“It’s a luscious mix of words and tricks…”  No, it’s not. It’s the finale of Pulling off Prints week.  In the mood for mingling?  Us, too.  With the weekend in sight, we’re feeling adventurous.  So, we thought we’d throw a bunch of stuff together and call it fashion.  Kidding.  Mixing prints is impossibly cool.  It can take an outfit from ehhhh to ooooh.  Apprehensive about this print mixing business?  Here are a few tips to get you started:  Pick one bold pattern and pair it with something more subtle.  Stick to classic color combinations.  You know, to avoid looking like you recently flew the cuckoo’s nest.  Experiment a little – or maybe even a ton.  There are no other rules.  It’s that easy.

Look at all my brightly colored print children socializing:

If you don’t feel like fussing with prints, no worries.  Mix yourself a strong cocktail or two. Who knows?  By sundown, you might notice a shift in your perspective on pattern play.  Enjoy your weekend!
