Colour overload...

As a blogger, I constantly find myself making mental notes when I come across something that I want to share on here. So when I came across the 'Pop Your Colour' editorial in the March 2011 issue of Glamour, I knew it was destined to meet my scanner. After hungrily devouring the pages of colour blocked goodness, I've come to the conclusion that I totally need to stock up on brightly coloured skinny belts, clothes in neon and primary hues from the high street.

As much as I adore editorials and know that I would never ever be able to afford the clothes modeled, the prices that are sometimes printed alongside always shock me. Can you even imagine spending £520 on a pink cotton t-shirt?? I apologise if you've just choked on your tea and made a mess of your laptops, but yes that's one insane price point for the average joe (but I still love you Jil Sander!). Anyway, here are my favourites from the editorial, enjoy!

I should probably mention that a certain blogger does colour blocking incredibly well and the Jil Sander trews featured in the editorial remind me of this awesome post by Kit of Style Slicker. Amazing.

Still want more colour? These stunning tulips belong to my sister, Hailey who turned 22 recently. So pretty!

It's OK, I've recovered from the shock of the price of that t-shirt with some much needed cakey goodness. Phew.

  1. Happy birthday to your sister! I love color too, and heck no I would never pay those prices for a shirt. Maybe I splurge on shoes once in awhile... xoxo

  3. I love these colour combinations and I wish I was that smart with colour. I agree with you on the prices though, wow! Happy Birthday to your sister. She is about a month older than me. The flowers are so pretty.

  4. I love colour so much, I often wear smart office clothes to work but in crazy colours (orange tights, blue skirt, pink top). I often wonder if I just look like a crazy lady, but this makes me feel better! xx

  13. :O That is a LOT of money! I love colour though, I can't think of anything worse than wearing just black. And that cake looks yummy, is it homemade?

  14. At risk of sounding like my Dad...HOW MUCH for a tee?! Bloody hell!

  15. I'm so excited for all the pretty colours that are in shops now. I have never really felt it so strongly to be honest, but now I just really can't wait for all the energy, it's gonna be so refreshing! :) Happy birthday to Hailey! :)

  16. Love all the colour and can't wait to experiment with it this summer. The editorial is lush but 500 quid for a pink tshirt, well all I have to say to that is seriously?!?! I bought some red jeans the other day but I'm after more bright tops and maybe a blazer =)

  17. I love the editorial you've posted, but gosh the prices are ridiculous. I can understand paying a lot of money for something that looks a lot of money, like you know, a wedding dress, or a ballgown, or a crown or something, but on a t-shirt?! what's the point?!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I'm a colour block freak I love colour, I use to be a goth so I have made up for wearing black all right haha. I always love your magazine spreads, awww Happy birthday to your sister :) xxxxx

  46. That cake looks delicous. I hope your sister had a lovely day. I love all of the bright colours and I am always on the look out for new and interesting colour combos. These magazine editorials are definitely inspiration as I could never aford the clothes. I love themn anyway though

    ReplyDelete
  47. This is a great editorial and I certainly love the pops of vibrant colour however I am with you on the insane prices, I definitely couldn't afford to pay them. I tend to just look at editorials for inspiration on how to put certain looks together then find more price appropriate inspiration onthe high street.
    Thanks for your sweet comment.

  50. Haha, I am forever thinking the same thing when reading magazines. I'm always like "...$600 for a plain white t-shirt. WHO WOULD BUY THAT?!?! Do they know they can get five THOUSAND white t-shirts for that much???"

    Moving on -- I do love the color explosion. This spring, I want to dress like a paint factory/botanical garden explosion. So sick of black/blue/gray/plain! Long live color and pattern.

  51. I randomly bought Glamour the other day and when I saw that spread I meant crazy... I love it, I wear black and grey mostly and it made me so envious but also inspired to buy some brightly coloured pieces this spring ! P.s. That cake looks amazingg !!! Molly xo

    ReplyDelete
  52. Mmmmh cake :D

    Sorry got distracted momuntarily!

    Happy be;ated b'day to your sister :D

    I always think that the clothes that a lot of these magazines show are far too pricey for the average girl about town .... but at least they give us idea's and we can stock up on basics from the high street stores :D

    Now back to that cake .....

    ReplyDelete
  53. This is such a fantastic editorial, I love the trend, want to colour block asap
    I would be one happy girl if I had that much money to spend on a shirt, jeez!
