Do the matthew

While doing my ritual of clicking on a random designer over at style.com, I found my new obsession for the next few days. Click to enlarge.(Mad lasso tool skillz right here)
I find many of my outfits are too put together, too thought out. I don't experiment enough with clashing colors, fabrics, styles, and prints. After a few minutes of gazing at the computer in awe of these outfits (practically 1 centimeter away from the screen, mind you) I've decided I really need to take more risks with my style. Look at those prints (floral, geometric, tribal...) and materials (leather, satin, fur...), they are clashing but in a way that matches perfectly. So congrats Matt, you have earned a place on my inspiration bulletin board right above my dresser :P

Oh, and me being a Picnik whore:
I secretly want to dye my hair this color.

yeah i know how you feel.
i definitely shy away from clashing prints and all that jazz.

i am interested to see how you take inspiration from matthew and make it your own :)

Did you see his s/s collection? Thats was quite tasty I'd say. My friend just dyed her hair pink and it looks amazing. You should try it, though I do love your natural colour.

My hair was that color once. It made me very happy. You should try it. For a temp-try out: 4 packets of cherry (sugar free) Kool-aid, 2 packets of grape (sugar free) Kool-aid, 5 cups of warm water. Mix. Soak. Enjoy.

The hair color would look great on you!
Love your blog!

Erin said...

Those are ingenious, I am constantly wishing that I could make outfits that look totally thrown together and yet perfectly harmonious. I love the one with the pink shirt.

victoria :] said...

My outfits are also matchy matchy. I just feel safe doing that.
Thats not a bad color for your hair, it looks nice. I love Picnik too :)

Cammila said...

This is a great post -- I never would have known about this designer. I'm often enamored of expertly-clashing outfits as well, but it never feels right when I try to wear that style myself -- if anything I feel better when I'm super matchy.

Also, that comment you left me is way too sweet. :)

you are so adotable

Sammie said...

I've heard of Matthew Williamson, but never seen anything of his. Now I'll definitely check him out now.

I think you should try dying your hair, it'd look pretty darn spiffy that color.

Fashion is Poison- Susie Bubble came into my head too. Great minds think alike!

Nita-Karolina- Your English is fine, no worries, haha! Even if you may not "qualify" for being a model, I still love looking at your outfits and pictures :)

Jillian- I like my hair color too, but I need some change! I'll probably wait a while though if I do ever dye it.

Elastic Allis- Thanks for the tips! Now I might actually be considering it...

yoncto said...

amazing photo with the glasses. i wanna dye my hair that color too... but then again, i wanna dye my hair, like, every color xD

JuliAM said...

yeah, over the last few seasons mw has quickly become one of my favorite designers. love him!

Megan xx said...

My hair actually used to be that colour... It was only tempory, lasting maybe four, five washes. It was the first "rebel" thing I had done so I avoided washing it for a week, before my mum found out and made me. Kind of destroys the rebel thing, but I loved it. Love you and your blog- and wish you all the best. :)
