This photo, my friends, is clear evidence that I practice what I preach, specifically breaking the fashion rules and even more specifically, the idea of mixing prints. It's hard to tell in the photo, but the scarf around my waist is all sorts of prints- diagonal stripes, checks, etc. And the dress is a sort of geometric polka-dot. And I think you'll all agree that it totally works! From the colors in the scarf, you can see I pulled out a turquoise to accent with my lovely cocktail ring and of course the mustard yellow shoes. Since I happen to remember, I'll break down the cost of the outfit for you:
Dress: H&M, purchased at a second-hand shop for $15
Scarf: No label, purchased at a vintage shop for $3
Earrings: Ann Taylor Loft, purchased for $7
Shoes: Pulse, purchased at a Deb Shop for $10
Ring: I'm sorry I don't know the name of the designer, purchased at Festoon in downtown Lancaster for $40
The ring cost more than the rest of the outfit combined, but it's still all less than $100 for the whole look. Not too shabby.
I think for these "Rate My Look" posts, I really need to start taking the picture at the start of the day, rather than at the end of the day like this one. I'm just a little more shiny than I'd like to be! But more importantly, what do YOU think? Love it? Hate it? Indifferent?
