"Too Much Information"
I found this plaid skirt & patterned top. It's the sort of mish-mash that would have done my poor Mother's head in if she saw it. A while ago, I discovered the joys of mixing patterns & I've never looked back. It's so much fun to see what you can put together from seemingly unlikely combinations. It's kind of Deluxe Nerd Dressing.
But it's a look that's not for everybody. Recently, I posted a photo on wardrobe remix that combined ocelot footless tights with a brown patterned pleated skirt. One of my contacts, commented that the clashing patterns was "too much information". English is probably not her first language, but I understood what she meant. I may not be the channeller of conventional 'good taste' but at least I have a good time with my wardrobe!
