GLOSSARY


CLASSIC 

a print that truly stands the test of time, no matter the season or trend. 


NEUTRAL

these prints go with everything. literally any print or non-printed item. they pretty much have magical powers. so if you're skeptical about prints, start here my friend!


NOVELTY

aka those really cute themed prints.  they're wonderfully whimsical, and sometimes with a sense of humor, i like using these prints more sparingly. sometimes...rules are meant to be broken of course.


TRENDING

super fresh prints. you've got to gotta have it riiight now. usually a type of novelty print, or a creative spin on a classic. these are not for everyone and may not stand the test of time, but they are inspired.
