Elections & missmatching

Despite the fact that this is a fashion blog, I still believe it is essential to bring up election day! First off, thank god it is Obama. As a democrat, this is exciting and about time! As for what he represents, he does not represent all "minorities" (just being African American does not constitute as representing all Asians, Latinos, women, homosexual population and Native americans) but he does give hope for all groups of people who are being oppressed in this country today. A minority woman, myself, his accomplish gives me great pride. Thank you America for coming to your senses. Because of Obama I won't be using my dual citizenship anytime soon!

As for California props, I must say we did put a good fight against prop 8 but alas, this country is still not ready yet. I voted against 8 because love is love. To deny someone love and to control their PERSONAL life that has nothing to do with anyone else is unacceptable to me. Typical, really. But it was a close fight. Nevertheless, congrats on no on Prop 4 ( I interned with Planned parenthood on that) and yes on 1, 2, &3!

ANYWAYS...on to fashion!

As you can tell, matching is very out. As it should have been a long time ago. To match a little is acceptable as long as it is not overdone. Unfortunately, people tend to go too far and it becomes ridiculous. This is a guide to miss-matching in a fashionable sense!

Want to miss-match in a classy way? Start with a base of neutrals (white/black/beige/Grey) but add on some wacky colors for a bang (pants, bangle, bag). Match a little with some but do not be afraid to be daring!

Pick three contrasting colors and here you go! When you are adventurous like this, make sure not to over do it and to add pieces that are less powerful (i.e. vest and jacket).

Miss-Match Daring

Another way to miss-match is to pick one piece and have separate aspects that match with it. My "one piece" was the skirt with red and blue. Then a threw in the mutard tights but toned it down with the black shirt and the Grey cardigan.

Try it out if you wish and tell me how it goes! That's that!
