Let there be stripes! (4)
Last week's post about children's books got me thinking of the classics I loved as a kid, and among those is Astrid Lindgren's Pippi Longstocking.
As a tribute to the wonderful and zany Pippi, I wore thigh-high yellow, gray and black socks, with my Pedro Garcia Oxfords for a little more class and a wool mini-dress by master couturier Roland Mouret, one of my favorite designers, for Gap.
Amusingly, Yasu completed a fabulous Children's Book Week on her blog with a post about Pippi, featuring beautiful illustrations.
And apparently I'm not the only one who's into stripes: this little Scandinavian beauty, whom I met at the Swedish Institute last week, had a lot of style for a 1-year-old, and pretty much wore stripes from head to toe!
