girl gone wild

…with colors! (is it M.D.N.A or Madonna?).  Don’t know anymore, but I do know that color blocking has been one of the funnest trends to try.  A week back, Derek (http://fromshoestospecs.blogspot.com) and I embarked on a photo-shoot with Colin, a super talented student with mad camera skills.

I went for a bold approach (obviously) and I loved the end result.  I kept it casual by adding the trusted jean jacket, a serious wardrobe staple.  Color blocking is one of the trickiest trends to pull off because it has to be cohesive.  Try combining soft colors within the same color wheel first, for example mint with navy, then progress into diva territory.  Go for yellow and purple, orange and pink- be fun and fearless!

With the heat creeping up on us rather steadily, I suggest the outfits below for a summer friendly version.

Four Ways on a Friday-The T-Shirt Dress

Four Ways on a Friday
Since I am not allowed to shop, this four ways on a friday was a really good form of therapy for me.  For a while I have been thinking about buying this T by Alexander Wang t-shirt dress.  It’s a versatile item, and even though its price isn’t super cheap, I feel like my cost per wear would make up for it :]
Enjoy the weekend!
