I remember there were days that I avoided stripes like the black plague. Growing up, that was one of those rules I read in Teen Glamour magazine or something similar that says to avoid stripes unless you want to look wide. I now can't get enough of stripes and every time I see it at the store, I have to stop myself to add more to my closet.
I focused on some stripes on stripes today with my top and skirt. Adding the poncho to keep me warm and not to overwhelm the eyes too much stripes. I then added these strappy flats which is sort a a play on stripes.
I have been reading fashion and health related magazine since I was a teen and I am not so sure the topics have changed much. In my younger years, it was more about focused on what to wear to prom, how to deal with acne and things of that nature. Now the magazines I read focus on what to wear to a black tie affair, to brunch etc or how to handle changes to your body as you age. Topics are pretty similar but just geared towards an older audience. I try not to read too many magazines now days because everything starts to look similar and the topics are all the same. I guess it took about 20+ years for me to realize it is sort of a waste of money to buy these types of magazines.
