Concrete Catwalk // Mixed Prints

August 9, 2011
gratuitous ponytail shot
when i saw that this month’s everybody, everywear theme was mixed prints,
i absolutely couldn’t wait to come up with my own take on the look.
i started with these crazy-awesome vintage silk pants, and added a top that’s an old favorite.
couldn’t stop there, though! a spotted belt & logo print handbag finished off the look.

    WOW. Amazing outfit…inspires me to get different patterned bottoms, which I realized I don’t really have. Had to resort to 2 different patterned tops. Love this look on you.

    This is such a random combination of prints. I think on most it would look as though they got dressed in the dark, but you TOTALLY rock it & look great. Great combination of shapes as well as print!

    I’m sorry but why do we think this is a good look?
