D and I are off on a week long vacation *insert happy dance here* to DC, Philly, and NYC for some quality one on one R&R (rest and relaxation). We have a huge list of places where we want to eat, shop, and visit. I promise to take lots of pictures!
Before D and I jetted off I got to spend the day with Carolyn of Fig Dreams Clothing & Designs. I met Carolyn through a mutual friend and I’ve envied her style ever since; she’s got an eye for vintage treasures and one of a kind design pieces. I asked Carolyn to help me create five completely different looks by remixing one little black dress (LBD). She graciously accepted and we got to spend an afternoon playing dress up, swapping thrifting stories, and styling the one piece of clothing in every women’s closet, the little black dress.
Little Black Dress – Look 1 “Color Blocking Cool”
Scarf: Forever 21, Jacket: Vintage Jeffrey Allen (via Downtown Threads)
LDB: Gap, Tights: The Sox Market, Peep Toes: Target
Remember how I said I like to ease into new trends, well this is me testing out the color blocking waters. As soon as Carolyn say these shoes she couldn’t wait to use them. I was wearing these blue tights under ripped jeans while Carolyn and I were pulling together these outfits. We decided that it would be fun to mix the neon green of the scarf with the bright blue tights.
Have you experimented with color blocking yet? Are you an early adopter when it comes to trends or do you ease into them like me?
