We Want More: Prints

We know we have already posted much about Prints and Patterns (Link here: https://afterthebloom.wordpress.com/2013/02/16/paradise-in-print/).

And let’s face it–they aren’t the NEWEST trend. But how could we stop loving those bodacious designs? B couldn’t even leave these statement-making material at home during her trip to Taiwan. See B’s personal take on wild leopard prints in funky turquoise.

Honestly, who cares if prints are no longer à la mode? We feed on them as staples.

Paradise in Print

It’s Chinese New Year!–and also time to ignite style envy in gatherings without frightening grandma or looking like a red packet. An alternative to good old red, gold and purple is PRINTS. The array of patterns lightens up the room and more importantly your mood. To maximise the effect, go for bold bright colors!

Remember, girls. Daddy said that we don’t need mini skirts and deep V tops to turn heads.

True. All you need is Prints.
