Printed, Purple, Pony and Practically Minimalist

If we hadn’t taken off the statement necklace and put on nude shoes, we’d admit that two graphic patterns, two animal prints and a pair of statement earrings is a little OTT. However, considering the aforementioned outfit revisions and the monochrome palette, you’ve got to agree that today’s look is practically minimalist. If you too believe it’s only “too much” if it scares a small child, then this post’s for you.

And while we tried to find a current version of our Custo Barcelona dress, there’s not an available style from the brand that’s like today’s oldie-but-goodie. The shopping guide below has a close alternative from another line that we think would be a welcome addition to any closet. But if you’re longing for a piece from the brand whose collections are best described as print parades, then check out this stunner currently available (and on serious sale) at Yoox. Love you, mean it.

    Perfection! if you had anything else patternwise on, we wouldn’t be able to appreciate the dress.

    • Meredith & Gwyneth says:

      Yes, there is definitely a point when it gets to be too much, and anything else would have crossed that line :)
      Thanks so much, Matilda!
