Big, Bold Prints

Dress: ModCloth // Shoes: Hautelook // Necklace: Krafty Kash // Sunnies: F21

I'm obsessed with prints.  However, the prints I usally wear are pretty subtle.  Quirky, but subtle.
But there's nothing better than a big, bold print to make you feel ready to take on the day.

  Sure, a big print might seem intimidating to some, but if you keep the rest of your outfit simple, you'll see it's quite a fun way to make a statement... and an entrance.  If you want people to notice you when you walk in a room... then a dress like this one is the kind of dress you need.

Even my husband noticed that the dress had big stripes AND big flowers on it.  Yeah, pattern mixing at it's best right there on the dress.  Perfection.  Keeping with the stripe pattern of my Cannes-Do Attitude dress by ModCloth, I went with a sassy pair of striped heels.  It's a lot.  I know.  But by keeping the rest of my outfit simple, it works.  I felt powerful in this dress... Classy & in charge.

Are you brave enough to try a big print?  It doesn't have to be a dress... a bold scarf or blouse is an excellent way to test your fashion boundaries!  My advice is to go for it, though.  I promise you'll feel as wonderful as you look!

  1. Lynn from Hearted Girl sent me this way and I'm so happy she did! I love the big bold print on you, espeically with those gorgeous sunnies. I am a huge fan of big and loud prints, I'm pretty shy so I like my clothes to speak for me ;)
    cheers.

  3. cute dress! Bold stuff is scary sometimes, but I definitely think it makes a statement. Everytime I see someone that is wearing something 'bold' I get a tinge of jealousy, wishing I could pull it off. But usually, when I try, i realize I can... You just have to do it! =)

  5. Wow! Amazing dress :) I don't think I'd be brave enough to try it in a dress form, maybe a top? I am a Plain Jane when it comes to my clothes.
