BARNEY


 



Skirt: Alice + Olivia/ Top: Averly/ Shoes: Zara/ Bag & Belt: H&M/ Bracelets: Betsey Johnson


I have finally decided to come out of the fashion closet and cater to all three of my blog followers! For my very first post, I decided to display my awesomesauce color blocking skills. I know that it is fall already, and these colours may not necessarily be appropriate for fall, but I'm going to prolong summer for as long as I possibly can. Given that I have 10 months of winter coming ahead of me, I'm sure I'll have plenty of time to display fall fashion. In the mean time, I present you... *drumroll*.... Barney! (after an intense weight loss regime and multiple rhinoplasty procedures). Now, if you have no idea what I'm talking about, then your childhood was clearly robbed of a very flamboyant dinosaur (it's also probably why you turned out to be straight). I fell in love with this beautiful purple pleated skirt from Alice + Oivia, who happens to be one of my favorite designers, which I can only afford on very rare occasions. I did not want to be obvious and pair the skirt with a pink top, so I was stumped. Then suddenly, the light bulb came on. Yes, the inspiration to put green and purple together came from Barney! I accentuated the outfit with a pink belt because, well, purple and pink are siamese twins. The red/purple shoes were more of an after thought, but I think this was Zara's greatest summer creation that can practically be worn with any outfit! I wore this outfit during my recent trip to Montreal, so this classifies as travel wear for me smile I want to say that comfort should be the most important aspect of fashion, but we all know I'd be lying.

  1. If Barney was as fashionable as this, I'd definitely tune in to PBS more often. I love that you draw inspiration from the not so beautiful in life and make it into something epic. I mean Barney is a dinosaur from our imagination, so I guess your imagination just saw him as a lot more beautiful and a lot less chub chub. ;)
