Blue Bloods and Blue Collars

Blue is one of my personal favorite colors because it is so versatile. Blue can be worn literally thousands of ways, but because of space concerns, I will just show four takes on it. No matter what your style, you can wear some shade of the color in some way. Fun fact: feeling "blue" in Germany means that one is intoxicated. Read on to find some amazing blue pieces for prices that won't leave you feeling blue. 

Dress it up: 



If you want to feel pretty, girly, classy, and flirty, Campaigne is a great - and underrated- design brand to turn to.  This one shoulder chiffon "Ariel" blue sundress is the epitome of all those adjectives.  It will make you feel like a lady, but there's enough sex appeal there to keep you from feeling drab.  The cut and pale blue print makes it perfect for going on vacation, or for a first date.  It's 40% off at bluefly


Dress it Down:

You can't do a post on blue without delving into the ultimate blue piece of clothing: blue jeans. Blue jeans have transcended age, class and gender to infiltrate just about every wardrobe in the western world, but it's less common to find a pair of blue jeans that will flatter your body, and won't cost a fortune. These Victoria's Secret skinny jeans work best with smaller framed people, and will lengthen the legs. Pair with a flowy tank and heels for a breezy summer look, and look for them in the clearance section where they are $19.99, marked down from $59.99. 


Dress with Class:
I ordinarily am struck by bright bold colors on shoes, often in knee high boot or sneaker form so that it creates an uncompromising block of brightness on the feet. As a result, it was a personal sacrifice to choose these demure Lumiani sapphire blue booties, but because they are so fabulous, I knew they were the right choice to include. You can wear them to class, to the office, to a club or to a party; basically you can wear them anywhere that doesn't require a lot of walking, and you will be the envy of everybody because they are hot and classy at the same time. They also happen to be 40% off at Zappos, which is pretty awesome, as well. 


Dress Apart from the Rest:


So let me tell you why I love these Hanamiusa orchid earrings; they are made with real orchids! I stumbled across a street stall in New York last year who sold flower jewelry that was real flowers dipped in resin in some complicated way to preserve them for a long time, and I fell in love.  They are beautiful and different; you can wear them for an off-beat artsy look with paint-splattered jeans, or you could class them up with a pencil skirt and pumps.  They are fab for an affordable price, as well. Look for them at hanamiusa.com where they are $41.00

Happy Shopping, fashionistas :)
