mix and match suiting:: part one

while shopping do you ever fall head over heels in love with a pattern, but the pieces come in a sad little set?  here's a quick tip::  for interest, and an easy way to stretch your dollar… break the pieces up!  i snagged this dark floral tulip suit at a local vintage shop {for only $14},  separated the pieces, and styled two totally different looks for some inspiration to get you started.
