Blue Mood and Color Blocks

When I feel a bit down, there's nothing better than a colorful outfit to cheer me up. I don't usually mix prints, but I love to play with color blocks. The trend is quite popular right now, no matter what is your budget:

Hervé Léger


Aquascutum


DKNY


Pringle 1815



(all the above, available on NET-A-PORTER.com)




(all the above, from Forever21)

The dress I'm wearing today is actually a knock-off I bought last year for almost nothing. I don't usually buy knock-off items and this is not my favorite dress, but the colors are nice and it's an easy choice for hot summer days (and believe me, we're melting here today!!)

I don't like DK but that dress is lovely.
Sorry, what is a knock off outfit?

@ meg: I love that outfit too :-)

@ lori: a "knock off dress" is (or at least I intend it as) an inexpensive copy of a high priced/designer dress ;-)
