Colorphile Series: Another Submission Challenge and Stripedy Stripes.

I for one think it’s high time for another Colorphile Challenge around here, don’t you?! It’s been a while, my fellow color crooners! If you need a refresher on how it all works, you might want to pop by here.

I’ll go first.

The inspiration, (taken by moi when I was experimenting with my 50 mm lens. Not too shabby, eh)?

Inspiration: Green, pool, coral

The Execution:

Wearing: Top-J.Crew Silk Bow Cami in Stripe, Cardi-ATL, Skirt-purchased on vacay in Seattle, Shoes-Madewell Striped Treeline Heel, Earrings-Anthropologie

Aside from the color challenge going on here, I also really wanted to take my new J.Crew bow cami out for a date with my new striped shoes.  Stripedy top with stripedy toes? You betcha.

Madewell Treeline Striped Heels

I still can’t believe they had my size in this top. In store price was $39.99 with the extra off =$27 and change). Maybe fist-bumping every S.A. in the store and kissing that one random dude on the cheek was a bit much….but I couldn’t hide my excitement. ;)

By the way, I am no longer a Madewell virgin. I took the plunge when I noticed these stripedy sirens were on sale with an additional 30% off! I also ordered a cardigan that never arrived, though I was still charged for it. WHAT THE?! I promptly called them to inquire and they apologized for the “inconvenience”, but they must have sold out of the item and overlooked the fact that I was still charged for it, even though I was never notified of the cardi being sold out. BOO! Two big fat thumbs down for customer service, but the heels I received are stripedy nirvana. I ordered a size up as indicated, and they fit wonderfully. I can’t wait to wear them with socks in the fall too!

Now to be nit-picky…please have your submissions in to me by midnight (central time) Sunday, July 22. That means you have one week, my little color charismas.  Be brave! Be inspired! Be a submitter!

xoxo Molly
