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. Years I say, so I know when it’s time to let go of something for awhile, just to make space for something new, the technicolor way of dressing.
The first official day of summer is June 20th 2012 and the past few days in New York City with temperatures over 80 degrees there will be no transition time just…. just nothing. I’m decided to start my Will Smith’s “Summertime” dance remix now. I’m doing it with small doses of pastels and neons, avoiding head-to-toe floral prints like it was the plague, overloading on the bangles so they feel like weights, rocking short like the boys, maxi skirts dragging like I’m walking the red carpet, and spikes to keep the bad ones three feet away. Those are just a few of my favorite things. Cue the music!
No pain no gain ladies, danity, cute and luxurious are no longer the words we use to describe our jewelry. Tough, bold, hardcore, a bit dangerous if you make any sudden movements and can injure to those who may want harm to you. Just a couple of ways we like to make jewelry statements these days. I’ve always been a fan of the extreme and wanted to purchase some of my very own, but while searching, I couldn’t help but notice how expensive these POWERFUL jewelry pieces were. We all know about the weapons used during wars costing millions of dollars, I guess that some of these designers decided that imitation not only in design, but in cost, is the best form of flattery.
