Fuh-Get About It!

Music Playlist at MixPod.com

Today is Eclectic Print Day for the Summer Trends Challenge.   I have two minute confessions to make to you guys.  The first of which being that I have no effing clue what "eclectic print" is.  I love fashion and I love to look at clothes, but to be honest, I am clueless when it comes to these things.  I know the basics, but when it comes to labels or kinds of hems or things of that nature, I get all Homer Simpson faced.  I tried Google and it was no help, so I took this to mean some cool kind of print.  Someone help a sister out--what the holy guacamole is eclectic print?  Am I being completely stupid or what?

The second confession is that I don't give a rat's behind what anyone has to say today about these capris.  Remember this post?  Yep, these also cost me a whole dollah dollah bill yo.  I knew instantly they would be part of the love 'em or hate 'em (mostly hate 'em) hall of fame, but you know what?  I just don't care.  I couldn't pass up the cute print.  Granted, they would be much cuter as shorts (still working on figuring out that sewing machine I got for Mother's Day . . . ), but whatevs. 

The thing about wearing these capris, though, is you have to really own it.   I am serious.  You have to pull it off as if you are not on your way to the Bingo hall or clipping a million Wal-Greens coups to use on bunion ointment or dusting off your collection of porcelain cows.  You have to really man business. 

I kept the top simple to avoid the in yo face  mentality of the capris and went with a simple button down over a hooded tee, but added the pumps to not cut my already short stems off and bring it into a more sophisticated realm. 

Isn't it cute how my matching little lipstick ring fit in perfectly with all the hats and shoes and handbags on the print of these capris?  Ladies, sometimes you just have to take the expected criticism and say "Fuh-get about it!!!!!!"   By the by, I totally thought of this hilarious clip all day wearing these.  "You think anyone wants a roundhouse kick to the face while I'm wearing these bad boys?  FORGET ABOUT IT!"  LOL.

  1. eclectic some seem like an odd word to describe a print, but i'd say that pumps, tanks, and flowers is about as eclectic as a print can get!

  2. Thanks Lyddie! Yeah, I thought that I was missing something . . . maybe it's not just me!

  3. lol! i don't know what an electric print is either, but this looks like it could be it...

  4. What's better than a pair of capris with shoes and purses on it? And you totally owned this outfit. I love it.


  5. LOL thank you for understanding!

  6. Thank you so much! I really appreciate that!

  7. I really love the print on the capris, and girl I'm with you! I have no DANG idea what eclectic print means. I don't even know what eclectic really means when people try to use it to describe music or a certain type of people!...
