On stipes and such

I'm so glad that nautical theme is back this season! I've been in love with it for years, ever since my grandmother gave me this absolutely adorable summer sailor suite with a white mini skirt and a wide-collar striped jacket. It even had a pair of golden anchors embroidered somewhere on the side pockets!
This year, my quest for stripes started rather early, some time in January. As it turned out, though, finding a nice-looking striped anything is not that easy. However, I didn't give up and my endless browsing, both online and in stores finally started to yield some results.
This dress was found at BCBGMaxAzria (, a brand that I had never tried before and didn't know much about but they had a perfect striped dress, both in my size and on sale and I couldn't resist. Rummaging through my closet produced a pair of striped sandals that I bought two years ago but haven't worn that much. All in all, it was a good striped day (whatever that means).
A motoscooter as an accessory, olive

A motorcycle as an accessory, red. I guess this one goes together wih the rest of the outfit better.

Now, this picture wasn't shot from behind some bush: it is the way it's supposed to be. It's artsy,-said my fiancee seeing a question mark in my eyes.

An allien cat Lola. She's not a part of our zoo but a co-owner of a local pet store. Well, at least she acts as if she might be.

Wearing: dress by BCBG Max Azria, sandals by Chanel, purse by Christian Livingston, sun glasses by Escada
