The actual man behind the color blending in these photos is fashion photographer Meinke Klein. He compliments Dutch fashion designer Peet Dullaert‘s Fall 2012 collection of clean lines, forward-looking silhouettes, and a rich bold color palette with color-blocked, minimalistic backdrops that blended in perfectly with each piece photographed for the ad campaign.

Makeup and I are still in the dating phrase of our relationship, but the last few months things have been getting pretty serious with me displaying my affection on my face using brighter colors on my lips and eyes, and not being afraid to have my face glow with the right products with the right outfit on the right occasion. From the looks of things, makeup will be joining fashion and I in creative threesomes collaborations more often!
So when one of my favorite beauty websites, Birchbox.com asked me to be a guest blogger for a week, I couldn’t think of a better place to put this budding relationship on display for all to see.
If you’re just about to board onto the color-blocking train or have been working your way to those train steps, it would be best if you throw yourself off now or let this one go by. Cause this trend, has gone into overkill territory like the florals all day everyday trend.
I of all people shouldn’t be saying such things, after all blocking those colors up down and all around has been a styling favorite of mine for years now.

The first time I rocked a pleated garment was at the age of five. The fabric was a heavy cotton-polyester blend; the style, overalls; and the place, primary school in Trinidad and Tobago. I rocked the pleats for about seven years straight after my first time, so my relationship with the folds wasn’t one that I have fond memories of. Time heals all wounds, scars and my love hate history with extra fabric. I’ve found some ways to help me bring pleats back into my life so the second time around, pleats can give me happy memories. Let’s see if these ideas might help. Continue reading “Pleated Its Way Back Into My Life.” »
Not being model height nor fitting into the petite category has some disadvantages, especially if you work in fashion. They don’t call it sample sale for nothing. This comes into play sometimes when I want to wear my favorite length in skirts and dresses, the midi. I don’t want to always wear a pair of flats or outrageously high heels or platforms with every midi dress or skirt I plan on wearing this summer. I did have this question pop up a couple of time already, and since it’s one I can relate to all to well, just wanted to share some options, and styling tips that may help those inquiring minds.
Simon Spurr is his name, the man behind the label was his game, as of two weeks ago. The CFDA nominee for menswear designer of the year, left his label without reasons for his exit, but I’m hoping that it must be something that will have us applauding at the end of it all, especially since his S/S 12 collection hit the mark on several trends for menswear this year.
Ohh the drama of fashion we love, let’s hope Simon’s departure will result in more than just menswear, next time he sends something down the runway. Wo, wom, women… finish that for me.
