Playing with Patterns

I got this patterned dress and the sweater for $10 each at a recent "Shop the Closet" event I hosted.  I invited all my girlfriends to bring their unwanted, good clothes to sell among friends.  A lot of people weren't able to make the event, so I was very nervous at first, but it actually turned out to be the perfect sized party for the first event.  And most importantly, we all had tons of fun!  I was actually getting a high from trying on clothes, helping girls pick out clothes, and getting a bargain!  It was truly something I love doing, and it was especially amazing to share it with close friends.

After the event, I immediately played with all my purchases, which were old to my friends, but new to me!  I really liked this combo, which plays with pattern and mixes turquoise with brown.


Dress:: Charlie Jade ($10 from friend)
