Stained Cobalt


In 1802, Louis Jacques Thénard, a French chemist discovered a color so glorious, so vibrant it burned the retinas of all the Parisian townspeople in that time period. Okay, so that didn't really happen, but he really did unearth one of the most majestic colors the world (more like I) have ever seen... Cobalt blue. I will spare you all with the boring details of how he found this color... frankly because I didn't feel like reading any more of Wikipedia.com (yes ladies and gentlemen, wikipedia can be a reliable source of information). So here is where I pay hommage to the Christopher Columbus, the Ponce de Leon of colors... Louis Jacques Thénard. Thank you sir, thank you for discovering cobalt, so that women and men everywhere can wear a color that dazzles as much as wearer does(corny, but true)!


Anyways, back to earth. Today, I went thrifting with one of my dearest friends, Holly and found a fantastic leather envelope-style clutch! It's 100% real leather and was imported from Italy (ahh, brilliant)! I scooped it up immediately. Yay to cobalt and yay to vintage purses! O and I had to wear my yellow gladiators... I think it suited the shape of the dress. It draped beautifully when I belted it... it had a casual Grecian feel that felt perfect for the summer.




(Tank, the Limited. Blue dress, Old Navy. Leather Belt, Vintage. Gladiators, Urban Thread. Clutch, Vintage. Vine Ring, Dillards.)


Oh, and I have just realized that I am obsessed and can't stop wearing my yellow gladiators and Old Navy wedges. Trust me, I own more shoes than that lol.


Thanks again for all your comments on all my previous posts :)
