Black and White and Striped All Over

Perhaps I was subconsciously channeling Beetlejuice when I chose my outfit? I caught it this weekend, right at my favorite scene too- the one where all the boring adults are having dinner at start dancing and singing. I am physically incapable of changing the channel when that movie is on!

Come Mr. Tallyman, tally me banana!

Moving on… It’s hard to tell, but my dress has very thin pinstripes on it, making me a triple pattern (texture?) wearer. Still got less weird looks than yesterday’s yellow tights!

    Okay, I knew I’d love this one from the title alone…I love me some black and white stripes! The shape of that top is so interesting, and I love the mix of textures and patterns!

    I like this combo. Very sophisticated and kind of reminds me of a Paris style of dress.

    I love Tim Burton and all, but tell me this is not hilarious: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bFzLRP8e4vE

    Beetlejuice may be the best unintentional fashion reference ever!!! Hey, it’s working for you. And you look so pretty and happy in these photos. I’m telling you, I’m really enjoying this inadvertent background tour of your fam’s house! Keep the fun locations coming.

    I’m loving this outfit! The striped top looks fantastic on you. I also saw Beetlejuice on last night! I was running out the door, although I wish I could have watched it!
    Have a great day :)

    P.S. There’s a giveaway just in time for summer over on my blog, City Brewed!
