fash•ion (fash-uh n) | polkadots & stripes

I'm one of those people that sees displays or other bloggers who mix and match pattern, then think "Why can't I do that?" Well I finally did it and you know what? I absolutely love how it turned out.  I'm a huge advocate of applying the 'trial and error' rule to trends.  Sometimes it works and others it doesn't, but you'll never know unless you try.  Can't wait to figure out another way to combine the 2 together again.

I think it looks so nice and polished! I love polka dots and stripes (separately), but I haven't dared to mix them yet, but I might now!

You look so chic! I love the vintage dress and your gorgeous smile! I have no cool stories on pattern mixing. I suck at it. Will I be seeing you next weekend at the blogger meet up?!

I have been having lots of fun mixing patterns! At first I was a little nervous, but it's so easy and fun to do!

Your hair here... I don't know what it is but I really love it. You sort of remind me of a flamenco dancer.
