Well, yes I went on a bit of a rant about the trendiness of certain patterns (tribal print being one of them) in a post from not too long ago. I can understand how it may seem hypocritical that I’m striking a pose in them here. However, I’m finding this seemingly hypocritical situation a fabulous opportunity to share my opinion on purchasing trendy anything… patterns in particular. It’s best to buy cheap OR invest big. Let’s take tribal for example. I got these jeans at TJ Maxx for $20. They don’t fit like my Helmut Lang jeans, but when I’m feeling funky, they do the trick. When Tribal is COMPLETELY dead like disco (actually disco lives on in my heart. The Bee Gees are winners forever) I can sell these to Buffalo Exchange and i won’t have broken the bank.
OR
Invest big in pieces that would authentically have a tribal pattern. A bag, a jacket, a beautiful blanket for your home, or a well made rug or a TeePee. I really believe that if something is authentic and well made it’s never going to go out of style. See: Turquoise Jewelry.

I feel the same. I'm defunitely too old for some trends, but what I want to try for one season.. TJ Maxx or Target does the trick! This is so cute!
