Vivid x FKL: Splatter!

I've had a pair of white sandals (seen above) for about two years and I had never worn them. After trying to think of what to do to them, I asked my good friend Fatima Laster of FKL Designs to spatter them with paint! I decided to keep the outfit simple and make the shoes and other accessories the focal point.

Corset top: Gap, Jeans: Gap, Clutch: Thrift, Assorted bracelets & Earrings: Beauty Supply Store, Watch: Adidas, Nails: Essie Pink Parka Shoes: Breckelle's x FKL Designs

They came out FAB, wouldn't you say?

Vivid: Gettin' Personal

Ok guys, after some serious consideration and persuasion from friends I've decided to make Vivid a celebrity fashion/personal blog. I will incorporate some of my daily looks as well as some things I find on my many shopping excursions. I hope you'll join me as I start this new venture and thanks for reading!

Second time around mommy, Jessica Alba looked absolutely radiant as she walked the red carpet of Spy Kids 4 premiere in L.A. She wore a black and white starry printed maxi dress, perfect for showing off her baby bump and sported a saucy up-do. The dress is easy-breezy and perfect for such an occasion.

Stacey Dash's Pink and Green Colorblocked Ensemble

Sorry for the poor quality, I took this on my TV screen.
 Did anyone else see episode 107 of  VH1's Single Ladies Monday night? If you didn't, you missed a treat! Val, played by Stacey Dash wore a colorblocked ensemble that Crayola would rival! The stylish entrepreneur rocked a hot pink Jil Sander tee and a kelly green mini skirt with a huge bow at the waist, she topped it off with blue Christian Louboutin heels. In one word, her look was perfection. Check out the video as the show's stylist, Anthony Williams breaks down the inspiration for her look:

Vivid Look of the Day: Kim Kardashian

Reality Starlet Kim Kardashian was spotted shopping in NYC with her fiance, Matt Lauer wearing this acid yellow poet sleeve dress by Elise Overland and Guiseppe Zanotti blue suede lace-up sandals.

I love the simplicity of this ensemble. The easy-breezyness of the baby doll dress and the platform sandals are perfect for a day strolling the streets with you boo. Not to mention the acid yellow paired with colbalt blue, #winning!

What do you think of Kim K's look?
