Striped attire that doesn’t make me look too wide!

I think I need to play with stripes that go in directions other than just horizontal.  And perhaps the width of the stripes have something to do with it, too.

I’m going to need to play around with stripes more.  Today I was shopping and found an adorable nautical-themed blouse!  I went to go try it on and… well… because of the thick vertical stripes and my petite frame…

‘Horrible’ doesn’t even describe how it made me look and feel when I saw myself in the changing room mirror.

I really want a sailor-esque top… curse you, stripes!
