These stripes can be found at Varga. The shop was named after Peruvian painter Alberto Vargas (of pin-up girl fame) and his beautiful, playful and sexy pieces. The name is perfectly fitted to a shop that exudes the same energy. While you are there you may feel like you have gone back in time to the closet of your dreams. Red/White Top $30.00.
