I think one of the fresher feeling trends for fall is the awesomeness that is baroque. Every September fashion magazine was sporting gilted goodness and I was tooootally drooling over this look. I guess I just think it’s pretty fabulous to walk around looking like a Fabregé Egg :D.
I’ve been keeping my eye out on ethical option for this trend for all of you when I stumbled on ASOS Africa’s A/W 2012 Collection.
I am loving the ASOS Africa A/W collection and it totally fits into the baroque trend! I also love that ASOS Africa is made by fair trade cooperative SOKO based in Kenya.
But in case you’re on a tighter budget I also thrifted some great baroque options for you under $22 :).
- Royal Blue Vintage blouse-$20
- Baroque Scarf-$12
- Baroque Circle Skirt-$20
- Needlepoint Embroidered Bag-$18
- Baroque Tee-$22
If you think that this bold bold pattern is a bit difficult to wear, I would have to beg to differ friend. I happened to thrift a baroque printed dress over the summer, so voilá baroque and me :D.
The baroque print actually works really nicely into my wardrobe! The boldness adds a lot of style to my basics and the gilded baroque print I think works as a great pop under neutral sweaters or blazers.
So what do you think friends?!? Diggin’ going baroque?
