Colour-Blends: A Pail of Inspiration

     Lanvin- Spring 2012 Ad campaign (Source)

If you follow me on Twitter then you're probably aware that I've been heavily into orange, and yellow colours quite a bit recently. Honestly, I actually adore a multitude of colours and their variance in shades, however I wanted to provide you with a dash of inspiration for several other colours that I'm looking forward to wear. 

Each year and season we [the stylishly flavoured] get anxious for another environment transformation as well as changes within our wardrobe, thanks to the effects of our surrounding climate. And that's what makes it fun! The constant evolution of art celebrated on our bodies. What hues will I be expressing? For starters these ... and here's a special taste in fashion, home and everything in-between ...

I have been delving into the archives of my closets feeling the need to bring back a few items worn previously, because you know clothes are meant to be worn more than once!  From colours resembling candy to blinding brights with an almost intensifying heat index there's something for everyone to enjoy and wear in their own way.

Pretty, delicate, feminine, and airy. What's there not to love? A candy-coated embrace with soft fabrics brushing against your skin, and the setting: a perfect climate.

Oh yes, I almost forgot, haven't you heard ... lace isn't going anywhere! It's a good thing, since I have loads of it. You know I'd wear it regardless.
