They say geometric prints are the “new” thing. I say they copied my mom!

It’s funny how history and fashion repeats itself. But, what’s even more humorous is when designers call it “new”.

We’ve been seeing a lot of clean lines and graphic prints in the fashion world, and geometric patterns are making a come back. Notice how I said “come back.”

The first pic is a dress by Ann Betty. I’m loving the strong, bold pattern in a sweet sheath style.

The second pic is from a photo shoot on the Cult of Style blog. It’s so dramatic and really drives the geometric message home.

The third pic is from Marc Jacobs 2013-2014 runway show.

And the last pic is my mom and dad in our Anaheim house in 1971.

My mom took her style seriously and I can honestly look back and say, “Now I know why I am the way I am.”  I was constantly surrounded by design, I mean look at the velvet picture on the fireplace.

Instead of saying geometric prints are  a “new” look, I’m going to say it’s a 1971, Anaheim, California inspiration.

If only my mom would’ve kept all of her clothes, I would be able to predict the trends for ever. For now, I’ll just keep digging through all of our old family pictures. Maybe I’ll find another “new” thing.
