Spotlight On: #Stripemania Bloggers!

I’m so happy to share with you #Stripemania — a huge virtual blogroll with nearly 300 bloggers wearing stripes! But first, how this all came to be… My friend Igor and I recently hosted a virtual “Stripemania” party because we observed in our travels that lots of bloggers love to wear stripes. I wear stripes, Igor wears ’em and all of these lovely bloggers wear them too. Here’s a peek at just a few…


Natalie in San Francisco, CA and Annabel Lowe Wrigley in Warrenton, VA.


Steffi in Hamburg, Germany and Dana Miller in Cincinnati, Ohio.


Alexandra in LA and Anna Dorfman in NY.


Alicia Bock in Michigan and Alexandra Tyler from San Francisco.


Sania Pell in London and Michelle Verdugo in New Jersey.

I rounded up all 285 bloggers (some are shown above) who sent in links to photos that they took especially for #Stripemania over on Pinterest and below each photograph I inserted their blog link so it turned into a big visual blogroll where you can see all of your blogger friends. Please check it out, visit the blogs if you have time, and have fun!

I’d like to give an enormous thanks to all who got involved by sending in your photos – Igor and I had so much fun seeing all of the submissions and I loved pinning them all to our board. Again, many thanks!

    Great fun – I bought my first French sailor top this year and love it, I’m wearing it to bits! Sailors must have been far more careful with their jerseys.

    I have linen curtains with wide horizontal stripes, is that oneupmanship?
