Black, white and COLOUR!

I'm a hairstylist and thus have attended hair school...How shocking. And, believe it or not, we had a dress code while in hair school. It seems slightly ridiculous to limit the fashion of someone looking to step into the beauty industry, but hey, I had no choice in the matter. Anyhow, we were only allowed to wear BLACK AND WHITE. That's right...Black and white. No grey, no cream, no brown...Trust me, you would be sent home even if your black pants had faded to an ultra dark grey. There were, however, no limitations to the colour of our accessories. Thus I learned the art of making an outfit great with accessories. Today's blog is dedicated to black and white sets with a PUNCH of colour.

Fun t-shirts.

I love a great t-shirt. Who doesn't? Recently I went on a frenzy, saving as many great t-shirts as I could find. I enjoy trying to make a t-shirt look fashionable minus the typical jeans combo.

So, what have we learned today kids? Keep plaid simple. Don't pile it on. One basic plaid piece is enough for an outfit.

Pushing Daisies

Recently I was bored out of my mind and flicking through the channels on that lovely little picture box also known as a television set and I came across this lovely little show called Pushing Daisies. Aside from the stunning brightness, witty dialogue, and, well, looking at Lee Pace, I rather enjoyed the beautiful costumes. The costume designer is Robert Blackman. The man hasn't really done anything remarkable in his career. He did Star Trek and American Gladiators way back in the day. So I would certainly call Pushing Daisies the highlight of his career.

Anyhow, for my first Polyvore loving post I decided to highlight a few Pushing Daisies inspired sets. Enjoy the joyful goodness. And then eat some pie.

The lovely neya showed us this lovely little creation.
