Fox Pass

I already knew that mixing patterns was a faux pas, but today I learned that one shouldn’t mix brown and navy, either. Who knew?


Blouse, Forever 21. Skirt, Worthington (thrifted). Boots and bag, Nine West. Coat, Lilli Ann. Necklace, vintage. Brass bangle, World Market. Charm bracelet, Just 2 Friends (gifted).

No no? Pishaw. I wonder if the people who say this ever wear brown with their denim...
I think it looks quite nice on you!

I actually think you look adorable!

Your hair looks lovely. So shiny and the color is gorgeous.

Great outfit! Navy and brown being a no-no is news to me but you definitely prove that these colors work well together!

I need a pair of boots like those in my collection!

You have got to be kidding...
you are going to have to change those rules.

You don't seem like the person to listen to fashion rules, you always create your own! It is so much more interesting that way!

The animated foto has made my day!!!

Sheila said...

And of course, that's total BS. :)

Honestly, are there any colours that DON'T go together? I think you could probably make an awesome outfit out of any colours!

God, I love that coat.

Fabulous coat! And I love your ensemble! Phooey to the fossilized style maven(s) who enacted the no navy and brown, and no pattern mixing rules. He or she is a chucklehead.
Keep on remixin' those rules!

I had never heard that one. And, while I am not a big wearer of brown, I always like the combination.

And your little animated pic made me laugh, which I needed today. Thumbs up. :)

The only people who say pattern mixing is verboten are those who can't do it. And you, my dear, most definitely can. My favorite mixes are floral, gingham and stripes, and leopard with polka dots. And no navy and brown? Never even heard that one before, but black and brown and navy and brown (two other supposed no-nos) also look great, so why not navy and brown? As you also ably prove.

It took me all of 2 seconds to "get" the Fox Pass title and start giggling uncontrollably. Then the gif officially cracked me up!
