Mixing patterns fashionably

Out of all my sense, touch is the strongest one. Textures, patterns and the whole shebang! I love touching different surfaces; exploring, learning, investigating and admiring. Perhaps, this is the reason why I ended up being a designer. I could live and die in a fabric store. I would go up every isle, feel every kind of fabric with passion. I could not imagine doing anything else. Being in fashion feels right like home. I always say that it’s a beautiful yet cruel world. There’s always room for freaks like me to express themselves through clothes, creativity and inventiveness.  All that to say…my outfit today was a mix of patterns and textures. That’s how I love my outfits to be; fierce, happy, interesting, deep and full of contrast.  Here’s the result to today’s outfit:

I wore my favorite striped shirt I bought 2 years ago from my trip to the Middle East. I love it because it’s sexy in a very sleek way. It’s boxy and it’s masculine but in a very feminine way. I don’t know if y’all get me!! But seriously this shirt can be worn in some many different ways. You can make it look romantic, you can make it look feminine, you can make it look preppy, you can make it look masculine…the possibilities are endless! So I paired my shirt with a pencil skirt I bought in a warehouse sale a while ago. It’s a European brand skirt and it ended up costing me a whole 5$!!! It’s sincerely comfortable and amazing in color and texture. It’s ribbed in a soft way. I added a vintage necklace I had in my collection and then ended the whole outfit with my favorite Jessica Simpson clog sandals.

This is a look I would definitely wear to work or a date or a girls’ night out. It’s pretty comfortable despite it looking a little uptight (so far away from that in real life!).
