Bright Blue Love

vintage blue shirt-dress all buttoned up, without belt

beautiful collar and matching belt
Green is my favorite color, and always will be.  However, bright blue is in close second.  I've been obsessively buying everything bright blue lately.  To update this vintage dress (above) I changed its regular hem into chic asymmetric one.  Do you like it?  I wore it last October for Oleg Timchenko's exhibihion in New York (see below).  Sorry, my NY picture are blurry.  I accessorized with gold and tribal:  golden purse, golden choker my DIY hardware bracelet, and my DIY skull earrings

New York, Oleg Timchenko's exhibition; with new friend Victoria
with friends Inna and Thea (the organizers of this fun event and the curators of InArtGallery)
I'm in the middle :)
You can view more photos from this exhibition HERE.  The same link will also allow you to purchase Oleg's works. 
blue+bright tribal=LOVE (source not sure?)
Here are my other blue purchases.  Also vintage, also modernized with accessories.

How about you?  Do you like blue?  How do you style it?

  1. Gorgeous colors...i love that first dress. The color is just vibrant and youthful!

  2. Great colour!

  3. i am all about the brights right now

  4. I've been looking for anything in this color lately, and I love how you did the asymmetrical hem on the first dress. I bought a skirt at Goodwill to do that do but I haven't had the nerve to take the scissors to it yet :)

    1. Go for it, Sara! I would not hesitate especially with your sewing skills! If you're in time crunch how about leaving hem raw. What type of fabric is it? My dress is polyester and I now wish I'd left the hem raw. Not sure though if you can get away with it at work :(
      But definitely go for asymmetric hem!

  5. I think that top dress looks amazing on you. The colour and style is perfect. My favourite so far! Its suits your colouring perfectly and love the accessories = bet you wowed them all with those skull earings. BTW, your friends look incredibly chic too, very European!

  6. so chic. bright blue is gorgeous on you!

    I found my sweater in the Montreuil flea market of Paris, I had it for 1 euro !!!
