You Pick A Color And I’ll Sing It For YouPosted: April 18, 2011
Aha! Finally I’m able to use this line from Athlete’s “Superhuman Touch” for a post title!
So, I’ve signed up for the Bloggers Do It Better challenge on Pretty Shiny Sparkly, where each week you’ll have an assignment (a trend, accessory, color, pattern, etc.) and do your own interpretation of it. The first assignment is “Color Blocking or Bold Colorful Stripe.” I decided to do color-blocking, because it’s a spring trend I’m still not so sure about, both in terms of technique as well as in “I don’t know if I like it” (despite having done it unintentionally before.) Anyway, this is what I come up with:
Cardigan: Target, remixed
Skinny: Urban Outfitters, remixed
Boots: Journee via Amazon.com, remixed
Necklace: from Italy (it’s Venetian glass), a few summers ago
This challenge is quite… um, challenging for me, because most of the examples of color blocking relies on a colorful bottom, and I have none – all of my pants/skirts are either dark or neutral, and so are my solid dresses. But it’s good, because it forces me to work with what I got.
And despite my clothes are all solid today, I still didn’t fail my “4 Elements” checklist!
