Block it & Rock it

The the other day I wore electric blue suede shoes with my black pencil skirt and black skinny jumper to work. My boss was horrified. He said - "You don't match!" I love colour blocking - although I have to admit I usually only mix 2 colours. A nice cherry red bag with a black outfit. But I love combos like parrot-green and pink, or electric blue and purple. I just attended a wedding and my friend looked fabulous in a full length scarlet red slip dress with electric blue shoes and leather gloves, and a purple jacket, paired with matte red lips. If you aren't quite as daring as Karen Elson & co below, try easing into it - pair a muted outfit with a pair of bright coloured shoes, a scarf, opaque stockings, or a hand-bag. NZ is finally starting to dip it's toes into colour - it's hard to find saturated brights amongst the racks of grey, black and dusty pink - but it's out there! This Winter I plan on scouring the stores ( - likely to be online) to add some more brights to my wardrobe. Here is some inspiration...
