Summer will be over soon. It is time for adding some fall fashion to your wardrobe!

Abstract print is one of the strongest flavors of the new season. While last year floral abstracts made patchy niches in the summer and fall fashion, this year the prints have become bigger, bolder and more individualistic.

There is no best way to wear these prints. This trend is all about experimentation. You can wear it in softer colors and smooth curves, peppy fluorescents and whirly patterns OR go fierce by mixing it with animal prints and geometrical shapes.
After all,  fashion is art. Every individual is an artist and there should not be any right or wrong when it comes to art!

I wore this abstract print shift dress for an afternoon tea at the Heathman Hotel, Portland. The Tea Court is small, snug and beautiful with a cozy fireplace and piano. Their tea menu is amazing and so are the tea cakes, cupcakes, scones, sandwiches, croissants, marshmallows and everything else on that tempting cake stand. It was also really thoughtful of them to provide equally delicious and innovative alternatives to some non-vegetarian dishes (e.g., they replaced smoked salmon in the profitroles with tangy raw mango pulp). Needless to say, culinary enthusiasts that we are, I and my husband had a great time!

    1. Thanks a lot Shea! I love fall fashion is much classier and usually quirkier than spring/summer fashion. ;-)
