I hated chevron. And when I say ‘hated’ I mean, I would immediately skip past any post or article that extolled the virtues and glories of that God-awful design.
But one day, everything changed. While shopping for a new carryall bag, I fell in love with this little number from IZOD. First off, who knew that IZOD made handbags but let’s put a pin in that for a moment. I snapped off the tags (saving the pretty ones of course) and instantly made the bag a staple in my wardrobe. A few days later, I read one of those pretty tags I’d saved and discovered in the bag’s description that it was actually a chevron pattern. I hadn’t even noticed because the shading was so subtle but boom, there it was. Color me flabbergasted.
Then it dawned on me. The reason that I probably hated all the chevron I saw was because it was almost always in black and white or some other super contrasty palette. Or maybe it was a long forgotten childhood association with cheap gas from the Chevron station, I don’t know. But this subtle shading made all the difference in the world and now I even enjoy the more contrasty kind. Go figure. This bathroom is like heaven to me.
And I’m all in love with this skirt from Old Navy
Have you ever done a complete 180-degree design or style flip? Don’t tell me, you’ve always been a chevron lover and can’t believe it took me this long.
