Ok. Let’s have a quick discussion here. How do we all feel about mixing prints? I’m on the fence about it. I think I like it in moderation. But I absolutely DETEST it when people do it to be uber trendy. Like ‘oh look at me… I’m super trendy and I don’t conform and I wear whatever the fugg I want and it makes me look cool.’ Like no… you look like Britney Spears circa all of 2007. You don’t look trendy, you look nutty. Like you still haven’t gotten your power back after Sandy and you’re just like, fuck it, it’s like a grab bag of outfits! WHEW. I feel better now. That’s how I feel when these people go overboard. Show us an example, you say? Sure! See below.

Here’s the thing.. I would excuse this look (maybe) if she were in the midst of filming Sex and the City. Carrie Bradshaw was known for her kind of over-the-top outfits. Some were hits, some were misses, but we loved her despite those flaws, right? This is a miss for me and it makes me hate her. I’m just kidding! I only mildly loathe her. Ok ok I’m just kidding, seriously. BUT back to her look. What in the world is going on here? Mixing prints is totally fine but this is just atrocious. I could even forgive the wild coat over the insane dress IF the shoes were a solid color… or even matched! Throw us a bone here SJP! I feel like she is having a hard time letting go of Carrie Bradshaw, as are the rest of the lonely middle-aged house wives who miss swooning over Mr. Big. So, all in all, I don’t like this! She is one of those trying too-hard trendy people I think, right? Or am I totally off here and this is like a fashion favorite and Joan Rivers is going to praise her on Fashion Police? I can’t imagine I’m the only one who feels this way.
Ok I feel the need to mention that I wrote this post last night before I was supposed to go to bed. Unfortunately, Charlotte decided 11:30 was a good time to wake up and hang out until almost 2am. WHICH MEANS I stayed on the couch most of the night watching the Sex and the City movie on E… oddly enough. And after watching Carrie Bradshaw get her heart stomped on at 2 in the morning I felt kind of badly for writing this whole thing about her… but alas, I have to push the publish button regardless. Sorry Carrie!
I think this works here because I’m staying in the same color family. Nothing too harsh on the eyes. I mixed an aztec print sweater, stripes, and polka dots, and I don’t feel like I look like a hot mess. But maybe I do… hah! Your thoughts? Until next time, kisses!
