Anyway, my favorite form of pattern mixing has to be polka dots and flowers. I also did a floral/dot mix here and had fun with it. What is your favorite mix of patterns? I know stripes and flowers are also popular, and I like that look too sometimes. My issue with pattern mixing is that it has to be cohesive in some way, or it just looks like a big ol' mess. That's why I always get nervous when I attempt it, because in no way do I consider myself a pro!
For you ladies who like Lilly Pulitzer, be sure to check out the Re-Lilly page on Facebook. There are literally endless gently-used or even new-with-tags items on the page, for sale for fantastic prices. I bought this 2010 skirt, which still had the tags attached, for around $25.00 from that page a while back. It retailed for $128 so it was a nice steal!
Thanks for visiting! I'd love to hear your pattern mixing opinions.
