Flashy Fancy Pants: COBALT

Finally Friday fun my sweet readers (not so much for me, I’m stuck at home in bee mode)! After seven colorful posts, we have reached the end of our Flashy Fancy Pants series. Without further ado and last but definitely not least (this was among one of the most used colors on the Fall 2011 runways), I give you the always electric, show-stopping and head-turning Cobalt blue.

AS SEEN IN: Yigal Azrouel, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Thakoon, Karen Walker


A flashy color like Cobalt calls for some fireceness and that’s exactly what I tried to achieve with this outfit! You are the judge, did I pull it off? My bottom of choice were this skinny trousers from ASOS, I love the fit and also the fact that they are perfect to show off a killer shoe. I have to be honest about the top, it was the inspiration for the whole ensemble. This tiger sweatshirt from Nasty Gal is as cool as a sweatshirt can get. No need to tuck it in, it just falls perfectly on top of the pants. For the shoes and to finish off that GRRR factor, Aldo leopard, pointy pumps which can be found at ASOS.

For the bag, let our jaws drop together and let’s drool all over our keyboards with another one of Mr. Alexander Wang’s masterpieces, the Rocco, now in Yellow Citrus (the Gollum inside me is desperate to hold it and scream “MY PRECIOUS!”). For accessories, one of my favorite watches (watches to me are like bracelets, that’s why the cheaper the better), Casio’s Gold pleated one. It’s retro, it’s fun and it’s gold! Ok, I am starting to feel possessed by Gollum. I added a knuckleduster spiked ring from Bling Deenie to keep on having fun with the whole ensemble. You can find the ring at Farfetch.com. And for the dark twist, Butter London’s Union Black Jack nail polish.

That’s a wrap everyone! We are dunzo with the bright pants! Now it’s time to practice!

I wish you a lovely weekend!

Sweet kisses…
