Sparks Fly

March 19, 2011
Now, this is me trying out one of the more popular trends for 2011, COLOR BLOCKING. Though many of you might know that my closet pretty much consists of blacks, whites and neutral colors. Today at styling class, one of my classmates, Bea gave a talk on the color wheel and color blocking, so after listening to that I decided to give it a shot. I know I have black in my outfit but trust me, I’m getting there, I will definitely invest in more colorful pieces. I promise! I tried to play around with some color, and like what I always say when I try out new things.. I hope I gave justice to the trend.

Top and skirt from Topshop, vintage belt, Parisian heels, American Apparel shades, +Ruckus necklace and Extreme Finds accessories. Btw, notice my bracelet? That was once a necklace, then a headband, then now a bracelet! HOW COOL IS THAT? Thanks again to Cha Sy for those awesome goodies!

For the record, I’m sorry if I took a lot of photos for this look, I just LOVE how all the colors seemed to POP in the photo. And if any of you noticed, I even brought out my lomo camera.. Just to give my outfit even more color. I think I should try this look out a little more often as well. It’s quite tricky though, but I’m always up for a challenge! 😉
