When: Monday August 30, 2010

Floral dress: From this seller on eBay
Orange striped cardi: ? (Panama)
Brown wedges: Payless Shoe Source
Brown Liz Claiborne purse: TJ Max
Caramel belt: Forever XXI

Where: Got up to date with True Blood Season 3, does anyone else watch this?

I'm soooo dissapointed with my photo collage program. I use a free software called Shape Collage and I just love it. The thing is that I updated it to the latest version and now all my collages have a huge sign in the middle saying "Shape Collage". It's teerrrriiibblleee, so I won't be able to post collages anymore... sorry guys :(

I do like today's outfit though :)

I love how bright the orange cardi is. Even though I am mixing the striped pattern of the cardi with the floral pattern on the dress, I feel that they go well together and don't compete for attention. One outfit down, 6 more to go! Hopefully at the end of this challenge I will be better at mixing patterns!

Do you ever mix patterns? What are your suggestions on how to do it?

Here are all the ways in which I've worn this floral dress:

  2. I think this is a fantastic start to your challenge! I love these two prints together! The colours go really well together and I love pairing that brown belt with the dress! It looks great!

  3. Your dress is adorable, and I LOVE the belt!

    Yes, True Blood is awesome, I can't believe next week is the finally :'( and it must have been nice getting to just marathon and watch all at once, week to week is agony! Haha.

    And perhaps you could find some other software to make the collages??

  4. I love this bright cardi with this look. This is a great mix of patterns. It is too bad your photo collage program no longer works.

    I too watch True Blood and I just got caught up yesterday! It is one good show.

  5. I love love love the bright colors. Just what I need to see at the end of summer.
    And I love True Blood!

  6. That stinks about the photo collage software. If they're going to make it free, it should at least look good.

    I love the pattern mixing here! It's helpful when both patterns are in the same color family and one of them is a smaller and/or simpler pattern.

    My husband and I used to watch True Blood until we got rid of HBO for money-saving reasons. We both love it! Can't wait until it's on Netflix so we can get caught up. I read the first few books too and they're also great.

  7. wow. you really look great in the happy and colorful fresh outfit. what a sight to behold! jgm
