Flowers and Stripes

Who would have thought it - flowers and stripes - yet bubbling away, slightly under the radar, this is a trend that works and works well!

I recently read an article on the Sharp Threads blog that expressed the trend of mixing print perfectly, have a look at the whole article it really is very good!

Below you will find my interpretation of this trend - I bought the outfit at Jean Paul Gaultier a while back and it works well on many levels - together, separately, and with the dress undone to reveal more of the print.  

I am a huge fan of JPG and if you have the chance to visit the shop at the back of Walton Street - do so -it is a fashionista haven with some of the best innovative accessories and the staff are very nice too! x
