Pattern Play

Tuesday, August 7, 2012 184 0

 

Top: Joe Fresh. Skirt: Necessary Objects. Handbag: J.Crew EdieΒ (on sale now!). Shoes: Boutique 9. Necklace: Forever 21.Β Bracelet: Henri Bendel. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

More print mixing today. Β I think I’m starting to get the hang of it, although my Man did rhetorically ask “Dots and stripes. . . does that match?” when he saw me.

    Jenny, I wore something similar some months ago and my bf asked the same Q! I wore stripes on top, polka dots on my skirt and kept it monochromatic though. Not quite as daring as you! πŸ˜‰

    I absolutely love it!! I am loving your style. Oh and boys — haha! My husband asks things like that all the time. They’re too funny. And that’s because my husband is pretty fashionable. He just likes to stick to classics, not trends. LOL.

    I LOVE mixing dots and stripes. Funny you did a post on this today because I just came across the latest Khols ad on facebook. They had a model wearing dots and stripes too and the comments were lethal. I’m guessing the general public still does not appreciate pattern mixing. But it’s okay, they’ll catch on. On another note, so in love with your lavender Edie.

      I just went over to check out the Kohls comments, and WOW, I could just imagine what those people would say about my outfit! I actually like the outfit in the ad, and can’t believe how many people commented about riding a bike in heels! Thanks so much for your lovely comments Jenee!

    Did you get the Joe Fresh top recently? Can’t be… I was there yesterday and no sign of it (wah wah). Bottom line: it’s gorgeous and I LOVE what you’ve done with the skirt and top together. Amazing.

    Just found your blog today!

    Cheers!

      I bought the top in May, so I don’t think it’s still available. They do have a similar one right now, but I believe it’s navy and burgundy (great for Fall). Thanks so much for your sweet comments!

    You look so lovely and cheerful! I can’t decide which piece I like more, the top or the skirt! πŸ™‚

    I’ve been pattern-mixing so much lately that my hubby has gotten into it himself! Putting argyle with stripes, plaid with stripes, and even thin stripes with wide stripes. I’m so proud! πŸ˜‰ http://librarianforlifestyle.wordpress.com/2012/07/01/bonus-pattern-mixing-like-a-pro/

      Nope, I post both the positive and negative comments. I mostly moderate comments because I get an unbelievable amount of spam. I would however not post any comment that is extremely offensive or mean, for example something racist or using a lot of fowl language. Oh, and I just tried to e-mail you but the e-mail address you provided is invalid.
