Herringbone: Pretty mint petals

Leave a comment


I own the tiniest herringbone mini-skirt yet in my collection, and while its black and white pattern is very easy to pair colors with, I wanted to spice things up a bit with some color. This is the design I came up with. It felt very vintage and spring feeling, the look lasted around two weeks before the chipping lead to peeling, TISK, TISK, I know. If anyone has anti-peeling tips DIVULGE please!

While I have ODC tendencies towards neatness and order, I am a total creative basket case! (in a good way!) I have the every pressing urge to make EVERYTHING and put my own spin on something plain to make it PIZAZZ!
