FBFF Questions and a Winner!

Carrie Bradshaw's closet. The epitome of wearing print and color and pulling it of, in my opinion!
     I decided to take the plunge and sign up for the Fashion Beauty Friend Friday. I have been watching some of my favorite blogs each week answer questions on these topics and they were so thought provoking and helpful in getting to know the blogger better, I decided to sign up and participate. So every Friday I will be answering the questions over here, if you want to answer them in the comments as well... go for it!

1. What color dominates your closet? I know this sounds so boring and run of the mill... but it is probably blacks and very dark neutrals. I love a dark grey, brown, black, or dark green and you can definitely see that in my wardrobe.

2. If money weren't an issue, how would you change the color emphasis in your closet? Well, well, well, if money wasn't an issue I probably wouldn't be afraid to buy those red jeans or a bright pink button up because if I only wore it once or twice a year, the fiscal part of it wouldn't really matter. When I shop, I try to buy a piece that can mix with a lot of different items I already have and therefor they are usually more on the plain and safe side.

3. What is your mantra about mixing colors? I normally will keep one half of the outfit pretty simple, like jeans or black pants, but then allow myself to go a little wild with a printed shirt and bright colored cardigan on the top half. I like to play it safe, which can sometimes be boring but this is what I love about the blog world. It has shown me how to be more confident and try things I never would have thought of trying in the first place.

4. For you, how do you incorporate color into your outfits? Color to me is a way of expressing the seasons through my clothes or my mood or feeling. I really love prints. I also really love texture or unexpected details. I might not "mix" too many colors onto my body at one time, but I might have one or two items on that pop and bring the outfit to life.

5. Which blogger(s) do you think do a good job of incorporating color into their wardrobe? Before I started blogging, I had never, ever, thought of wearing colored tights! I knew they existed, but I never thought of marching around with green legs... but now I can't wait to try it out. I picked this up from a lot of my favorite blogs (The Daybook, Kendi Everyday) who have their own personal style, but show this one little accessory really bringing their outfits together.

Congratulations Meg! Please get an e-mail sent over to me asap so we can get your information for your pretty new earrings!


  1. I would totally buy crazy colored pants with unlimited budget too. I have bought cheap pairs and they don't get worn because they look cheap. So I need the money to invest in classy pairs. Congrats to the winner.
