Primary Colors

I love colors. Yes, I do. And I love folkloric clothing. So naturally, Anna Sui's Fall line appeals to me, even though it's a little much. Some might say super-saturated. (The two below are my favorites.)

According to style.com, she cites her inspirations as being American Indians, Medivalism, Tiffany vases, the Pre-Raphaelites, and Gustav Klimt. Quite a farrago. Very American, in that sense.

Cowboys and Indians. Channeling Santa Fe.

That coat totally reminds me of two things: Mondrian and playing cards.

Some more subdued colors. Love the black and gold and plum.

I am loving the Ikat tights and the cobalt blue shoes with that buckle that looks a little bit influenced by Polish slippers. And those boots: Santa Fe style straight up.

On another note, my blog and my mum's got featured today at shuttersisters.com. Every month, they do a feature called One Sweet Shot, where people can nominate photographs they want to honor. So check out OSS for this month for loads of beautiful photos, including my mum's!
