Graphic Novel

Black & white graphic prints are just my go-to look, I suppose. I like the impact of a strong graphic print, and the play of patterns, especially in black and white. I'm sporting a MAJOR vintage score: a rare, reversible 1980's cotton windbreaker in a vertical B & W stripes on one side,  AND a cute kitten print on the reverse. The cats are so cute! It is pretty comical, really, and you can't help but be in a good mood when you wear this windbreaker.  I like the novelty.

Black & white graphic prints are just my go-to look, I suppose.

I was having so much fun trying to pose in this outfit in the studio, that Ladybird Mango, this sweet B&W puppy that I'm dog-sitting, kept coming up to play with me and got herself in the picture.  I think Ladybird's was a perfect match for my pattern play.  With kittens frisking on the print inside my jacket, I guess it makes perfect sense that a puppy would be frisking at my feet.

Now Wearing:
  • Vintage '80's reversible cotton windbreaker, SPCA Thrift Store
  • Silk Graphic print camisole, Target (clearance)
  • Joe's, Dark rinse denim straight leg jeans, Macy's
  • Graphic Tote, Forever 21
  • Gladiator heels, Target

Love that phrase: go-to look. I'm going to borrow that (and credit you, of course) when the timing is right. I don't know what my go-to look is.. at the moment I think it's very pale pastels. But probably black and beige or black and navy... yeah, they're my wintry go-to looks.

Thank you for your support, for posting that, and also for what you commented recently. I don't comment back enough but I wanted you to know how much I appreciate what you say, and the way you say it.

Have a lovely, lovely weekend. xo

Thanks, YOU! The jacket is a hoot, and I dig the vertical stripes on it. The puppy, sadly is back with her owner, my mamacita who just got home from a visit to Spain.
