Top to toe in chaotic floral prints. Possibly somewhat inspired by Susie’s jeggings post. By the way, I hate the term, but I love the garment. I think I like them better a la Topshop than a la American Apparel. I hate how Susie always seems to post things exactly when I’m thinking of doing the exact same thing, she just gets there sooner. For example, I hate the amazingly original idea (pshh) to do a OD on leopard print post, but lo and behold, later that very week, Susie done it. But, then again, what doesn’t she do? Just so we get this straight, if she starts rocking one-legged pants and DIY epaulettes, thats proof enough that she’s reading my mind.

My latest love affair can easily be blamed on the following series of images (find the rest here) that have showcased the beauty that can be found only when patterns are collided into a cacophony of visual ‘desert’. Pattern mixing is something I have learned to love due largely to one of my style gurus, Style Bubble. As you’ll see in the second half of this post, I’m using my bedspread as an alternative to the wonderful lengths of fabric that Vogue has the luxury of using. No, I’m not ashamed, in fact, I find myself very resourceful.
