Concrete Catwalk // Brushstrokes & Brocade

October 1, 2012

Two of my favorite patterns, smushed into one sassy little look.  See below to find my biggest tip on how to try out the look, and let me know your favorite way to wear the Midas Touch in the comments…

Metallic makes the best neutral, in my humble opinion… Challenge yourself to wear yours just like you’d wear your favorite pair of denim (really!) and you’ve got yourself some showstopping gilded gams.
