Pattern Play

In the past, I’ve jumbled my events and outfit posts together and I don’t think that works well. So I’ve created a new “Events” tab to cover the events I attend because I somehow always turn myself into the official photographer. The outfits I wear to those events will be a separate post.

A while ago, I mentioned my hesitation for certain patterns and prints. I’ve had these 2 pieces for a while (about a year) but I never thought of wearing them together. It’s my first time mixing prints and I love how it turned out so much that this might not be my last. As I said in my recent interview for The Africanette, every woman should understand and know how to work with her closet. It’s the reason I set out to be a personal shopper. Here’s how I’ve worn both pieces previously for Thanksgiving dinner 2013 and Valentine’s Day Banquet 2014 respectively.

    I love it! Did you notice that your earrings matched the color of the seats? Cool, huh? Anyway, it’s a unique combo. That’s one of the many things that’s great about blogging: you literally have to push yourself outside the box! Looking forward to seeing more!
