Gingham Khan

Gingham Khan: The Plaid That's Gonna Take Over the World
If you're afraid - don't do it. If you're doing it - don't be afraid!”Genghis Khan

Just like Genghis Khan, Gingham Khan is taking over the world. I mean what feels more fresh + wholesome than a pile-up of prints including this classic summertime plaid? Or what could be more edgy and fashion forward than these very same vanquishing hordes of gingham checks? After all, this IS black, white, and checkered, peeps, which is  very, very-FASH-ISH circa this Spring 2013. Oh-so au currant,  and I, my friends, am wearing it.

Oh, baby, this is some fan-tactical style right here. Black and white and gorgeous, thanks for sharing with Visible Monday.

Kristina said...

I'm loving that skirt. It's something I would wear...albeit I'd probably pair it with something a bit more safe...I'm boring like that.

Ofelia said...

You are right about the black and white for spring; I love how you adapted to your taste.

Shybiker said...

Very nice. Unusual and arresting.

I want to keep this so I can always think, "now what would Bella do? " She'd say more is more and add on some more baby!

Just love it. You can really rock this with your confident swagger.

I love Shybiker's arresting! Which includes the polka dot gloves that add the perfect touch to your black and white pattern mix. Your hair is looking particularly beautiful today.

Adrienne Shubin said...

A great retro and bold pattern mix, Bella!
Well done!

Another brilliant mix of patterns, you never cease to amaze me. Where O where did you find those polka dot vintage gloves? They are the icing on the cake for this ensemble.

The great thing about gingham is it never goes out of style. It's classic, even when you make it funkytastic as you've done here. I soooo covet those booties, Bella! ;-)
