Ice, Ice Baby!

You already know that pastels are IT for fall (scroll down for perfect pastel purses in yesterday's post)! This alluring shade of light blue was featured prominently on the spring runways as well!
Because of its relevant color scheme, CC couldn’t resist posting this photo of an incredibly sited Abu Dhabi home… Credits: Runway pictures via style.com except where noted. Architecture photo courtesy pointclickhome.com.

i can't do ice blue. pale colors wash me out, but teal on the other hand i adore. : ) have a wonderful day.

Always In Style said...

I love these soothing colors...they remind me of the wedding/bridesmaid dress that Leanne just made on PR.

Missa said...

Oooh, the colors in that Nina Rici outfit are AMAZING! And I'll take that Balenciaga bag from the previous post to go with it please!

issa said...

MR style said...

Tiffany said...

this is such a lovely and unexpected color for the winter. I think I may be adding more blue to my wardrobe. Thanks for the inspiration!

La Belette Rouge said...

You all can have everything else, I just want the house in Abu Dhabi. Oh, and if no one wants it I will take that last necklace. Gorgeous!!!

STEFANIE said...

*~The World is My Catwalk~* said...

LENORENEVERMORE said...

ice-ice baby indeed...never knew that white rapper can be a post title inspiration! Told ya', I need my daily Vit CC! Hope you take Vit L too dear... ;)

Loving the cool colour... almost like the ice color in North pole...or is it South Pole??? Hmmm...whatever...

Dana (MODAna) said...

some of these pieces are very unique, esp. that last one, and the double breasted coat w/ the tortoise buttons
but I don't think I could get on board w/ the lighter hue of this color, too clashy w/ my coloring i think, and I don't have the blue eyes to pull it off
I like rich rather than faded
let's trade links already Carrie

ivoreece said...

The colour suits good to winter... But I don't like it so much as another pastel colours.

Penny said...

that is such a fabulous colour, i loooooove the polkadot bra!

La Condesa said...

love the Kokosalaki dress

Now that I think about it, it kind of looks like Balmain's, doesn't it?

Miss Karen said...

I love this shade of blue so much! I can't wait for our fall next year here in Australia to indulge in some cool pale shades!

Bella said...

Amazing color... the pieces are very whimiscal, and I'd be happy to own, ohhh I don't know... all of it!

My Fashion Frenzy said...

Wow, I'm lovin' this color, girl. =)

Hunters Glory said...

This chilling post was properly named as it gave me goosebumps.....

!!!!!\_ ...a 5 heeled post CC!

atelier said...

I think it's more flattering in blondes, but I do have a cashmere sweater that I've not worn in ages! I'll think about it:)

THE HOUSE OF STYLE said...

I think Ice blue=a massive dose of cool! the shades used in Lanvin and particularly Louis Vuitton were so intriguing!I love all those ice blue shades & hues as they look great thrown against a host of other colours.right from neutrals to black.This colour is uber cool!I'm on the hunt for the right piece in that colour so thanks for all the varying inspiration.

Lains said...

I don't think I could ever pull off ice blue :/ It does look nice on pale- and fair-skinned people.

At the Kira Plastinina store, the clothes seemed pretty satisfactory. I had no problems with my dress, or with any other things I looked at.

Nina said...

this is one of my fave colors for spring and summer. i love your posts...all the different shades of a color spread out...so pretty.

Melissa said...

What a stunning color! I love how you portray it.

nv said...

i love this colour, it looks very fresh. I don't really wear it since i don't think it matches my skin-tone well. but i absolutely love the trench/jacket its gorgeous

ramona.ny said...

The color scheme is lovely, reminds me of delicate beginning of the summer.

S said...

I adore the Gucci suit, wish I could convince G to rock it! I am also going to attempt the Gucci eye make-up...this isn't a colour I think I could wear head-to-toe, but for accent pieces and make-up it looks fabulous!

Fashion Moment said...

I am not a fun of blue colour,
but this is beautiful.
Man's suit is great!

Nemerae said...

I don't use to like pastels colours, but now there are some ones that I like a lot, such as beige/cream =D
Blue is great in dresses, altought I still prefer electric or navy blue... anyway, you have posted some very sweet designs :)
Btw, that house is amazing!! I want one like that! *.*
