I have a serious problem with mixing patterns. An addiction if you will. I tend to pile them on in multitudes. Probably stems from my mom not ever letting me do it when I was a kid. I would fight with her that if the colors went why didn't it work? I remember very specifically one outfit. I wanted to match a candy colored striped peter pan collar and poof sleeve shirt (i remember it so well because I loved that thing. It had white heart shaped buttons!) with a pair of light blue and white tiny checked overalls. We went around and around about it. I brought that outfit to her over and over again for approval but each time it was a no go. She just wouldn't let me out of the house looking like a crazy person. Well, I got her back for that. I look like a crazy person at least half the time I leave the house. Coco and Chase plaid jacket, Target Striped turtleneck, Vintage skirt, Hot Topic fishnets, Vintage black leather riding boots, Vintage black knit gloves (thanks Susan!), Necklace my creation!
I dunno. I guess I just like looking like a quilt.
