Color Blocking is one of the Hottest Spring 2011 Looks!
Color Blocking? What is it? In “Fashion” terms, what does it mean? Often, Color Blocking is defined as large swatches of mixed but matching brights. Another definition can be “Bold color Combos”. I have opted for the second definition. After my pictures, I have included a video, from the Stylist which will help you figure this fun but slightly confusing trend.
The Chief Blonde thought it would be great to show you this look two ways with the same dress. One is a “Going to Church” look, the other is a “Wear Anywhere” casual look. Did you notice that even my Church shoes are color blocked Mary Janes? (In the first photo, the Chief Blonde is wearing a Color blocked dress from the Loft, Mary Janes from Target,vintage Italian purse ($75 from Rice and Bean Vintage) and a vintage chain.
Now some of these accessories are super cool so I wanted you to get a close look at some of them!
Wouldn’t you mistake me for Emma Pillsbury in these accessories? Oh, by the way have you seen this cool blog, What would Emma Pillsbury Wear? (She’s the cute redhead counselor on Glee played by actress Jayma Mays).
Can you even believe I got this gorgeous Brighton belt at the Salvation Army? I never ever go in without checking the belts! Somebody must have gotten really sick of their Brighton as there were 9 Brighton belts all just hanging there priced from $8-$12. I nearly fell over and died. Then I picked myself up off the ground and bought three of them! I’m blonde, not stupid. DUH!
