Mad About Navy & Neon


I must come clean and admit that I jumped on the Mad Men bandwagon last weekend, popping by a 60's themed, San Jose event, called Retro Pop. A fab fashion show accompanied by some fun, throwback band beats, the whole shindig washed away my rainy day blues. Gathering my own get-up, for the event, was quiet the ball, for although I do not follow the show, I am a major fan of the era's sweet and sophisticated style. Thus attempting my own take on a 60's look, I decided to pair a vintage polka dot sheath dress with some neon yellow accessories for a pop of spring to summer color. If you are looking to infuse some neon in your wardrobe I definitely recommend wearing it with navy as a foundation. From tangy orange to punk pink to florescent yellow, navy is a great sophisticated pallet that juxtaposes these bold neons perfectly. As for the lips, you may be wondering. I took a risk and sported some pouty pink for a hint of va-va-va-voom. Is it a yay? or nay? Please do let me know.
