Pretty In Blue

What's your favourite colour for clothing and accessories? Do you have one colour dominating your closet, or do you have a rainbow of colours in there?

I used to be very pink for a while. I'm sure the first thing that came to peoples mind was "pink". I even had pink hair for the longest time.

Lately I've been in love with blue. I was under the impression it didn't suit me though, thanks to trying on something blue for the first time when I just butchered my hair (I tried to cut my own bangs. Bad idea.). I looked like an idiot, so naturally nothing suited me, but I didn't realise it was the bad hair, not the colour.

New Outfit


Then I saw this top at H&M. I saw it every time I went shopping, and got depressed because "blue doesn't suit me!" every time I did. Until last week, when I decided to try it on and I realised blue does suit me!

Nautical goodies, here I come!

New Outfit

I spent all morning (and all of yesterday) taking new pictures for the shop. I took so many pictures my eyes boggled. It took forever, and to think of all the time I spent erasing the backgrounds of the old pictures earlier this year! I decided I didn't like the white pictures though. It looks great on some items, but on most it was just a real pain, if not impossible, to erase the background.

So I'm going for colour now. It sure gave my Etsy shop a cheerful look so far though, don't you think?

P.S. Excuse the wrinkles in my top. I don't like ironing ;)

  9. That looks so cute on you! Yay for adventures in color. :)

    I've been thinking of re-shooting all my picture as well. Everything looks over-done and the erased backgrounds are so painfully terrible now.

  10. Very cute top! I realized about a year ago that I did have a lot of different colors in my closet...but they were ALL solids. I had no patterns at all! So I had to make a constant effort to add a little spice to my closet. :)

    Your photos look great. I'm having so much trouble figuring out how to take a good pic of my pillows. Any advice?

  11. Love the shirt! I wear too much black. I own way to much black. I need more color.

  12. I have TOO many colours I think! Not that there can be such a thing, but it also means I don't always have things that match each other. Lots of brights and deep colours, patterns, etc. I'm also not much of a "just t-shirts" person, so it's hard to find something cute but casual.
    Also most of my stuff is from some kind of ethnic background. I'm a big thriftstore shopper! New Yorker and H&M are cool too though.

  17. Looks super cute on you! & I especially like the crinkled look. It's much more stylish than the boring old well ironed look!
