I have a deep fascination with art. From masterpieces of the old masters to contemporary street artists I get always inspired. Even from mundane smudge works created by simple overlapping paint strokes when done right makes an impact. So when I came across these separate pieces of smudged print garments, I got so inspired to wear them together. I'm like a walking smudged art:) I added a polka dotted shirt to create a visual breaker to the patterns but retaining a subversive slant to the look. The cardigan has a dramatic silhouette with its soft draped ruffle on the back. It also is beautifully spread open like a kite shape.

Aside from my interest in art, the smudge symbolically reminds me of the beauty in chaos.
