road to recovery

big shocker: i am obsessed with stripes. it's a problem.
i buy stripes often enough to fill a part-time job.
when i found myself checking out with YET ANOTHER NAVY STRIPED SHIRT,
i said enough is enough! (starting after this purchase, of course.)

i told russ & i am now telling you. NO MORE. i will not buy another striped shirt this year.
it's a sick sick compulsion, & the first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem, right?
covering my eyes to protect my anonymity || the contraband

if you see me relapsing, feel free to intervene.
seriously.

This has been on my mind a lot too. It's a little sad how much I depend on stripes in my wardrobe. I've even passed it on to my husband, Gabe. When we're out shopping for him it's a 4:1 ratio of stripes vs. other patterns in the dressing room.

I say keep buying stripes. If you find something that works for you then go with it, right?

But maybe I'm not being supportive.

I hardly have ANY and I love them!! I never find ones I like though!

A completely understandable obsession... hmm looking at these comments we aren't helping much with your resolve are we??

I'm glad you've come clean. I need to do the same. I think I'm still in denial. I'm working through the steps though.

Angie said...

Well you certainly look great in them!! ;)

Just consider stripes your personal clothing statement and wear at least one striped thing every day!

Missy said...

I know how you feel. I have about the same amount...
