What's Black and White And Striped All Over?

Answer: Me. Duh. I'll just let today's outfit speak for itself:
Faux pearl necklace-inherited
Black t-shirt (under blouse)-Forever21
Black and white striped blouse-Arc
Black taffeta underbust corset-Punk69
Black and white handwarmers-Hot topic
Black and white striped skirt-Salvation Army
Buckle boots-Ross
Yes, I am very aware that this is A LOT of stripes. But when I saw the skirt at the Salvation Army in Wellington and remembered the blouse, I knew I had to have it! Several people complimented me on my "dress", so I think they matched very closely-it's hard to see in the picture, but the black stripes in the blouse are just a bit wider, and the white stripes in the skirt are the same, so they don't match exactly-but the corset broke up the patterns enough so people didn't notice, much like my red corset did for the polka dot blouse and skirt in this outfit. For some reason, almost-matching skirts and blouses from different places make me absurdly happy. Go figure. Do any of you have weird fashion tics that give you large amounts of joy for no particular reason?
