Prints Matter | Skulls + Paisley Blues

by dietingfashion on March 10, 2012

Top: Zara Printed Pin Tuck Blouse (here, similar here and here)
Bottom: Zara Side Frill Skirt (here, similar here)
Shoes: Ann Taylor Perfect Leather Pumps (here, similar here)
Handbag: Chanel Wallet On Chain in Dark Red (borrowed), (similar here and here)
Jewelry: Jewelmint Bow Ring, Eternity Necklace

I never did like skulls. I love Alexander McQueen but couldn’t bring myself to buy his scarves due to the large printed skulls on it. To me skulls represent danger and poison. However, one look at the Zara blouse with the skull buttons made me laugh! The skull buttons are such a contrast to the vintage print of the blouse. Somehow the skulls made the blouse modern in a way.

The skirt with its paisley print is beautiful and when worn, makes me feel luscious! However the split opening is not classy when walking and a breeze lifts up my skirts. I tried pinning the opening together, but that created unattractive wrinkles in the silk.

So the debate continues. Should I keep the skirt that is really beautiful or return due to potential embarrassment fears?
