skinnybuddha 's Thoughts:

i am still miles away from mastering the art or mixology, as the glamourai would call it, but i am taking baby steps towards it. my closet lacks a great diversity of prints and patterns but i am happy to work with what i’ve got. now, mixing the same pattern doesn’t seem like putting too much effort into it, but really it’s not as simple as you would think. you might step into dangerous territory by coming out too costumey or too busy. you don’t want to give people head aches just by looking at you. i set out to play again with my favorite pattern, houndstooth and went for the same print for both the dress and the tights. the pattern on the tights is rather small and you only realize what it is when you look it up close. i wish the pattern on the dress was bigger so it was more in your face, as opposed to the subtle one on the tights. here is the way i styled up the same tights last year. i do believe it’s not too over the top, or it doesn’t look like i was trying to hard, it just looks right to me. i added a purple belt to break it up a little and add just a tiny touch of color to the ensemble.

I know what you mean about mastering the art of mixology! I'm still miles away from that as well. But you look fantastic! I like that you paired the same print with the dress and the tights; it makes you look really put together and chic.
