All Things Printed

When it comes to summer attire floral prints feel like a no-brainer, but what about other prints? Take for instance, abstract prints. Are you a fan? Although I personally admire a number of prints from afar (I love to mix prints😊), I notice that only certain prints consistently find a home in my wardrobe. They are florals, stripes, and dots. Why is that?  
Actually, I have no idea! LOL! I've mused over this again and again but I can't make heads or tails of it. 
Herein lies another reason why I really appreciate the services that Gwynnie Bee offers: I CAN TRY ANYTHING- ANY STYLE, BRAND, CUT, SIZE, AND PRINT - WITHOUT COMMITMENT! 
It's like a personal dressing room- with perks!
Take for instance the dress in today's post. I really like the color palette (pastels are all the rage), the print is cute, and the cut is one that I normally go for.
However, after spending a few days with it (I wore it twice), I realized that it isn't a item that I would like to purchase. Yes, I've enjoyed  our time together, but now it's time to say 'Farewell'. I'm sending it back in my next shipment and gearing up for something that I will like even better!
I mentioned previously that I am working with Gwynnie Bee this month to showcase a few stellar summer style options. I'm also sharing tidbits on how I decide which items to keep/purchase versus what I send back:

  • Today's dress is going back because something about it doesn't feel like "me"
  • Although it fits to a tee, I am not impressed with it, especially in comparison to my previous dress HERE

  1. I love the dress, the colors are right for the season and it fits you well. But, I understand all about the feelings when they are just not there. That is why I like to touch the fabrics and try on before I buy. Can we just take a moment for those shooze. . . .

    1. I too like to touch and feel items before purchasing! I like the fact that GB gives me that experience in my own home :) These shoes reign in a ton of compliments every single time I wear them (which is often) - thank you!!

  4. I love the dress, you look fabulous in it, but if it doesn't feel right I can totally understand you not wanting to keep it. You always find the best walls for your photos...I've got serious wall envy! Thanks for linking up to Fabulous Friday, hope you have a great weekend!
