I really wish there was an awesome, specific, 'ah-ha' story I could share with you when I realized it was ok to mix and match prints together.
But I don't have one. Sorry. So I'll generalize:
there was a moment. probably in my bedroom. probably standing in front of my mirror. probably with some crazy-craze combination of prints or patterns on. and I probably was wondering if I could actually wear whatever outfit it was into the real world.
And then a lightbulb goes off in my head-
a.) um, I can buy dresses or tops or whatever with not-necessarily-matching-prints on them.
b.) I've seen such things in real live stores.
c.) heck, I usually covet said items and want to take them home with me.
d.) so why can't I create them out of the separates that I already own?
But in all honesty, I don't know when I started rationalizing the mixing of prints. But boy, I'm sure glad I did.
Because prints are fun. And interesting. And you have to be sorta clever to make the outfit work together.
Kinda like a clothing collage. And who doesn't love collages?
