It’s been one of those months. You know the kind; the let-me-slick-my-hair-back-because-it-looks-horrible-I-don’t-have-anything-to-wear-I-guess-I’ll-wear-black-every-single-day kind of months. I decided to step out of my lil’ woe is me mode and actually wear some color and a bit o’sparkle. Oh, and I decided to snap my photos outside of a Carniceria (a Mexican meat market).
I don’t recommend everyone’s brooches and doodads, but I am in love with Mrs. Darcy’s items. I was so pleased when she sent me this brooch; the myriad of colors and the smooth, soft velvety material makes this one of my favorite accessories. In fact, I pretty much based my entire outfit around the brooch. When I saw the brooch lying on my dresser I knew that I wanted to wear it and I had to find clothes to fit the brooch—and I did.
Last year sequins were everywhere. I’m a fan of shiny and sparkly, so I made quite a few sequined purchases. One of my much loved sequin purchases of late 2009/early 2010 happens to be a cashmere skirt with hand sewn sequins; this isn’t one of my cheaper purchases, but I justified the purchase because I knew that it would be hard for me to find a similar skirt elsewhere.
I paired the skirt with a shirt ($2) and tights ($3.50 and they are still on sale!) I picked up at Target, a Forever 21 jacket ($6), and Vince Camuto heels (gift from boyfriend).
Thanks to Mrs. Darcy, I was able to claim my color groove back on February 13, 2011.
How do you incorporate color into your wardrobe?
