Would You Wear: Bumblebee Stripes?

The stripe trend is obviously not going anywhere, since stores are packed with more stripey items than ever. I love stripes in pretty much every incarnation--thick, thin, vertical, horizontal--and I especially love seeing designers having fun with different color combinations.

Style Stealer: Yikes Stripes!

Before you say, but Julie, I don't WANT to steal this 1970's model's look: I know. It's bright, it's stripe-y, it's slightly jarring to the corneas. But!

A trip to the beach this weekend left me with some pretty nasty sunburns. Yes, I applied sunscreen. SPF 30, in fact. Apparently that wasn't enough, and now I need to figure out what I can wear that won't inflict more pain (and will distract my coworkers, who keep coming over to gawk at my…
