Nothing oozes Christmas spirit quite like bright red & white stripes, and I’m taking a cue from this classic motif as the theme for my holiday wrapping this year. A bold wall dressed in floor-to-ceiling stripes is a guaranteed showstopper; the layers of a traditional red velvet cake incorporate the look into the holiday feast. And don’t even get me started on this stunning striped skirt… Why, oh why was I not born at a time when this was appropriate attire for a Christmas fête?!
