fabric


I am really trying to break out of my comfort zone with fabrics. This morning I went to Vogue fabrics and came home with this Anne Klein Watercolor Fabric. I was inspired by this anthropologie skirt and really wanted something with that 80's watercolor/pastel fabric look. I am really hoping that the pleats will help to deconstruct the fabric that I bought a little bit more. I feel like it is a bit of a gamble, but I kept on pulling myself away from the familiar and safe solid color linens and cotton twills that I love so much. Let's hope that I don't regret it.

  1. I think it will be darling. Pair it with a yellow cardigan layered over a white tee and some cute flats and it will be the perfect summer outfit!
