Any one boast at least a pair of statement heels? I thought so! How often do you style them or build looks around them? Tricky right? Ok how about black pumps or nude pumps? Those on the other hand are 'grab and go' for most of us. Every once in a while I just love the idea of pairing statement pieces. You could call it a variation of print on print. 

Well it was one of those days. I chose not to play by the rules. And by the rules I mean print outfit with solid shoes and vice versa. Or nude shoes as a deviation from black. Today I call BS. I went bold. My mirror may not have been in total agreement but I’m not always in total agreement with my mirror anyhow. It was a fringe benefit kind of day featuring on trend statement pieces. A colorful fringe skirt with an island vibe to it and fringe heels previously styled here and here. Paired with statement sleeve shirt previously styled here. This look is fun and playful. The clashing without being over the top gave me such a delight, clashism! 
To match or not to match? Would you or would you not?

#NSale
Yes the biggest sale of the year aka Nordstrom sale is finally open to all. I'm linking some products that I'm coveting and have added some to my arsenal. The best items tend to go fast like I stated here so the earlier you hop to it, the better your chances of snagging things you really need especially for the upcoming Fall /Winter season. That ankle boot you've been eyeing. The lovely oversized coat that will be an anchor piece many times over. The bag you'll be building your looks around. The home accents that will put a smile on your face as you walk through the door everyday. The makeup and brush sets. The list goes on and on and on. Here are some of my faves. There are a few more of my faves here. Prices go back up on August 8th.  


These are also all linked in the 'Shop The #Nsale widget' at the bottom so if you are visual, it's all set up for you, :). 

Giveaway
I'm also hosting a $100 Nordstrom Card giveaway. What would you buy with it? Some of the fab items listed? Which ones? A comment stating what you'll purchase enters you for this giveaway. The winner will be picked at random and contacted via email so don't forget to include your email. It's that easy!

  3. I agree with you , one needs to break the rules in fashion ,sometimes those monotonous looks can make my style boring . Wow! I'm staring at your skirt like the way Cookie monster stares at cookies .. drooling. I wish I was in the states so I can shop till I drop from the Nordstrom store. I have my eyes on the skinny ripped jeans. You look stunning in this colourful style . You nailed the look Idu and Slayed as always . Have a great weekend dear.

  9. I've always loved those CL's! Anytime I've seen them, thought they were stunning. I actually think they pair nicely with the fringe, you manage to pull it off! I have a couple of bold, statement shoes but they never seem to get a look in.

  19. Dear Idu, what a fantastic idea to pair statement pieces together! You are so right - there are days when we want to be bold - and not to be on the safe side :) Nevertheless your look is perfect, you look adorable and I love it how you combined the pices together. Hopefully you had a wonderful weekend so far!

  37. You are a girl after my own heart, Idu, you're so right, who cares about rules? Rules are meant to be broken and sometimes it's refreshing to go a little OTT. That said, your outfit looks amazing and that skirt is to die for. Thank you so much for the giveaway, Idu! Honestly there is so many things that I want from the sale but if I really have to narrow it down to only one item then it would be a Kate Spade cross body bag or a bucket bag, I'm in desperate need for one. LOL! Hope you had a very lovely weekend, beautiful and your mum and daughter are having a blast in Canada!
