Yellow + Blue = Green?


Yellow + Blue = Green?, originally uploaded by strike.match.

Here it is... my experiment in yellow. I'm not necessarily a fan of yellow on me but I find this golden shade is better than most. It's a bit hard to 'tone down' though so I went a bit crazy with colour... I'm now officially half way through my challenges and am pleasantly surprised with what's come out of it. All that's left is neatness and capri pants... The neatness is going to be difficult but I'm planning on attacking it tomorrow.

It's been another day, another dollar on my end. I worked in a different location today, which meant that I didn't have to fight through the traffic on the bridge, delightful. At lunch, I went to an op shop and bought some boring basics - two woven black belts and some black shorts... Nothing too mindblowing but useful nonetheless.

I've been checking out the collections (boredom?) and I've actually found some things that I love... Karen Walker was perhaps a bit disappointing but I've fallen for Rachel Comey.

If you have pay tv, check out the finale of Project Runway Australia which is on tonight. Fingers crossed for Petrova Hammond.
If you don't have pay, well I guess you'll have to wait (like me) until some kind person uploads it on youtube.

I always think blue and yellow is a great combination.. Good luck with your neatness experiment, I wouldn't be able to do it I'm terribley messy and clumsy!

I love this outfit! I'm a big fan of yellow and wear it with pretty much all other colours.once you take the plunge you find that it's quite a versatile colour!

You look super extra cute and adorable today!

A neatness challenge would be entirely beyond me I think, I wish you lots of luck with that one!

Yellow is definitely not my favorite to wear either but I've become okay with orange so maybe I can also embrace yellow as well. And shift dresses look so nice on you!

Hi. I like your blog. It seems to be quite interesting. I have found Bluegreen theme here. I learned about the company from this great site www.pissedconsumer.com. To say the truth I should not have gone there after the numerous negative customers’ feed backs about the company. However, I did the rocky mistake and I regret this greatly.
