  • Juan Carlos Obando Resort 2012 Collection

    By Michal Upchurch on November 23, 2011
    Juan Carlos Obando is a designer who has an eye for knowing what looks perfect on a woman’s body. My heart skipped a beat when I saw his resort 2012 collection with the yards of colorful fabric flowing around each model’s frame, the elegance and sophistication of each piece and of course, the use of color-blocking. The designer has been […]
  • Vintage Vault of Color Blocking: Elle UK February 1986

    By Michal Upchurch on October 13, 2011
    Before this year’s hottest trend had a name model, Linda Evangelista, showed us how to color block in the Elle UK February 1986 magazine spread. The editorial entitled “Silk Flies High” features a younger Linda blowing in the wind, almost as if she was flying into a colorful abyss. She looks so comfortable and carefree. After viewing pictures like this, […]

  • How To Mix Prints and Patterns

    By Michal Upchurch on July 12, 2011
    I was flipping through several magazines (a constant hobby) and noticed several editorials on mixing patterns and prints. While I don’t want to offer an “how to” guide on the mixing of prints as I feel no one can do your personal style better than yourself, I would like to offer a couple of tips. To pull off mixing prints […]
  • Bianca Spender Spring/Summer 2011

    By SP on July 8, 2011
    Bianca Spender’s spring/summer 2011 collection is so fluid. I love the delicate looks, sheer fabric and subtle color blocking. The shapes and draping reminds me of ‘dance art’. Each piece is romantically constructed. Great.. my last two sentences just read like a ‘romance novel’. I should probably step away from the computer now. Enjoy.. xo  
  • Kerri Lee Miller for Harper’s Bazaar Turkey

    By Michal Upchurch on July 6, 2011
    Fell in love with this magazine spread in Harper’s Bazaar Turkey (July 2011 issue). Photographed by Koray Birand, Kerri Lee Miller looks absolutely stunning and elegant. The effortless use of color blocking, the jungle like scenery, the accessories (the gold necklace is simply divine) are all gorgeous. Adding this to the board for summer inspiration. Enjoy.. xo
  • Emilio Pucci Resort 2012

    By Michal Upchurch on July 1, 2011
    Emilio Pucci is becoming one of my favorite designers. The colors, the prints and crochet dresses in his resort collection makes me smile big. I know these top designers are not our everyday reality. But if anything, the collection below should serve as inspiration. A mood board of some sort. Don’t be afraid to wear bold prints and loud colors. […]
  • J.A. Christensen Maker Neon Ties

    By SP on June 22, 2011
    I want these J.A. Christensen Maker ties for myself. I have a collection of vintage ties, but I have been thinking about adding newer style to my wardrobe. These are perfect and unique. The ties are cut across the fabric’s width to give them a special look. In addition, this collection features square backs, vintage denim construction, 55 inches length […]
