Colorphile Series: Submission Challenge

So, those of you who have been following me this past year know that I am a color lover, a color junkie, a down-right color whore fanatic.  One of the first posts I ever wrote was actually a guest post for the now defunct blog Anthroholic.  The post was all about color inspiration, where I find it when I need a boost, and how I implement it into what I wear. Here’s some photos to jar your memory:

Outfit inspired by the cover of a Pottery Barn Catalog

Outfit inspired by an existing print, in this case, the Wightwick Manor Dress.

This original artpiece inspired....

This outfit.

I ended the post with a challenge to any and all bravies who wanted to participate.  All you had to do was send me a picture of your inspiration and your outfit.  I ended up breaking up the post into two parts. You can read them here and here.

Thanks to all the ladies who participated, we had a good show.  I thought it was fun, so I’d like to make it a regular series here.

So here’s the skinny: Send me a picture of your outfit inspiration and, of course, of you wearing it.  You have one week to make it happen.  Submissions are due next Sunday night, March 4.

I hope you all find the time to participate, cause I’d love to see what has you inspired.

Want to see what’s inspiring me?

Candy apple red, plus chile pepper red, plus


Lose the boots and I'm ALL OVER this outfit. You can bet I'll be a-huntin' for similarly-hued pieces.

Madewell done Quitewell.

To see which one of these color gems inspired me to dress the part, you’ll have to check out the Colorphile Submissions post next Monday.

For now, I’ll leave you with a morsel of a different kind…an OOTD.

Isn’t this orange color delightful?  Whenever I wear this top, I feel like a luscious persimmon.

Wearing: Skirt-Talbots, Top-Anthropologie Nicoleta Blouse, Belt-J.Crew, Tights-American Apparel, Shoes-Anthropologie Tegu Platforms, Earrings-Anthropologie

It’s just another Manic Monday, friends.  Hope you’re surviving!

xoxo Molly
