Stripe Mania

I thought it would be fun to take part in Holly Becker's stripe mania party: Bloggers wearing stripes.
It's a fun way to get to know other bloggers a little more, we know each other virtually but we wouldn't necessarily recognise one another on the street. 

Her's my photo:


There's also a little story to this outfit that I wore to a friend's wedding. I had spend weeks making a silk one shoulder dress for the occasion and when it was finally fished the day before the wedding I didn't want to wear it - I couldn't put my finger on it but it just didn't feel right. You know the feeling :-) Well, in my despair I decided to make this black & white skirt out of some IKEA fabric I had left over. I ended up finishing the hem and closure in the car on the way to the venue - that's me haha. 

Outfit breakdown:
Skirt: made by me using IKEA fabric
Top: H&M
Headpiece: Zara
Bracelet: Gift from my very stylish mother-in-law

I would love it if you took part as well. Go Stripe Mania!

Tschüss....
