thrifting. 

Anyway stripe isn't just a bunch of lines. If we dig deeper, er google more, stripe has a crazy history that involves some Monks, the Pope, prostitutes, hoodlums, zebra and the American flag. If this becomes a movie I will definitely watch it. If you wanna know more just read it here and here.

Now I wonder, is there a hidden story behind polka dots and micro shorts? I wanna know.

And that tells us that fashion isn't shallow.Totally!
