Mixing Lines – Colorblock & Stripes

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

I’m proud to say that for a little immigrant girl of color, I’ve never been happy to follow the rules.  When I was seven and should have been in the princess phase, I was unhappy with most of the princess stories that existed at the time.  So I decided to write my own story, full of heroines that fought battles and resolved conflicts, and asked all my girlfriends to play the roles.  Yes, a fairy tale with yellow women playing every part (not just the preferred dragon lady) – Hollywood would be so upset!

And thus it has been the same rebellion I carry over to fashion: I mix prints and lines, feminine and masculine, among the rules-breaking gamut.  This outfit is a little example of this: the feminine pencil skirt paired with the banker blue-stripes shirt, and stripes mixed with colorblock.  Maybe it makes no sense to most people, but in my world where girls make the rules: it does!
