I kind of wanted this outfit to have a man repellent quality, so I was hoping that it would look a little like a train wreck, but a very well planned train wreck. Haha. So, I didn't really want the florals to match.
I wanted the patterns to be very close to matching, but askew just enough to annoy people. ;D
There's a method to my madness. However, at the same time, I can totally see people having that 'wtf is this nonsense' knee jerk reaction. So, I took in my fair share of stares, but I felt right as rain. <3
I really love the mix of textures and patterns in this look. The floral blouse and skirt are both partially sheer. The back of the blouse has a separate floral lace panel. The floral high low skirt is pleated and is meant to be worn with the shortest section in the front, but I simply twisted it to the side to create a cascade effect. The vintage floral blazer actually has a lot of interesting pattern work, including fruits and polka dots. Click here to see a better view. I wore it as a make-shift bustle skirt for most of the day.
I very much enjoyed wearing this dark, feminine, edgy, bohemian clash fest. Hope you dig it! <3
