Outfit Of The Day
Happy Wednesday. I hope you are having an Undefeated Day. I know I have been missing in action, however, I am back today with the deets on this frugal runway find I wore to a Birthday Brunch at RPM Italian followed by drinks and dancing at one of my fav spots Harlot DC.
This frugal find is all about color and wearing sleepwear ensembles during the day. Who said you can't wear house coats outside? I make my own rules when it comes to fashion. I am always thinking outside the box and looking for ways to make pieces fresh and current.
I found this GORGEOUS rare1960's quilted vintage asian collar brunch coat that I decided to wear as a dress. It was perfect for Sunday's brunch because the weather here in DC has been soooo bipolar. It was between 45-65 degrees. Not too cold and not too warm. The material was warm enough for me not to have to wear a coat as the temperature dropped after 5ish.
Spring/Summer 2022 is all about color, monochrome ensembles, and or adding a little bit of contrast. I do my homework and according to whowhatwear orange was one of the colors to know according to the runways.
Instead of a monochrome look, I decided to add contrasting colors Also known as complentary colors which are colors opposite of the color wheel. If you ever have a hard time figuring out which colors compliment each other, you can use the color wheel as your guide to help you visualize which colors fit best together.
As you can see below, orange and blue are directly across from each other. I then chose, red which is within the same family to the left of the color wheel. Warm colors left of the wheel and cool colors are to right. This can make pairing easy if you are just staring out.
