The neckerchief and moccasins in today's outfit made me think, "cowboys and indians". Is anyone else picking up on this?
While my inspiration for mixing patterns comes from Delightfully Tacky, I also found these photos of Joan Blondell, Ann Dvorak, and Paulette Goddard, to show you how the 1930's have influenced today's outfit.
I wore this to work this morning and my mom loved it. My mom also made the awesome red and black beaded crochet bracelet that I'm wearing. Did I mention that my mom also lets me borrow clothes and jewelry? She's amazing!
Living in the fluctuating temperatures of the desert, it's always a challenge to create an outfit that can hold it's own with and without layers. That's why I've shown two different versions of this outfit and I think both are equally successful, although the solid blues in the second one give the eye a nice break from the busyness of all the patterns.
