Lust-Haves: Paisley is the New Black.

Recently I've been watching some vintage Sex & the City - you know, way back in Season 1 when Carrie would stop mid scene and speak to the camera. Cringe. Besides the unnecessary "breaking down the fourth wall" film technique, the other thing I noticed was of course the clothes. It seems like people didn't like prints in the 90s. Block colours, black and fur were all the rage, and pattern was a word used strictly to describe Carrie's behaviour. 

Fast forward to Autumn 2012, and prints are everywhere. The latest trend? Paisley. No longer limited to royal regalia, quilts or rugs, paisley is seeping into every corner of fashion. And I am definitely not complaining.
