I always love seeing all the pictures of “stripes in real life” and people out there sporting stripedshirts. It makes my heart sing, and I’m serious. I’m working so hard to get this business going, and get people loving stripedshirts and wearing them, and it could not, would not, happen without so many friends supporting me and striping up themselves and their families. Yesterday, I got a photo from my dear friend Kate of her family, all striped up for the 4th of July and it is just plain gorgeous. Perfect. Beautiful. It says family and friends, spirit and holidays, preppy and classic, SUMMER and AMERICA! The only thing missing is Fenway Park (or another sporting event venue). Thanks Kate for sharing the beautiful photo, but also for getting so many of your family and friends all striped up. I appreciate your – and everyone’s! – amazing striped support as I trudge along with this little business.
