Its time for Wednesday blog tag again! The fashion magazines are predicting that prints will be hot for summer…large florals, bold brushstrokes, graphic designs.

Lets talk prints!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PRINT OFFERED IN YOUR INVENTORY?
I love the vivid unusual colorway and atomic bursts in this polished cotton apron dress.
WHAT IS YOUR DEFINITION OF NOVELTY PRINT?
A novelty print has to be something other than your typical floral. Themes, cute, unusual or kitsch. Here is an example of a novelty print on a Hawaiian shirt we currently have in our inventory. Bold orange with pink beach hats, drums and tiki's.
Hard to pick just one. I do love this great vintage pin-up girl fabric recently sold on Ebay by kizmets, note how she's working in style with platform heels!
SIZE MATTERS….WHEN WEARING PRINTS, DO YOU PREFER BIG OR SMALL?
Esthetically I am drawn to bold colors and big prints, but it's a lot easier to wear a small print, especially if you are not tall.
COLOR OR BLACK AND WHITE? I love the pure graphic drama of deep black and white.
This Lanvin blouse is something that would be easy to wear.
Definitely Pucci! Absolutely distinctive. Often copied but never duplicated. I especially love the lingerie line he did with Formfit Rogers. Imagine wearing this wild girdle panty under your business suit! Courtesy of Renee-goodies on Ebay.
