CC, I do love monochrome in bright bright color.

Congrats Meg! Monochrome has been everywhere the past few seasons. I love the Narciso Rodriguez pre-fall look, it is so simple and structured, but not rigid. The green Valentino couture look is absolutely breathtaking, as is the TSE pre-fall look, which reminds me of a high fashion nun lol. Christian Dior has done some amazing monochromes this season too!

Bombchell said...

some of those are so lovely!!! and some of those OD's on monochrome lol

Meg said...

I love these head-to-toe looks and how noe of them look the least bit cheesy!

And I can't believe I won. I am super flustered and my hands are sweaty. So exciting!!!

MizzJ said...

Who knew only wearing one color could look so good?!

please sir said...

Ohh the yellow is fantastic!

captivateme said...

yay congrats to the winner! I adore this post...I probably do the monochrome thing more than I should, but looking at these images, who can blame me? :-)

Blair said...

Oh, love the purple and yellow ensembles! Never really thought of wearing the same color head to toe..hmmm. xx b

G said...

congrats for Meg!

Gonna be there for the next one!

Cupcakes and Cashmere said...

ooh what fun colors...i like the idea of head to toe in cream!

Lisa said...

i never truly wear all one color,except for grey, for fear of looking too dark or on the other end of the spectrum like a piece of fruit ;)
but of course, they are all pulled off beautifully here.

hope505 said...

Beautiful! I am mentally grouping all my clothing into monochrome outfits now...hmm...I will need more shoes!

I am a fan of items without patterns. I guess I just go for the classic look and for the most part feel that this is achived with simple fashion, rather than busy patterns. I like these items =)

Helena said...

I love that red man dress! I wish more men had the guts to dress up. (Well, in small towns they would get a punch in the face so I kind of understand...)

And electric blue has always been my favourite. :-)
