did someone say monochrome?

Monday, 7 January 2013

I was browsing through motel and asos and it seems clear that monochrome is now 'on trend'.
Now i personally don't wear alot of black and white together, I'm more of a glitter and print kinda' girl..

But it's growing on me, and after reading some minimalist based bloggers, ie:


I want my home and wardrobe to look like hers!
Now i can't really throw out everything i own (wardrobe wise), so it's going to be a future aim, when i get my own house etc..
my parents have always favoured minimal decor, and i just thought it was more 'empty rooms' but i understand it now, and i like the basic, non-clutter structure.

Looking at my gold and duck-egg blue 'vintage feel room' urges a re-vamp.
Of clear plastic furniture, metal details and of course, alot of white!

How do you feel about this 'new trend'?

did someone say monochrome?


ps. i know the jewelled collar isn't very monochrome, no thw two toned chain, but it's more of a sense of how i would wear this trend :)

      no it's not from motel.. I'm pretty sure it's actually Asos's brand, I'm sure if you type in striped polo kneck it will appear x
