Is Gray the New Black?

What colors stand the test of time? Let’s investigate what colors last in fashion.

Thanks for joining us for the second part of our The Little Dictionary of Fashion by Christian Dior installment. This post included several color mentions, a bold statement to declare in something not as fleeting as a TikTok video! So I decided to dive deeper, fashionista! In the dictionary for ‘B’, today I am reviewing Dior’s mention of colors, “black” & “blue” in reference to the fashion world.

Shoe, dazzle, I do

My shoespiration was nothing less sparkly than the original Cinderella Shoe by Jimmy Choo. Since this Cinderella is on a budget, we found the next best thing-which turned into the perfect pair for me. After searching online far and wide from eBay to Revolve, Amazon to every shoe store possible, as the wedding approached, these shoes danced into my newsfeed (thanks, targeted ads!). Discovering the sparkly heel, elegant style, dash of purple – my fave color – and that they were available in my size, were true signs they were meant to be. Keep reading to see the shoes waiting to accompany us down the aisle.

Boho Fashion Inspiration

For some style inspiration, I’m happy to share with you this shoot from the lovely @bridalandbraids & @amylimaphotos 🤗

This look is boho inspired with a denim influence, infused with elements of pale pink. It started with the pink top and adding other layers to that. The “messy” bun enhances the style and complements the feel of “effortlessly boho chic”, thanks to Ryann’s uber talented hair styling and vision. (Spoiler alert: “messy buns” are not so easy!)

This look of a more structured jean on jeans + sheer flowy pink dress + pink chunky boots is a fun way to show how to incorporate different kinds of material into one look, mixing structure with a feminine feel. Hopefully this gives you some style inspiration. What other pieces do you like mixing together?

With the dream team!
