Houndstooth and Blue Leopard Outfit Idea

Throwback Thursday !
A look from my archives :)
_______

Jueves de Recuerdo !
Un look sacado de mi baul lleno de archivos :)



I know that mixing patterns can go wrong, and that has happened to me a few times. I managed to take some pictures of them which I will post in the future. But this time I like the outcome. You can mix Houndstooth print with another print, and I would leave it there. This time I mixed it with a leopard print which has only two colors, blue & black. Both prints share black making it a cohesive look. Now, it's time to stop adding prints and just style it with a solid color like black. One more pop of color was red on the nails, lips, and if you can see well, there is a red stone on the ring.
Hope you like this idea.

Outfit Suitable for: Work/Office, Formal Dinner, Business Meetings, Theater-Opera.




What I wore:
- H&M skirt (2011)
- Jewelmint ring and bracelet
- Asos clutch bag (2010)
- Steve Madden pumps (2010)
- Lipstick, Flirt "21 Sizzle" (via Kohl's)
- Revlon nail polish, 120 Red Carpet (CVS store)
- Coat: Burlington Coat Factory, got it for $17.99
- Victoria's Secret Silk Leopard Blouse (last year, bought it on sale, original price $50, got it for $27.99 with a coupon, 2011)


what a great price right ^^ !

I hope you like this outfit idea, darlings 
Thank you for reading
