I will be the first to admit I thought this combo was, well, maybe just a bit too much. But…I love it! In case you’ve missed it, gingham is having a moment. As in you need some. Stat. I personally am a sucker for fabrics and patterns that remind me of my girlhood and my Mom’s awesome sewing prowess. We wanted a dress….she whipped it up. Even for our Barbies! Sadly, I lack her skills but think of her every time I put together something “smashing.”
Or you might say…clashing. This outfit was totally spontaneous. I love the different sized patterns, the fitted retro silhouette, the bow-tied cold shoulder. Lovely classic pearls from Chris. And the vintage bag is the perfect finishing touch as far as I’m concerned. $18. Score!
