fatshion 401 with missphit

My last OOTD blog post was about mixing textures and patterns to add interest to an outfit and I got an overwhelming response asking me to talk more about mixing patterns. I was on Tumblr the other day (my new obsession) and a girl...sorry I forgot who you were mama but, someone mentioned this website: www.missphit.com. Not a huge selection but some really cute pieces that aren't your run of the mill thing.

I knew I wanted to do a post about the site as I hadn't heard of it so I figured a few others might not have either but I also wanted to address mixing patterns since so many gals emailed me about it. Below are a few looks that when scrolling through the site, you might not think to put together but the key to mixing patterns is that they should complement each other not compete.

My favorite thing about Missphit is that most everything is under $50. Sizes 1x-3x (14-22). I ordered this incredible topper/jacket that I'd love to show you but it was the last one so the image is gone. I tried ordering it online and it said sold out so of course I called the 800# and there was one left in my size so they took my order over the phone...fantastic customer service. When it arrives, I'll do and OOTD post.
