It’s here Sugers! The week I’ve been waiting for. It’s STRIPE WEEK. Oh yay. Stripes are my all time favourite thing. Somewhere along the line it became a bit of a signature move on my part, I have no idea how. But now I take it as a personal affront should someone say fat ladies shouldn’t wear stripes, then I proceed to flaunt my stripes in their face in a very childish manner. I get it, people are afraid of looking bigger than they are. But dude, stripes aren’t your enemy on that front.

Trust Aunty Suger.

So anyway, where was I? This week. This fabulous week all the Aussie Curves ladies will be sharing their striped up selves with you. Me? Well I’ve declared it stripe week on the blog and have put together three stripe outfits to show off. And if you don’t believe me on the power of a stripe by the end, well, we might not be able to be friends. At very least we’ll have to agree to disagree. If you’re lucky.

 Now let’s talk about the star of this show. And surprisingly it isn’t my gorgeous Virtu stripe jacket. It’s these mint green Virtu jeans. Woot woo. Loving them. They are comfortable to wear, have just the right amount of suck in power {and good weight to the fabric} PLUS they’re gooooorgeous. Ladies with larger legs be warned, these are a true slim fit, so try them on in-store if you can, they’ll be worth it. Promise!

This was the first wear for these jeans, I didn’t even wash them first {much to Hubby’s disgust} so I expect them to give a little more after they are washed. Best part was, I wore them in the car for over 2 hours to a party this weekend, then partied in them until almost 4am and they still looked great! They gave a little but still had a firm, supportive feel. Got to LOVE that. So good I’m trying to work out if I can justify ONE MORE pair of coloured jeans to Hubby by picking them up in hot pink too. Maybe I’ll get the crop ones and call it Summer essentials?

So there you go. A stripe outfit that screams stripes without them being head to toe. I ended up wearing a looser fitting {and longer} tee to the party because they peplum was just too restrictive and some flip flops. I didn’t end up needing the jacket at all because the warmer weather is here in earnest now and I was nice and warm on my own, thank you very much. Short version, I love this outfit but I think it’s going to be put on the back burner for now. Too hot. Already. Gah.

And don’t forget to come back Wednesday for the next stripe outfit!
