Monday Mode ☆ Stripe Mania ☆ COLORBOX

June 5, 2011






dress: COLORBOX (Jakarta, Indonesia) IDR 199,000 (US$22) For more info., please scroll down.

I saw a shout out about “Stripe Mania” blog party with Pinterest on decor8 facebook page update. If you are curious, interested in joining, want to know what this is about, please visit Decor8 blog post dated on June 1, 2011 or simply click here to see the post.

If I may sum up, “Stripe Mania” is a fun online event where bloggers and blog readers contribute their photos of themselves wearing a stripe outfit, the photos of them will be collected and we can see them. Holly Becker, the founder and editor of a leading design blog “decor8” and Igor Josif, a creator and curator of Interior Design & Decoration on Scoop.it came up with this idea and Holly announced how to play it on her blog Decor8. She ‘pins’ photos of participants in stripe outfits on her Pinterest page.

Needless to say, I decided to join in!

You may post your photos to participate until June 12 (my birthday!). Why don’t you just grab a stripe shirt (don’t you have one in your closet?) and take a photo to send to Holly and Igor!

Coincidentally I already had a few of these first photos above of my silly self in an outfit I recently purchased at an Indonesian brand called COLORBOX. I was going to post these for Monday Mode on June 6, today. I kid you not! I usually prefer photos without my head, but for joining this “Stripe Mania” party, it is required to have a head shot. So here they are. Shamelessly…

You know what?

I must really like stripes.

Because when I was digging through my previous fashion posts, I found this…

and this.

I could use more variety in my wardrobe, hugh…?

Since I wasn’t so happy with the first set of photos above, I decided to take some more photos wearing the same stripe outfit from COLORBOX this morning (Sunday) to post on my Monday Mode ☆ Stripe Mania. Then I dragged my girls into taking photos for it to made it a mom and daughter thing.



decor8のフェイスブックファンページが、Pinterestを利用したオンライン上の「縞模様マニア」のイベントを発表していました。興味がある方、やってみようかなという方、「縞模様マニア」イベントがどんな遊びなのかを知りたい方は、参加方法は、2011年6月1日にブログDecor8 blogに掲載された記事へ行かれるか、こちらをクリックすると、リンク先へ行きます。

「縞模様マニア」が何かを要約すると、それはブロガーまたはブログの読者が着ているストライプ(縞模様)の洋服の
写真をブロガーと読者が投稿誌、その写真をオンライン上で集め、集まった写真を皆で見るというインターネット上のイベントです。decor8の創設者であり編集者であるホリー・ベッカー(Holly Becker)と、Scoop.itというブログページのInterior Design & Decorationの著者であり管理人であるイゴール・ジョシフ(Igor Josif)が発案し、ホリーが自身のブログdecor8にてその参加方法を掲載しました。参加した方の写真を彼女がPinterestという写真掲示板のページで「ピン付け」して行きます。

もう分かっているかもしれませんが、私も参加することにしました。

6月12日(私の誕生日!)まで参加できますよ。ストライプの服を着て(一着くらい持っていません?)写真を撮って、参加してみてはいかが?

実は偶然なのですが、上の最初の方に掲載している写真は、もともと2011年6月6日の今日のマンデー・モードに掲載しようと思っていたところなんですよ。冗談抜きで!私自身、自分の顔が載っている写真より写っていないものの方が好みだったりするのですが、今回は顔が写っている写真というのが前提なので、恥けも無く私の写真をこちらに掲載しますね。

考えてみると...

実は私って縞模様の服が異様に好きみたいです。

上の2枚の写真は私のブログ上で過去に掲載していたんですよ。

もう少しタンスの中のバラエティーを増やしても良いかもしれないですね。

最初の方の写真のできがあまり自分的に満足いかなかったので、朝時間があったこともあり、COLORBOX(インドネシアのブランド)のお店で買った縞模様の服を着て、娘2人を巻き込んで、「縞模様マニア」のための写真を撮影しました。楽しかったですよ。

以下はCOLORBOXの情報です。とっても可愛いブランドだと思います。是非チェックしてみて下さい。
