LA CATRINA de LA Moda: color

Jul 9, 2010


What I Wore

Finally some color!  I usually am not one to embrace bright color.  I always tend to go for black, white, and the greys.  This spring and summer I like most of you have been really into pastel shades, and prints (especially polk-a-dots prints).  I found this blouse at a local fast fashion chain store.  I had promised myself that I was going to stop buying dark tones at least during the summer, but I couldn't help it.  I loved the shape of the top, it's short in the front and long in the back, oh yes and the price was great! ($15.99) I had to get it.  Note: this might be around the highest level of color you will see me wearing at once.  The shorts are super old, they used to be pants, they are one of the very few successful DIY projects I have completed.  ( I mentioned before that I am very bad with DIY projects).  So glad the weekend is here, hope you have an amazing weekend!  <3 ari

traducción: Al fin un poco de color! Por lo general no soy de los que se ponen colores brillantes. Yo siempre uso mucho el negro, blanco y los grises. Esta primavera y el verano los colores que realmente me han estado encantando son los tonos pasteles y los grabados (especialmente de bolitas). He encontre esta blusa en una tienda local. Me había prometido que iba a dejar de comprar tonos oscuros, al menos durante el verano, pero no pude evitarlo. Me encantó la forma de la blusa, es corta en el frente y larga en la espalda, oh sí, y el precio fue genial! ($ 15.99) la tuve que comprar. Nota: esto podría ser alrededor del nivel mas alto de color que me verás usar a la vez. Los pantalones cortos son super antiguos, son uno de los no muchos proyectos DIY que he completado. (He dicho antes que soy muy mala con proyectos de "DIY"). El fin de semana está aquí, espero que tengan un fin de semana increíble! <3 ari
