If you know me well and (long) enough, you will know that I never had a thing for prints (I'm okay with classic geometry patterns) but never floral or simply just anything non-geometric. Since 2011, the no. of solid colored / black clothing started thinning in my wardrobe. Now it’s only about 30% of total hanging space. The rest are pretty much me admitting defeat to Spring Summer 2012 trends (brights, pastels, ombre, dip-dye, fantasy prints).
Yesterday I snatched myself a jaw-dropping (prabal gurung-inspired) mirror-effect printed tunic from Zara. The best part? It’s sheer. DIED. (will post photo within this week!)There’s a lot more but due to limited size availability my wallet was unburned. Also, special thanks to Nigel for getting me a Panther print-inspired top from his recent holiday!
How come the sudden love for prints? Well, this is not your average batik print or paisley maxi dress.
