Happy Monday Everyone!
I trust a good week-end was had by all! Thriftjuice is tired this morning! I stupidly stayed up too late last night watching the MTV music awards. That’s three hours of my life I will never get back. I am a sucka! I do this every year….dunno why! Well that’s not entirely true – I do like to sit on my perch and judge…..just a little. So with that said, here is my very brief synopsis of the show. It was bad! Too much blatant lip syncing and bravado for my liking. The usual suspects were in fine form: Gaga, Adele, Bruno Mars, and of course Beyonce (who was absolutely stunning!) The fashion was meh. And ….um, Rock Music….anyone, Bueller? Is music played with guitars still a thing? I was quickly reassured when the Foo Fighters won an award for Best Rock Video. In his acceptance speech, my lover, Dave Grohl laid all fears to rest. You gotta love D-gro, check out this little snippet from his speech: “Never lose faith in real rock and roll music, you know what I mean? Never lose faith in that. You might have to look a little harder, but it’s always going to be there.” Amen and Hallelujah! Isn’t he is just so damn cool!
I love to mix patterns!
Why does this work?
1) Because the polka dots are subtle and the stripes are bold.
2) The vest helps to minimize the intensity of the stripes.
3) The two patterns are quite opposite from each other, which means that the eye focuses on one pattern at a time.
4) Black is the common denominator between the two prints.
Tip: Stripes and Polka dots are probably the easiest patterns to mix successfully.
If you don’t have a classic patent leather Mary Jane in your wardrobe….
