GWEN STEFANI - HARAJUKU GIRLS
With the traveling to and fro so much, outfit planning is now a crucial part of my packing routine. I pack the night before a trip - and it usually involves some selfies in the mirror sent to Jeff, Asher and Tad. Typically, Asher approves most of my experimental ideas, Jeff says, 'maybe add a chunky knit', and Tad just catcalls, which is assuring but offers no real constructive feedback.
I have been a bit bolder with some of my pattern pairings lately, to which my style panel has responded often with 'maybe that's #toodaretomix?' (#daretomix is Furbish's hashtag). What they're trying to convey about the outfit I've assembled is: I'm doing too much, and I am advised to do less.
HOWEVER, I am getting better at mixing prints on my person. I've been digging this La Double J skirt - and it gets along pleasingly with animal print. Here's one mix that made the cut, plus a few more combos for a foolproof pattern recipe.
