Stripe Mania!

June 1, 2011

Yeah yeah, I know, this is a silly post, but a fun one… and I do hope that you’ll join in and be a part of the first annual STRIPE MANIA blogger round-up! Okay so I was chatting over at Facebook with my friend Igor in Munich who changed his photo recently to one showing him all dolled up in a striped shirt and we got to talking about stripes and he had this brilliant idea to host a stripey twitter day and then it evolved and now we’ve come up with a virtual #Stripe Mania party. So, would YOU like to join us?’

Stripe Mania!

Here’s what you need to do to play along:

1. Take a self portrait (or have someone take your photo) when you are a wearing a shirt or dress with stripes — and accessorize if you’d like – have fun, be unique, show your personality and get creative. The photo needs to show your face and at least part or all of your shirt or dress so we can see what you are actually wearing. It also needs to be current, so nothing older than a month — try to take the photo especially for Stripe Mania. :)

2. Upload the picture to your blog, website, twitpic, flickr, etc.

3. Tweet the link to: @IgorJosif and @decor8 using hashtag #stripemania.

4. Once I see your photo, I’ll pin it to this Pinterest board with your blog name and link.

Tweet your pic anytime between now and June 12th. On Monday, June 13th I’ll post the photos on decor8 with a big shout out to all who participated. No prizes, nothing to compete for… just to have fun and see how many bloggers actually do wear stripes! And okay, it would be fun to see all of my favorite bloggers out there so this is a bit of a virtual meet and greet, too. Much love to you guys and remember, stripes rule, stripe mania, wear stripes! :)

    (And I *heart* jcrew, too, the blog post I’m working on is about making a bracelet from a jcrew shopping bag! Crazy timing, I almost didn’t believe my eyes!)

    Thanks so much for making this day FUN:)

  • Reply becky June 4, 2011 at 1:39 am

    OMG, I have been wearing some iteration of the nautical stripes my entire life; somewhere in my house I have a picture of me as a teen wearing one I astutely found in the Liz Claiborne for men section. It was my fave, and I had no boobs at the time, so it worked out just fine.

  • Reply Marty J. Christopher June 4, 2011 at 2:08 am

    A reader of mine pointed me in this direction because I just completed a month of wearing stripes EVERY day with no repeats. The project was called Stripes Every Day for the Month of May. I will totally submit the photos to you guys, but I’m not done yet. I got so behind, I’m only on May 14th or something like that. I should be done with them by the end of the weekend. In the mean time, you can check out what I did complete so far here:

    I loved this initiative. Actually, it was very difficult to stand front of the camera.. But in the meantime it was very funny.

    My kiddo wanted to do this but refused to wear navy stripes. I also embroidered pretty shades of pink stripes on a white shirt, which of course are invisible. I just gave away my only striped dress. Anyway, I took a picture of her in stripes since mine was a bust. We had a lot of fun together doing this even if we changed it around a bit!

      @casapinka – So cute! But the photo has to be of a blogger, you can include children, but you needed to be in the photo. Sorry we cannot use this for the pin board but thank you for sharing, she’s adorable!

    ahhh – can’t believe I missed this – I made myself a stripey dress on Saturday and posted it on my own blog, aahh, never mind – if I’m not too late the picture is here:


    Great idea – liked looking at everyone elses stripes!
