The deficit of patterns in my wardrobe is something of an enigma. I have no aversion to prints – in fact I have made it an active goal to amass more. The most likely problem is that I am too particular when it comes to picking patterns. Spots and stripes are nice, but basic. Florals are lovely if the color, size and execution are just right, but if not they can come off looking cheap or cheesy.
The one print that has stolen my heart, lately and for always, is galaxy print. The infatuation was fueled by collections from Christopher Kane and Setareh Mohtarez, but the elevated price tags on these heavenly bodies were well beyond my reach.
I took advantage of the opportunity to hone my pattern play skills, layering the sheer shift over a diamond bodysuit. The effect was too subtle to earn me a medal in mixology, but I appreciated the added interest (and coverage).

If you’ve been watching the last few outfit posts closely, you may have noticed another very subtle addition – a scattering of pinkish-purple highlights. I was putting a new beauty trick to the test. I am beyond excited with the results – but more on that coming soon!
