Can You Paint with all the Colours of the Wind....





























Ahhhh....Spring is in the air ...Only a couple more daYs ( okay maybe weeks:-/) and the "brighter" warmer weather comes our way and what better way to celebrate its arrival but by colouring up our closets....Remember Fashion 101- when all those do's and don'ts in Fashion are dished out? Well we are Breaking all the rules ...we ARE going to mix colours and patterns, we ARE going to mix silver and gold, We ARE going to wear Black and Brown, we are NOT going to match our shoes and bags or our shoes with our dresses.... Feeling Rebellious yet?? woooohooooo its liberating right!....So now we are in the rebellious spirit..... how about we experiment with mixing up our colours.....

One of the major trends for this spring is colour blocking. It was all over the runways during fashion week. I mean this trend has been around for a while now but designers really took time out this season to center most of the collection around colours. sooo COLOUR ME BRIGHT and bring on the rainbow.... These bright colours add a touch of fun, energy and personality to a look or outfit . It just looks like it'll add a glow to you and influence your mood ... The Gucci Spring collection is amazinggg and made such a splash and has become so popular ... its in every fashion magazine you open up and on every fashionable celebrity at every event. Colour blocking has taken its talents from the runway to street fashion and its making its wavesss....

Okay okay I get it you don't want to walk out of your house looking like a pack of skittles....but just like every other fashion trend its all about how you wear it. Stick to colours that you are comfortable with and compliment your skin tone and body shape, mix with complimentary colours or patterns, Also you can mix it up with the good ol' neutral basic colours like blacks, browns, greys, nude, white) (so like midnight blue w/ Black or a Pink w/ nude or brown)...

I realized the other day how oooo so boring my closet was, .... just the good ol' blacks and greys, with a plash of colours from my purse, shirts , sneakers or shoes.....One day I had conjured up the cutest look in my head, only to discover I could do nothing about it because my wardrobe lacked variety in colour...and that was when I cried to the fashion gods to save me from my boring ol' wardrobe and Bring some colour into my life. After that I decided I absolutely NEEDED colour to my closet....not necessarily extremely bright colours , or pastel colours but just more cool, fun rich colours.. to help transcend a certain outfit or look to chic & fun.....Plus its a fantastic excuse to have to go shopppinnnnggggg :)...... *bbmdancingface* .....So why don't you dear friends in fashion embark on this journey with me , and lets welcome the rainbow into our closets....soooo we to can be gone with the wind....heeehee ( get it? gone with the wind...colours of the wind...get it ? *pshhh* forget it:-P
lol >>>>>>Just go shop, its gonna be a bright season !!!!
