I absolutely love colour. I often realise I am leaving the house wearing about 8 different colours on shoes,top, hat, skirt and jacket. So I find anything with a rainbow of colours extremely appealing. I have discovered a new fix in this department in the way of Chris Benz. I especially like the outfits on the redhead as I now have reddish hair.
My original and eternal love is Marimekko, but they drive me bonkers with their incredibly tiny images and refusal to answer emails requesting a lookbook. On the plus side, at least you know I’m not in any way being encouraged to write about them.
And finally, some inspiration from a brilliant online outfit community called Wardrobe Remix, which seems to specialise in pleasant, colourful ensembles and has tens of thousands of members.
What Would a Nerd Wear. I love this red colour with all the black and beige. It’s the perfect work outfit, if you have a work to go to (sigh).
Fraxinilucia. This is so adorable and needs to be copied by me hastily. I used to embrace the whole “slip-showing” look at school, inspired by Sarah from Heartbreak High. I also love any red/blue/white combo.
Calivintage. This is a really clever use of colour because I don’t think I would have looked at the brown skirt and seen its potential. Bows always give me joy and I love the subtle colour palette between the flat yellow and then brown and red.
