Post Puzzle

Blazer, Banana Republic. Skirt, vintage. Sandals, Nine West.

If your retinas are burning from this print overload, I may need to send a check to your ophthalmologist. Modern etiquette is tricky - where is Emily Post when you really need her? I suppose we could venture further into the clan and consult Peggy, Peter, Cindy, Anna, Lizzie, Daniel, or Elizabeth, but is this kind of social sensibility genetic? My retina-burning question aside (a burning question in itself), I'd much rather learn about the Post offspring with the recessive gene - the black sheep who put their Belgian shoes on the coffee table, slurp their cafĂ© au lait, and play Angry Birds during a performance of Swan Lake (in a loge, no less). Now, that's a SLICE TV show I could get behind.

This is so cute! I love the unexpected twist on matching. Stripes and squares usually are a "no no" but you pull it off effortlessly. Love it.

I love the combination of stripes and the checkered dress! I had never heard of Emily Posts Institute before, but to me, it sounds like a place I wouldn't want to be... x

I noticed you aquired a few vintage pieces and I have to say you put them in good use!I like the unexpected combination of checks and stripes.
I thought you had gone already!!

You are a pattern mixing queen and you crack me up- I must admit to being addicted to several Slice reality tv shows! I was cathing up on my posts and saw that you used "tete de moine" as a badminton swear word- funny enough it's my favourite type of cheese!

Not retina searing at all - I love mixing patterns. The whole outfit is wonderful!
