FASHION FOCUS: MIXED PRINTS
Mixing prints and patterns as well as different textures has now been remade to be popular. However, the "trend" hasn't always been on it's peak mainly because if it isn't done right, the person tends to look a little if not a whole lot of tacky. The trick with this crazy trend is to find pieces that are both subtle and bold all at once. For example, in today's look, I am wearing a black and gold stripe crop top along with a floral skirt but if you notice, both my skirt and my top share a common color, which is black. Which then somehow pulls the two opposing patterns together. Also, in this look, I decided to wear a slouch red blazer to give the outfit some kind of structure but at the same time keeping it wearable and casual.

The woven bag & bracelet are from Joan & Jesula, a Lorraine Tayne collection. Sunglasses from Giant Vintage
A few days ago, I received a special parcel from Lorraine Tayne which contained a bracelet, a beautiful woven handbag and a pair of lightning bolt earrings (not shown). I was super psyched because I loved every item! It not only suits my style but believe it or not, these pieces are pretty affordable too. Sadly, they are not available on the site anymore but if you check out their site you will see amazingly crafted jewelry and accessories that you will surely love. The Joan & Jesula collection was specifically made for women who want that everyday glam accessory and she can wear with multiple pieces in her wardrobe.
