As you know, I rarely wear pattern. However, when I do, I have the urge to mix patterns. Here I am wearing one of my favorite pattern mixes, stripes and dots.
So what about it? And why the title?
Well, when I was in high school, I once was very bored in my math class. The teacher explained for the 10th time how to calculate the area (=Pi times radius times radius where Pi~3.1415926…) and circumference (=Pi times diameter = Pi times 2 times radius) of a circle and how radius and diameter relate to each other. In front of me were two other gals, one was wearing a blouse with white stripes, the other a blouse with white dots. I started to count the numbers of dots per 4 inch times 4 inch (about 10cm x 10 cm) area and estimated the radius of the dots to calculate the white area. I multiplied the area with the number of dots. Then I counted the white stripes for the same area. I estimated the width of the white stripes and again calculated the white area for the same area. When I compared the results I found that the gals probably wore the same amount of white. When I later told them they couldn’t believe it. Do you want to do the math for my outfit? 😉
