Fab selection as always! I love patterns, even if I know many people find it hit or miss. The McQueen and Basso & Brooke are my favorite. I'm really liking the Julian Macdonald as well, though it's probably not something I"d wear myself.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

I'm really feeling the Tibi- all of these are fantastic, I don't wear prints often though- not sure why, how have you been? Any snow up your way yet?

I love patterned dresses. I really like the dress by Giambattista Valli and Stella McCartney. Both dresses look like something I would wear. Great post as always, Carrie.

Very pretty patterns. I usually like polka dot and florals the most. I'm also starting to like plaid so I like the blue and black one you had in this post.
