Chasing that Neon Ray
[Photos by NR] Top: Urban Outfitters Sparkle & Fade Open Back Chiffon Blouse in Neon Skirt: Bebe Ruffled skirt (old, similar here) Purse: Rebecca Minkoff Swing Black Shoulder Bag Shoes: Zara basic black sandals Glasses: Giorgio Armani Bracelets: Kate Spade, spikes from Ebay / Necklace: (removed from a dress) (similar here and here )
By now, I think it’s safe to say that I’m highly addicted to the electric hues from the hot neon trend this spring and this top from Urban Outfitters is the perfect new addition to my flamboyant collection! This top was so bright in person that it was reflecting on my skin. As a matter of fact there were all sorts of strange neon glares in the photos and my wonderful photographer believed that the top was the caused behind those glares (see pic 6). I on the other hand thought they were ghost glares but let’s hope I’m wrong… :/
I wore a strapless corset bra to eliminate distractions of the open back details and paired the top with a ruffled skirt for a fun girlie look. For a dinner party that evening, I traded in girlie ruffles for sparkling sequins (see below).

When I first started my blog back in December 2011, I used to do a lot of versatile outfits using one “main” item. I thought it’s time to bring that back, this time nicknaming it “My Fab4.” My Fab4 will consist of 4 photos of how I’ll pair a particular item in 4 different ways: Night, Day, Work and Casual. Unless I’m head over heels in love with a piece, I always try to buy things that can be mixed and match with a variety of other things…4 outfits are better than 1!
Hope you like & love to hear your thoughts! xo
