Bold Print

A funny story:

When I went to Banana Republic and assemble this look I immediately want to ask an opinion about this bold print mix to anybody that was around... so I went to the sales girl who opened the fitting room for me and asked... here's what happened:

- At first she has serious doubts about it

- One minute later she came back and said: I would never put this look together but I guess I like it and called a co-worker for a second opinion. This one was even more skeptical about my look

- Another minute passed by and the first one came back with her phone and said: You know what, as more as I look at it, more I like it! Can I take a picture of you? I want to wear this for my birthday party... she loved it, end of story!

Well, if I had iron the blouse before I took the pictures I would love this look as much as that girl...

  1. Oh my gosh! Gingham pants!!! I've died and gone to heaven!

  2. Moniquinha, sucesso total na Banana Republic! rs
    Adorei o look, eu tbm sou incapaz de fazer funcionar estampas... Preciso de umas aulas, urgentes! Talvez um post ensinando passo a passo como nós, pobres mortais, conseguiríamos misturar estampas sozinhas. Eu já sei que as cores devem ter harmonia (que as estampas devem ter um elemento em comum), mas é muito mais difícil do que simplesmente isso. Ex: O tamanho das estampas de uma e outra peça, influencia? Listra combina com listra? Xadrez combina com floral, etc??????
    Vc está virando especialista em misturar estampas!!! :)

  3. I agree, don't need to think about it, this look rocks :)

    p.s. thanks so much for your very sweet comment.x

  4. Gingham pants??? LOVE! Great way of pattern mixing lady :)

  5. This is an example of when mixing and matching prints works! So cute, thanks for the inspiration.


I'd love to hear your opinion... Thanks for visiting!
