Outfit Idea for that Sale Item: 1960s Turquoise purse

This is the first item I listed for sale in my shop when I opened it up 6 weeks ago (it seems like so much longer!). Today, it's on sale for 20% just 24 hours.  I love the colors of this purse, the turquoise and gold with the dark blue change purse. Yum. 

Below is a potential outfit. It's sort of classic, but and preppier than I normally dress myself, but also much more daring than I dress. I wish I fearlessly mixed pattern.  How do you mix pattern in your wardrobe?

1960s faux reptile skin turquoise purse available at my store, Vint Condition Style, reg price $25

I completely love this purse, but I don't have anything it would go with. So sad...

i like to mix stripes with ditsy print florals, so you really hit the nail right on the head with this outfit. thanks for including my pumps! ♥

I think I need to go for the mix of prints. I confess to always pairing prints with neutrals and/or solids.

Meghan, I thought of you when I put this together.

And Erika, you will love that purse.
