Colors of fashion and decor seem to go hand in hand. Yellow and Blue is what I have planned for the cottage. And you've given me the inspiration for an outfit tomorrow! if it's warm enough

oh my goodness, that carolina herrera dress...I've just died and gone to heaven!

Winnie said...

Yellow and blue are so fun together. So refreshing!

freeTEYme said...

I've been searching for the perfect yellow bag - that Lanvin is definitely a contender!

Savvy Mode SG said...

such a beautiful contrast for the summer. The 2nd CH gown is divine.

janettaylor said...

Oh, yes! Perfect - esp. navy blue and sun yellow! :)

Diego R. Wyatt said...

Such a fresh pairing of vibrant colors. Amazingly together, they are not too bold. I wish I could pull of yellow. The Carolina Herrera gown is positively ferocious! I also love the John Rocha, which is such an innovative and unexpected sillhouette. I love the totes as well, but do you think the blue and yellow bag with the blue and yellow look is too matchy-matchy?

Jasmina said...

theses two colors look so fresh together now after a cold winter ^__^

The Little Fashion Treasury said...

oh yes, BEAUTIFUL...
so many photos I like... the maxi dress, the bags..
CUTE!!!! ... and Lanvin is always worth a buy ;)

What is it about these colors that look SO GOOD together?? Something about them reminds me of summer for rich people, vacationing on the yacht! If I can't have the yacht, might as well have the color palette :~)

Complimentary colors are always so gorgeous =]

I live in Marlboro, which isn't too far away, but still a considerable distance. It's probably the most boring, typical suburban town ever. Haha =]

Bisous,
La C.

Anthea said...

Spring is coming spring is coming! Can't wait. Love the blues that are almost purple and the mixing and matching. Great post as always Miss Couture Carrie! Check out my interview with New York designer Nima!

Hey Carrie. I think those look great. It reminds me of my school colors which were blue and gold (our gold always looked like yellow).

emma said...

this is such a good summer combination! i love the pic of blair and nate

kingchic said...

Even before scrolling down to read the post, Marc Jacobs popped into my head. Then voila! He sent a few yellow/blue ensembles down the runway for S/S09 and many of the accessories had the same colourway. Yellow is going to be the colour of the season; just a prediction ;) P.S. Jourdan Dunn is getting more gorgeous every time I see her.

Bloomer :D:D:D

And UGH to the picture of Nate and Blair. Blair is supposed to be with Chuck.

Kosmopolight said...

Yellow and blue are so great together. It makes me think of a summer cottage in the French countryside.

Trisch said...

Who would have thought that yellow and blue could look so stylish and elegant together and not like the colors of a football team!
