|Blooming Madly: Bella Q is back from vacay and ready to rumble!|
I'm back from my offline vacation, and I must say I missed all of you! I took nearly a 3 weeks off from blogging, and I feel like I've gained some much needed perspective. Here's the deal: I LOVE blogging but the past year or so, blogging has taken over my life, and it has been at the expense of REAL TIME, and REAL EXPERIENCES. To "keep up" with fashion trends and fashion blog posts, I had stopped reading books, most magazines and pretty much didn't explore any new subjects. Having taken some time off, I've realized how unbalanced this all is- and at the expense of losing some of my blog friends, I have come to the decision that in 2012 there is going to be less ONLINE and more OFFLINE. I still plan to blog, but my intention is now to share a rounder aspects of my life, not just the fashion side.
|Mixing patterns can be easily done is you play with prints in the same color family.|
I hope you are ok with that! You will most readily be welcome to share in my adventures, and I hope you will enjoy the ride.
This outfit was taken at FRINGE. As usual, I am print crazy, mixing paisley, leopard and floral prints. I'm wearing a new pair of leopard print platform shoes that I recently bought at Heart Boutique. I'm not sure how I feel about them- they are very high and hard to walk in. However, they are cute in a trendy sort of way and I can imagine all sorts of ways to style them. What do you think: should I return the shoes, or keep them?
