playing with colors

Color blocking is one of the hottest trends 
for spring season. It's a combination of two or more 
contrasting colors in one ensemble. 
The trend inspires me to create this dress out of knit fabric scraps 
that has been sitting in my drawer for quite some time.
It can be worn in two ways...
as a dress, the pattern looks like a skirt and blouse.
or it can be worn as a top, resembling a blouson.
Pairing it with favorite accessories,
Voila!
As reflected on my shades, you will see the man behind my pictures.
He is my hubby, my photographer because
he doesn't have a choice! hahaha!
Have a great day! :-)

I love color blocking, but I don't actually do it myself -- mainly because I suck at it. I'm more of a neutrals girl.
