Most of the time when I mix patterns it is done subtly with a scarf, shoes, or a little layer of pattern peeking out. When I received this vest from Sammydress it was the perfect opportunity for something a little more bold. My husband got my a blue plaid vest for Christmas and I love it! Blue is such an easy color to pair with other colors. Red can be more difficult. I find red only pairs well with neutrals which makes it harder to justify adding red pieces to my closet...unless the price is right! Lumberjack plaid is such a great print so, while it was red and I had just gotten a plaid vest, this adorable vest was totally justifiable at less than $12!!

Overall, I was able to try three pieces from Sammydress this past week. If am very impressed with the prices and quality of the items. I feel the quality is comparable to Old Navy or Target items. Sizing runs small (this vest is a medium and I even been able to go with a large), but the sizing charts are helpful. The only drawback is the shipping. For all three pieces, totally $31 shipping was about $14 for reference. In my opinion it's still worth it, but something to keep in mind when adding all those items to your cart!

  1. I'm the same way with red! I tend to have more 'accent' pieces in red than clothes as I find it a very powerful colour to try pair other things with. I've been trying to break out of my comfort zone more and I have a pair of red skinny jeans that I like wearing that helps me come up with different combinations :)

    I like the subtle print mixing with the plaid vest and striped tee too! :)

  11. I actually don't have a lot of red in my wardrobe either, now that I think about it! This vest is so cute. The subtle striped shirt looks great under it.
