Bubblegum Brights

It's hard to tell from this picture but the lipstick is actually a bright orange color that's not too different from my nails!

Green button up- Thrifted/DIY, Tank and skirt- Zara, Platforms- Jeffrey Campbell, Jewelry- Laila Rowe

Decided to break with the usual LBD on Saturday and wore this out for my birthday instead (I feel like there must be a cartoon character that wears this color combination but I can't think of who... maybe if Meg from Family Guy borrowed Lois's shirt?).  This is also my interpretation of the spring color-blocking look (a la Prada and Gucci).  It's easy to overdo it on the color though... almost walked out the door wearing tall stacks of beaded rainbow-colored bracelets on each arm! Thankfully, the part of me that was turning one year older looked into the mirror and said "Whaaaatt? Do you think you're going to a rave or something?"  

Me: "I'm going out for sushi! I wish I was going to a rave..."
Older me: "You still don't understand what the heck dub step is, that's not your scene!"
Me: "Okayyy" [*Womp womp* Takes bracelets off]

In the end I was happy with a slightly more subdued look (Although now I know what I'd wear if tickets to Miami's Ultra Music Festival were to magically fall in my lap... pretty please?)

  2. Hi. I'm a stylist in LA and I'm totally obsessed with your blog. I'd love if you visited my new blog for multiple posts a day on all things fashion. I just moved to California after graduating back in south with a degree in visual merchandiser. In attempt to get my heel in the door, I've launched a site all about celebrity fashion and the trends that create it. Check out what Vanessa Hudgens was wearing when I ran into her last week and Olivia P's breaking news. I'd love the support. I'm following you, I hope you'll do the same. Thanks so much.
