polkadots + stripes + Moschino

There was something extremely gaggish about the Moschino Spring 2011 collection that lead to its appeal.  An over-the-top collection of red/white/navy that you just have to swallow, keep moving, and hope the fourth of july police don't catch you stealing jello from your neighbors backyard pool party.  Don't let my sinicism kill your enthusiasm for stealing jello,  I was secretly enchanted by the thoughfulness of polka dots and stripes at play, two major trends to grace the runways from Marc Jacobs to Balenciaga.

I thrifted this entire outfit for less than $15 all in one haul from Goodwill - shoes, shirt, pants at $3.99 each. The wedges are Banana Republic and in brand new condition.  I think Im going to change out the skinny white laces for some thick stripe ribbon to get the full effect.  Moschino's giant drop Fleur de Lis earrings are just the right segue to introduce my new giant drop tortoise earrings by Angela Caputi.  These are the only things I paid full price.  I channeled the red/white polka dot turband with my thrifted red/white chain link Olivia Rosselli Roma silk scarf. The top is Nicola Petites and the high waisted trousers give my butt the illusion of a constant wedgie (fear not I do not actually have one).
