reestablishing a relationship with things as things

This month Everybody Everywear’s theme is pattern mixing. I love love this look on my pinterest board. Though I don’t think I could pulled off that look except at office Halloween party. So for today I donned the usual striped and floral combo. Upon scrutinizing the snapshot, I realized my ensemble coordinates with my home decor. Ha..ha..ha..

Perhaps a passage from Why Read the Classics? by Italo Calvino describes the essence of the mix and match style:

Taking the most humble object, the most everyday action, and trying to consider it afresh, abandoning every habit of perception, and describing it without any verbal mechanism that has been worn by use. And all this, not for some reason extraneous to the fact in itself (for, say, symbolism, ideology or aesthetics), but solely in order to reestablish a relationship with things as things.
