Pretty Paisley Prints

Hey!
So out of all prints, I must admit that one of my favorites is paisley. Psychadelic and swirly, this retro stamp can pop with lots of color, or play more demure with a subtle hue. Worn as a full on 'fit or an accent, celebrities know how to use the print to a fun, funky effect:
Nicole Richie is cute in a subtle paisley top with black shorts:
Dania Ramirez jumps to the other end of the color spectrum with a bright print top and matching popsicle orange bottoms...
Joy Bryant plays coy in a simple gray patterned dress with tights...
...and English actress Sara Jane Crawford goes for the goal with this black and white shirtdress...
Surprisingly men have taken more to this trend, with rappers like Lil Scrappy donning an all print vest with a more casual paisley bandana...
Fonzworth Bentley throwing on a richly colored scarf with a blazer and t-shirt...
And everyone from JD to Jay-Z wearing it as their accessory of choice with suits...
Official!

hmm I'm not sure if your liking the lil scrappy paisley or ridiculing it.

personally I think pasily should be done in small amounts. eg some ties, scarf, petit women. Not big amounts because you might just look like fireworks on the the fourth of july, aka big & all over the place.

Unless its fitted, and cut to accentuate your body, then it'll work for all sizes. [shrugs]
