goodies : geometric patterns (UPDATED)

I'm not embarrassed to admit it, I'm usually the last one to catch on to a trend. Maybe that would help explain my "uncoolness" factor in high school. { And if you have no idea what I'm talking about, go read yesterday's post. ;) } I was against skinny jeans when I first saw them. I thought animal prints were tacky. Okay, so those can still be tacky if done wrong. And I wasn't crazy about geometric patterns. Maybe it was the terrible flashback to geometry class. Okay not really, I actually didn't mind geometry too much. (But don't tell my uncle! haha) But more likely, I just thought it looked to mod-hipster for me. But now, I have to say, the geometric patterns are growing on me. I love the pattern in them, I've always been a girl for patterns. I also love that sometimes there are no patterns. What can I say, I'm neither right-brain nor left-brain. I'm straight-down-the-middle-brain. I love the variations in color palettes. How they can be soft and pastel, or bold and bright, or even a combination of the two. There's a uniqueness to them. Almost like laying on your back on a summer day and picking shapes out of fluffy white clouds. 



Whatever it is about them, right now, I'm in to them.

And here are some most lovely finds from Etsy, that I can't stop looking at:

This one totally makes me think of a fluffy white cloud. I keep staring at it trying to find as many animals in it as I can.

  7. The 60's did have geometric patterns also, maybe mostly Modrian-like.

    I am finding that the art of today is truly so much more imaginative than back then. Of course, not speaking of the "masters" but we, as artisans can be so much more creative.

    You really do have an eye for colors, patterns and fashion.

  9. I am definitely one of the last ones to get the trends too! And sometimes by the time I want to try it out, the trend is over! I usually still wear whatever it is though, even if its gone "out of style"!

    Definitely with ya on the middle-brain thing too! I kinda just do what I want, and like what I like! Have a great weekend girl! :)
