After wearing plaid twice this week and getting the Eyes of Judgmental Disapproval from Chris Cornell in yesterday's post, I knew that it was high time to give another print a whirl. Enter this dress, which I snagged from F21 a few weeks ago.
I initially had on a much wackier cardigan with this ensemble, but when I traipsed out of the closet wearing it, Boyfriend gave me something very similar to Cornell's Eyes of Judgmental Disapproval -- Boyfriend's Eyes of "I Know You Dress Kind of Wacky Sometimes But That's Pretty Wacky Even for You." And since Boyfriend is my boyfriend in real life and not my imaginary boyfriend like Chris Cornell, I actually heeded what his furrowed eyebrows indicated and changed into something a bit more sedated.
You and your eyes win this one, Boyfriend, but next time the wacky cardigan stays on. BwAhaHAhaHAh-- sorry, I got carried away there for a second.

It's not immediately obvious, but there are some darling little bows in the front of the dress. The perfect finishing detail!
Also, next week I am officially launching BREAK THE FASHION RULES week. Here is the schedule:
Monday - mixing patterns
Tuesday - taboo color combinations (navy/brown + black, red + pink, etc!)
Wednesday - spring colors and prints in the winter
Thursday - one color from head to toe
Friday - tights and sandals
I'll be wearing an outfit each day that breaks the aforementioned rules. If you'd like to participate, feel free to send in your outfit pictures over the weekend and next week and I'll post them up on here on the corresponding days. For each rule, please submit your picture at least one day before it is scheduled to go up so that I have enough time to get the post in order.
My email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Have fun, and have a great weekend!
