Color Blocking Dress from Aupie

I have recently discovered a new street fashion website. Aupie Womens Fashion Online Store

Very similar to Romwe, Oasap and Sheinside, they sell trendy fashion items at a very affordable price.

I recently got this piece, Womens Short Sleeves Round Neck Dress.

It is the perfect transition item to bring me into fall. I think color blocking will still be a big trend this fall.

I paired it this time with these vintage Nina Ricci heels.

The look created by these two items is very adorable and work appropriate. I
Like to keep color blocking pieces clean of other distractions. The piece itself deserves to shine on its own.

Peachy Keen

So my very first scrabble word was Dogvane!

What's a dogvane you ask?

Dogvane in a park

That is a dogvane.

No, those items do not have anything to do with scarbble. Though, hat, used with some combo words and triple word bonus can land you some serious points.

What do all three of things have in common though?

Well, the first depicts the setting of this entry, while the second star in it.

Lately, we have been getting really crappy rainy, gloomy, grey and cold days in the morning. But come quitting time, the clouds part and rays of sun warm up the cold parts of the pavement, and perhaps my heart.

Works for me, I rather be able to enjoy what little there is the the sun we get as much as we can.

So, on another typical Vancouver day, we headed out for another "typical" shoot.

See my face, well that's pretty much the day from morning to afternoon, from gray to yay!

This ensemble is mostly items of the vintage variety. The top and skirt are both from the Fair during their moving sale. I hope they find a new location soon and reopen once again.

The skirt didn't have slits quite so high. They were more only up to my knees. For some reason, it just did not look right. I had to take drastic measures and upped ante by raising the slits.

I am happy with the results.

It just gives the whole outfit so much more movement.

The plush green grass fields really provides the most optimum back drop for this peachy outfit.

So, would you say this is more monochrome? or is it colour blocking? Yes the colours don't vary so drastically as you would see a typical colour blocked outfit. But at the end of the day, it is solids on solids.

Oh it's all semantics, the important thing is, it's a happenin' outfit.
