Today's outfit - 04/19

Pattern mixing trend has been discuss by bloggers and one thing that is certain for everyone (I guess) is that it’s not an easy trend to pull off, it’s easy to fall into a mediocre result because there’s a thin line between the wonderful and the vulgar.

So despite I’m not afraid of colour mixing, I’m not so sure about pattern mixing.
I’ve seen great combos done by some bloggers (just not to speak of Dries van Noten).
I think this is a big challenge, and I would like to work it a bit provided not too extreme (I’m not a girl to turn over my face to a good challenge).
But I also think that if one is not sure better do “baby steps”. Thus I remembered a Mango’s set I have, bought some time ago that is a spaghetti handle top with stars pattern and a bolero with strips.
Well the mix was already done by the designer (I think when I bought it I was ahead of the trends *laugh*), so do you think that this will count?

Keeping talking about some bloggers…

The social scientist as I am, the stylish Psyche from Economy of Style is taking a brief hiatus while she resolves her computer crash, we all hope she will be back to blogging soon.

The always nice and cute Nadine from Strawberry Kitten now with her bilingual blog continues inspirational with her personal style.

Always with great information about celebrities style and fashion, the pretty Jen from • MAHALO FASHION doesn’t save efforts to keep us updated.

The sweet Imelda from Imelda has a huge shoe’s collection, that I actually envy (in a friendly sort way).

The light at the end of the tunnel”, the beautiful and creative Jill from Couture Salope is really “the shortcut and the longest route”… to paraphrase her.

If you want to “get all the latest juice on your favourite celebs” you must check what the well informed Fresh and Fab from :::::F&F::::Late... Celeb News Served Fresh and Fab posts.

Now my outfit, as in all my outfit's photos you can click to enlarge, maybe the patterns will be more visible.

    I like your subtle pattern mixing, especially because you used a star pattern which is so popular right now!
