Everyone knows I love clothes. And bright colours. I have now found – thanks to two friends – the home of my new winter wardrobe.
Keshet. A bright and funky wild shop in the city which sells amazing Tasmanian designed clothes. Insane colours, insane patterns and oh so comfortable. The price is dealable, which makes it even more desireable.
One such friend is now selling these clothes at our local market. After all she totally rocks the crazy patterns and loud clothes, so it is perfect she is selling them. And given the fact I think she buys all her clothes from there already.
I had bought a wrap top from them a month ago, hot pink no less. And a few weeks ago found a gorgeous dark teal cap sleeve wrap top – it brings out my eyes apparently – that is super comfortable and easy to wear over a long sleeve top in cooler weather or with a tank top when it warm.
While I love bright colours, I am not a fan of out there patterns, I just don’t have the confidence to pull it off, not like Rachel. Which is funny, coz she said to me today the bright blue jeans I wore were more out there than any of the crazy patterns she was selling, and she just couldn’t do it. Go figure. I was not at all worried, or self conscious of the colour. Maybe the patterns make me feel like a hippy left over from the 70’s…?
Checking out her rack (ahem, clothes) I found some gorgeous new items and will be doing some serious saving I think. I am more of the plain clothes with a bright accent to stand out, or a basic pattern with a bright highlight. I’ll be the one wearing the dark skirt or skants with basic grey scale pattern with a hot pink, or bright red wrap top. Or maybe my bright blue jeans with a plain poncho.
Should I, could I, wear the hot pink wrap with my bright blue jeans… You won’t miss me then. Or is it just asking people to look??
Bright clothes in winter? You bet. Black is boring, neutrals are nothing, but colour will bring a smile to your face.
