Coveted Deeply

Coveted Deeply[1] This looks like a jewelry box I’d keep on my vanity or chest of drawers but it’s actually a clutch purse from Poupee Couture. I love its duality, the black box on gold lattice work is utterly gorgeous. I spied something like this in the BCBG Max Azria Fall Winter 2011 show, but this one I can have now if my heart desires.

[2] This is called a tortoise decanter, for the true wine connoisseur in me. It’s more than just that piece you pull out when company’s over, it’s the kind of piece you want to put on display because it’s so gorgeous. This Steuben creation is a work of art.

[3] I can picture Christina Hendricks wearing this Vivienne Westwood Anglomania Red Solid Sunday top on the set of Mad Men. It’s vintage sixties feel is timeless and I’d love to dress it up by mixing it with other decades and creating a modern perspective. I want to wear it as an open vest over a slouchy vintage tee, a pair of skinny jeans and canvas oxfords.

[4] The splashes of color on this Proenza Schouler mini make me all kinds of happy. I’m a color fanatic and the frilly texture paired with the green and blue decidedly non-girly colors makes it even more my cup of tea.

[5] This Rachel Roy ring is blue burnished metal enrobed by a snake, it’s ultra edgy, but what I find a little hilarious is the one red eye, one clear. The texture and dimensions of this ring make it a phenomenal covet worthy piece that I can’t get out of my head.

Eye on Style: Color Blocking

Eye on Style: Color Blocking

It’s a trend that won’t die, and I’m surely not about to try to squash it. While much of the fashion world has been enthralled with the absence of color that is black, we’re more adept to enjoy the merits of the full spectrum of the color wheel, even if that means making outrageous color combinations that work even though we can’t understand why. Spring is going to play with our understanding of color blocking and we couldn’t be more happy. From Gucci’s use of bold solid colors that pair together for the ultimate indulgence in rich color to the likes of Poupee Couture’s interpretation of color blocking, this spring and summer isn’t just about color, it’s about embracing it in a different way.

From Top Left to Bottom Right:

[1] Color Blocking According to Gucci – intense hues in the form of separates that pair together so strikingly well, no neutrals are necessary to offset their intensity. Gucci’s color by blocks is a shawl collar jacket in ‘Beetrot’; $2,150.00, a royal purple strapless top; $795.00, an emerald green low rise pants; $875.00, wide adjustable tassel belt; $990.00, all available for pre-order Saks Fifth Avenue.

[2] Amrita Singh infuses color blocking into simple and delicate thread bangles, they’re available on Couture Candy right now for 15% off of the original price $100.00.

[3] Fendi’s tri color belt (retail: $460.00) mixes teal and olive, and it’s the perfect piece to add to any ensemble channeling Christina Hendricks.

[4] Brian Atwood color blocked a platform slingback, with violet, kelly green, and turquoise suede taking color blocking to a new level of chic retailing for $460.00.

[5] Poupée Couture puts a little metallic gold edge on the orange in this color blocked fuchsia and orange crystal shoulder bag, it’s available at Boticca.com for $360.00.
