An Experiment in Mixing Patterns

by Christen Coppola

So I really wanted to mix patterns lately. The models at Loft and Banana always do it, but then when I try, I feel like I look like a crazy person!

I have a feeling I got it today! A small stripe on top, and a funky pattern on bottom. This outfit cost me less than $30 at Banana! Top was $13 final sale, and then half off, and skirt was $44, then half off. Pretty good for Banana, since this skirt originally retailed for $89.

I got this shirt in a white and Blue print too! This skirt is a 00P which, at Banana is basically my holy grail. Lol

Shoes are Isaac Mizrahi for Target that I thrifted. Necklace is also thrifted for $1. And I'm totally sporting my vintage Gucci watch that I'm pretty sure is fake, but I found it for $3 and spent $20 on a new battery and new leather strap! Viola!
