Who Says Color and Pattern Can't Combine For a Moving Look?

Some people are afraid of color. Some are afraid of pattern.
Suggest to either of these people that they try pairing the two together and the looks on their face might have you worried that the world is ending.
Truth is, pattern and color can work incredibly well together when paired properly. And we've put together a visual display to prove it.
Many thanks to our friends at Elements Boutique for sharing with us some great patterned pieces, to the wonderful people at Grange Hall for providing us with some fabulous jewelry, and, last but certainly not least, to the crazy talents of photographer Mindy Byrd for masterminding this shoot of both literally and figuratively moving images.
