Summer Trends: Eclectic Print

Top - Express, thrifted
Belt - thrifted
Skirt - Miss Me, thrifted
Shoes - Liz Claiborne, thrifted
Yipes it is hot! Today is about Eclectic Prints. Runways have seen prints all over the spectrum, and today is about tossing on your favorite print. This twisted plaid is about as eclectic as I get. Someone suggested I pair it with white. The "white" in the skirt is really almost a khaki, but I think the white shoes helped balance it. The unfortunate thing is the elastic on the inner strap broke. Booo. I guess for $3 shoes they were more than worth it. I've worn them at least 15 times, 7 on the blog. (PPW: $3/15 = 20 cents per wear, not bad!)

I also accidentally washed this top with a red piece of clothing. The good news - I was able to get it white again. I'm glad because this is such a fun summer top. Plus all these items were thrifted so that makes this outfit cost under $20 total.

Fashion Challengeis chugging along full steam. We have tons of awesome participants you should check out. They're pretty amazing, so check 'em out!


  1. I remember when you got this skirt! It's so great with the hemline and I like it with the white top. It "suumerizes" it. Is that even a word?

    Gotta love a good thrifty outfit too. $20 and under! Yeah baby!

  2. Cute! I'm picturing myself wearing this with black boots with studs and buckles on them, looking all punk. It's a nice daydream...

  3. Really cute! I am always amazed by how you find items during your thrifting excursions! This was indeed a very unique eclectic print, something that isn't like what I've seen. Sorry to hear the elastic'll find a replacement I am sure.

  4. I've never seen a "twisted plaid" before -- it's cool! Looking at it makes me wonder if I'm having a hallucinagenic flashback. (Hey, back in the 1960s we did some wild stuff!)

  5. Ok, so didn't realize today's was eclectic 'print'. I thought it was just eclectic. So my outfit is a bit off then.
    I am loving your skirt and the ruffle top. so cute.

  6. That skirt is awesome! I love the fun breezy top paired with the tough belt. Very cute!

  7. @ Twills - Just wait til winter. ;D

  8. I love, love, LOVE that white top! Love it!

    Do you think you could have the shoes repaired?
