ShopShari’s numbers have yelled my name since day one. Earlier this year, she released her capsule collection – CANVAS. The designer that was previously known for her bright prints and impeccable print mixing talent now had a line that was a collection of solids. SOLIDS! What was going on.

I’ve always found myself attracted to the floral on stripe combos so I figured that was the best way to play it safe while trying to have the courage to mix prints.
