Daily Outfit: 10/11/11

Already Pretty outfit featuring mustard skirt, cobalt button-down shirt, red suede pumps, Tsubo Amset, mesh bracelet, love knot earrings

Blue button-down, thrifted – similar
Skirt, Anthropologie Field Skirt (no longer available at Anthro) – a few on eBay
Belt, from a pair of shorts – similar
Pumps, Tsubo Amset courtesy Tsubo (no longer available) – similar
Bracelet, thrifted – similar
Necklace, self-made – similar
Earrings, thrifted – similar

I have to credit Franca for inspiring this outfit. I’ve seen her do all primary colors many times, and always LOVED how bright, bold, and cheery it looked. With this recently-thrifted shirt now in my possession, I thought I’d try a red-yellow-blue look for myself. Picking a muted mustard instead of a bright yellow helped me feel a little more sophisticated, as did adding the neutral belt.

These earrings are from my Hopkins Antique Mall haul, and I love how incredibly bright they are. That brilliant silver plays off all this color quite nicely, I think.

    This is brilliant! Such a sophisticated and editorial, dare I say, spin on primary colors. LOVE!

    Ok, now add a red cape blowing in the wind and a half mask and you’ve got “The Feisty Fashionista!” (or any other superhero name you think better suits you.)

    ‘Looking gorgeous, as always, Sal! And thanks for the hints about upping the sophistication factor with bright colour combos. Once again, I am taking notes.

    Also, I don’t think I’ve said so as yet, but your new short haircut is beautiful. I love how perfectly it frames your delicate features.

    When I saw the thumbnail of this in my “top sites” I just HAD to click!

    These are colours I crave in a silhouette I covet. I need a bright blue shirt, stat! 🙂

    Love your mix of colors! Thanks for the tip on the Hopkins Antique Mall; if I have time I’m going to check it out for possible hat heaven.

    LOVE IT! I have the exact same skirt and I wore it today too–with a white button down, brown leather belt, and brown boots 🙂 I got so many compliments and I’m sure you did too!

    You are the queen of super cute a-line dirndl style skirts! I love this primary color blocking look!! Mustard is one of my favorite Fall colors.

    At the last photo it suddenly dawned on me that you look like Snow White! It’s definitely not a bad thing (in my opinion); I actually love looking up fashion inspired by movies I love, but a lot of them get super literal. But you look sassy and chic! Definitely trying this!

    Hey Sal!
    I just wanted to tell you I LOVE the shirt/ skirt combo on you. I think the whole thing works really well, with the higher waist and the length and all.
    It reminds me of the pink/ red shirt/ skirt combo you used to illustrate the effect of different waist heights.
    The pink/ red outfit is easy my all time favourite!
    I will have to try it someday. I have a looooong waist so it would probably make my legs go forever, awesome!
    Thanks again for the inspiration!

    You’re channeling the romanian flag today. Love this colourblocking!

  11. C'est Chic!

    FANTASTIC, Sal! Possibly the best look I’ve ever seen on you — though with all the choices you give us it’s impossible to pick! Did love the lace skirt/chambray shirt/Frye boots combo too, for instance! But this sophisticated colour blocking is STUNNING!

    Great oufit! That skirt is awesome, and I really love the blue of the shirt. This looks great on you.

    I’m really into the idea of mixing primary colours lately, but I haven’t been brave enough to just go for it, for fear of looking silly. Thanks for the inspiration, Sally (and for proving me wrong!).

    Color blocking at its finest. Great use of mustard yellow too. It is for me, an unsung hero on the color wheel. xo -Bella Q

    Oooh, you’re like a sophisticated and classy Wonder Woman! Or Snow White! (Primary color outfits always make me think of those two!)
