dots & dashes







This juxtaposition was one day apart: day after I wore dots with checks, saw this girl at Gail's Artisan, which I've only just discovered was downstairs at Somerset House - specifically for fashion week! Great minds think alike, I guess.

I wore this as an homage to my mom, who only gave me one rule, growing up: you can't mix prints, because they clash. But as both my parents always taught me: creativity is a life force. We must always keep pushing our own boundaries, and breaking our own rules.

Thank you - BLESS YOU - to Jennifer, aka Style East - Otherwise I'd have no record I was even at fashion week.

Must dash. Have a lovely day, kittens! xoxo

Jill, love it! I've bever thought about mixing polka dots and little squares, but the effect is quirky and stylish at the same time!

Oh, I love this -- your polka dots and checks mixing with the pixelated background and other geometries!

And I forgot to mention in my other comment how excited I was when you mentioned you are writing a novel!!! Will you be sharing snippets from it, like teasers, on your blog?
