Primary Color Influence

Maybe it's the kid in me but I can't stop noticing the pairing of primary colors. Red/Blue. Yellow/Blue. Red/Yellow. Red/Yellow/Blue.  I'm starting to sound like Dr. Seuss.  This primary color influence must be due to the inheritance of my thrifted yellow blouse (last seen here) and new most favorite thrift-additions, a pair of cobalt blue wide-leg pants and a pair of thrifted bright yellow satin strappy platform sandalsI wore the shirt and pants together for a friend's event and was pleasently surprised by the happy response. Here's teaser snapshots for now but I promise a full post with outfit details sooner than later.


Looks like I'm not the "primary" one who's been color-inspired (badum ching!). Here are a few snapshots by Tommy Ton (the infamous style photographer behind Jak&Jil) captured outside the Spring 2012 Menswear shows in Europe. Since I can't make it to Europe anytime soon I think instead I'll find a parked NY Yellow cab and casually plant myself in front of it wearing my new cobalt blue pants and a red top. Maybe then he'll notice how casually cool I look for the perfect photograph. Hopefully at least he notices before the driver is back on duty and needs his car.

  2. Cool! I really like how you take risks and take what other people are doing and reinterpret it for yourself. Really smart.

    And that last picture is great (the one with the three guys).
