Is it possible to overdose on stripes?
Well, this post certainly tests your tolerance as far as stripes are concerned. It may also prove that my stripe addiction has gone a tad too far…
But you know how it is: sometimes you just can’t help it. Like with chocolate: you keep eating and eating for as long as there’s something left in the box because, well, it’s there, you know, and… No? You mean that’s just me? Oh blimey…
Anyway, it was a rainy Saturday in Helsinki… The perfect weather for my new red parka. Did I mention the lining has stripes?
Then I remembered I had this navy and white stripy umbrella, which would look just fantastic with red. Of course, I also have quite a collection of navy and white Breton tops, which would also look great with the red parka. And then the whole idea sort of got out of hand…

So, mixing stripes, yes or no?
