I wear Colour Blocking my way

I headed down to my local City Chic store (holla lovely Eastgardens ladies) to check out the Want To Play range in person, and, well, have a play. Firstly I want to say I love how the collection is presented in the store window, I just had to take a snap of it, its just so bright and fun. By the way, did you know you can win $500 by taking a photo of the word PINK as it flashes up on the plasmas in store and sending it in? More info here. After my play I came home with two lovely and very bright items that I just had to wear that night which coincidentally was date night with my hubby.

Bright yellow, blue and fuchsia make for the perfect colour blocked look, the matching graffiti background is a happy accident as we chanced upon the wall on our way out to dinner. My yellow trench was picked up at  a vintage store in Newtown a few weeks ago for $40 but has proved hard to style. Well not any longer as it really pops with my new City Chic blouse and skirt, I'm loving wearing all that colour.

I decided to tuck the blouse into the skirt, creating a more body con and sexy silhouette, but it does look good worn loose too. I belted with my favourite vintage belt, picked up at Camberwell Market in Melbourne years ago for under $10. The set of coloured bangles are from City Chic a few months ago. I would have preferred to wear heels but as I'm still getting over a knee injury and relegated to flats for a while I wore my blue suede creepers, which are very Prada (remember this blog post) and tie in nicely with the blue of the skirt.

My yellow straw clutch is a vintage number from Tokyo a few years ago, it pays to hold onto things like this as you never know when you might wear them again. I picked up the neon yellow nail polish in New York last year and the ring is an old favourite from City Chic.

So that is how I wore the Colour Block trend. Have you worn it yet? How have you styled it?
