Being Canadian, I tend to avoid those colors (or red and white, for that matter!), but I do like the Kors swimsuit and See by Chloe dress . . .

Aliena said...

I could totally wear that Gucci outfit...

yiqin; said...

I like the michael kors one! & the shoes are amazing. <3 your posts!

rossovelvet said...

Epic theme ! I love the 51's Elle...
I don't like blue-white-red very much because I'm italian and there's always this competition with France... but I love the stars, and the ' alternative ' patriotism too, like in historic references or so...
Anyway, the post is really great !

And thanks for the comment, I should totally make that post !

Anika said...

I love everything, I kid you not. I must be a(American) patriot. Haha, or more just a fan of those three colours paired together, so elegant, ce n'est pas?

Countrybelle said...

yay obama! it's the first time in my life that i would consider wearing red, white, and blue.

Totalmente adecuado tu post, fantástico!

Sr Q said...

Me encanta cuando se juega con estos tres colores, azul, blanco y rojo, ya sea en la versión marinero, en el rollo verano Hamptons o directamente barras y estrellas. Es una debilidad la que tengo con esta combinación, me fascina. Es fresca, infantil, masculina y femenina, y muy sofisticada. Por cierto, excelente selección de pendientes de aro en el post anterior. Un saludo.

Most impressive ...aced it!

Patriotic fashion.....salute!
