I have always been a bit partial to stripes, white & navy to be precise... I sorta have a problem. Do you think they have a support group for folks obsessed with stripes?? I just can't help myself, The Captain has told me I have to stop, but they are so in right now!!! I think stripes are so fabulously French and chic, and really, what more do you need??? Black and white are the in colors, so do yourself a favor and buy some!! You will be able to wear these for-ev-er!
