Color block my world!

Okay, we are totally obsessed with this season's latest trend-- color blocking! It's so fresh and fun and bright! It screams spring just by pairing saturated colors together in simple, clean shapes.

We were so inspired by these looks from Rachel Roy and Lanvin that we simply had to put our own, Secondhand Star spin on them.

And here they are!
Two amazing pencil skirts in double faced silk, each purchased for $1.00!
Bright heels made these warm tones really pop!
And a strong vivid belt pulled together corresponding shades of blue...
Tanya's retro rolls and signature red lips brought a splash of the 40's into the mix.
And what better way to usher in spring in all its warmth then by grabbing some gelato!
Chocolate? Salted caramel? We couldn't decide...
So we ordered both! 

Picture perfect red walls make blues appear even more luscious!
Maybe there's time for another scoop...?
Or not...

And what color story would be complete without bright clutches for spring?
Or bright heels to add some whimsy!
