Okay so a blouse in ginormous black & white lawn stripes isn't the most *I'llwearitforever* item, but really, who wants to wear anything forever? I do agree you shouldn't probably blow the whole budget on just frivolous items, but it's fashion and the reason we all love it so much is that each season, there's a boatload of fun new stuff to try, long for, lust after & buy. If you do go for a graphic-print, a good tip is that they usually look awesome paired with brights - red in a shade of lipstick, safety-orange, cobalt blue and the way I styled it here with yellow! And just enough gold to gild the lily 'cuz really, why wouldn't you?
