Wear a Bold Print


Yes, I went back a few days in the challenge, to before I really committed. 🙂

It’s probably pretty obvious that I’m not a real “print” person.  The main reason for that being that I love keeping things for years (duh! haha)  It’s a lot easier to wear a solid item that you’ve had for 5+ years than to pull out a print that you’ve worn a few times.  People are more likely to think “Didn’t I see you in that here, here, and HERE??”  So…I keep my prints to a minimum, and make them simple.  That said, when I saw this top on eBay, for a steal…I had to get it. 🙂Blog Vince Sweater CoreyLynnCalter Top Goldsign Jeans Converse-1 Blog Vince Sweater CoreyLynnCalter Top Goldsign Jeans Converse-2 Blog Vince Sweater CoreyLynnCalter Top Goldsign Jeans Converse-3And these Converse for $5??!!  Literally before I went to the thrift store I said.  “The only real thing I want is a pair of black Converse.”  DONE!  They were a little sketchy, but a run through the washer, and they are perfect!
