Check in...Check out...

By Anupriya DG - June 15, 2011

Even though I've been following, liking & encouraging all the print mixing efforts & projects of my lovely fellow fashion bloggers from all over the world................I've not tried my hand at it yet! Maybe I'm not very sure of the results.......or maybe I'm just not ready for it yet........

But the other day, I did finally decide to take the first baby step towards print-mixing (though am not sure whether you'd call it that)............I geared up enough courage to go mono, putting together an outfit with different pieces patterned with checks - but of different sizes!

I was quite satisfied with the outcome...........what do you think???



This checked tunic was lying in the back of my wardrobe (unworn since it's purchase last Dec!) for quite some time........throughout the summer, I took it out several times & every time I felt the thick material, I pushed it back again! But the spurt of rains that morning & the cloudy weather finally gave me an opportunity to take this piece on it's first outing...


And yielding to my print-mixing urge, I pulled on my pair of micro-checked leggings, grabbed my funky checked bag & even threw in a checked bangle with the rest of the pile!!! :)
(I hope I didn't over-do it!)







I had to share a close-up of the earrings as they are one of my my most fav pairs! Accessorize sometimes really outdo themselves......don't they??? :))

Tunic: Only, thrifted
Leggings: Max, Bangalore
Bag: Mam's Diva, Kolkata
Shoes: Tresmode, Kolkata
Silver mirror-coated aviators: Aldo, Kolkata
Bangles: Assorted, Mumbai/Bangalore
Rose ring: Accessorize, Bangalore
Earrings: Accessorize, Bangalore


Well.............hope you all are having a great week going! It feels good being already half-way through the week.......3 more days to the weekend!!! Yippppiiieeeeee!!! :)

(Though for some of you luckier ones, it's just 2 days away!)

I'm outfit-posting after quite some time.........hope to share some more outfits soon!

Till then, take care lovelies!

Love & hugs,
Polka Princess

P.S.: Sorry for the demented snaps & weird angles.........sister not in a good mood, so took some crappy pictures! (That too after some seriously hysterical cajoling & convincing!!)

  6. Print mixing seems really scary at first- it took me a long time to decide to give it a go, and my first attempt was just stripes on stripes! But once you've done it once, it's easy to move on and grow from there. I think this is a fabulous first attempt- love thet buffalo check dress :)

  10. like the checked shirt, its perfect for the monsoons!!....the pairing with leggings look nice, however shoes could have been different as they look too overpowering!!!(but thats my personal opinion!!)
    the bag looks good with the outfit and it doesnt look overdone...
