The ladies over at Everybody Everywear really threw me for a loop this time. The newly assigned challenge is to mix patterns. Yikes! This is definitely something I’ve never done before and a quick check of my closet revealed very few patterns at all let alone patterns I could mix and not look ridiculous wearing. This one required a serious trip to the store!
After several hours of searching through thrift stores, boutiques and my favorite retail destinations, I think I came across something that looks pretty good. I know it’s probably not as daring as some would do but I’m just not a pattern kind of person. I can probably count the number of patterned items in my closet on one hand.
This is what I used to create my look:
DownEast Basics Rock Star Jeans $54.99
Calvin Klein Tie Dye shirt in brown $24.99 – identical to the blue one shown
Etienne Aigner Montclair Tote – $107
Ballasox stretch flat by Corso Como in gold $60
Gold bangles from Claire’s – I think I paid $10.50 – can’t find on online to link to
Here’s the Polyvore of the look. Couldn’t find the tie dye shirt in brown.
And here’s how I put it together.
What do you think? I mixed tie dye and mosaics in my look for the Everybody Everwear challenge.
