All over the Spectrum

Last weekend we went to the Diwali festival, which is the Indian Festival of Lights. It is always a great event, held outdoors in October, and is filled with amazing food, music and dancing performances. There are also tons of vendors there selling everything from clothing, movies, pictures and paintings (which would be great for adding color to your home) as well as amazing jewelry.

One of our favorite parts, besides the great food, is seeing the beautiful and colorful outfits a majority of people at the event are wearing. It is an amazing spectrum of colors and color combinations.

It just reminds me how safe we tend to play our color schemes in real life but really shouldn't. So many colors go beautifully together if we're brave enough to try them together.

In most stores and catalogs you really don't see these bright colors paired together from a merchandising standpoint. But I love when it is. I think JCrew does this the best. They are always mixing colors in such a way that I instantly want them.

One of my current favorite items are their Liza peep-toe heels (now on sale!) They're just so happy!

I took a TON of pictures during the festival, so if you want a little outfit color inspiration, check them out here.

Yum! I love un-safe color combinations. They make my heart feel so happy. The last pair of shoes are so great!

I love un-safe colour combinations too. Love JCrew, too bad they don't ship to Australia.

Did you buy any clothing or movies at the festival? Bollywood films are great.

@fashion_loving_stylist -

We only bought food and my henna tattoo. But we love Bollywood music and movies too. But I did wear my bracelets I bought there last year.

Ah you should see Indian/Pakistani weddings, too. Total riots of colour as opposed to pastel/white Western weddings. And LOTS of bling!

Did you see the article on Bollywood in the November Elle? Interesting read :)

Robo - No, I haven't seen it. I will check it out today!
Thank you for poiting it out.
