Mixing Prints and Patterns

What do you think about mixing different patterns? I normally stay true to the old rule of wearing only one print at a time. But seeing Olivia pairing pieces with different prints together makes me want to try it out. One of the rules is to make sure one colour repeats in several pieces of the outfit, while keeping the rest of the outfit (shoes,..) neutral. Do you think Olivia totally rocks this look or is it simply too busy?
Olivia is wearing the graffiti mini dress by Unique.

This is what Olivia wore at the launch of her collection for Roberta Freymann. You can buy these necklaces online here. She is wearing a dress by Julian J Smith, the 'jewelled jacket' from top shop (see this post) and the Mulberry Alexa clutch.

And here's another City girl that likes to wear statement necklaces.
(I just love this one)
