Some things just don't go away and you can call me passe or tell me to get over it but a certain Light and Fantastic editorial for UK Vogue from well over a year ago still lives on inside my head and ODDLY enough, yesterday, I reminisced over an outfit that I wore precisely a year ago (ok, 26th Jan 2008…close enough…) and got into my head that I simply had to wear an abundance of grey with neons… even if my DIY neon ball top is going to give me a lumpy boob effect (is lumpy boob better than no boobs?).  So with more cut-up tights, as I did a year ago and a new S Loves C Spring & Clifton studded top (neon studs…hmmm…the mind reels…) I did a bit of outfit regression that was also partially inspired by my chipping pink nails.

I'm guessing until I fulfill the entire pastel ruffly clutch with pale blue fantasy, that editorial won't be fully obliterated from my mind…

    Ooh! I love both takes on ‘neon’, but I think the ‘new’ version is even more gorgeous! Love it with the soft grey, and the DIY pom pom top…just brilliant!

    Eeeeek Susie if I saw you wearing this in the street I would run up and nuzzle your cheeks and squeal with glee! It’s such a bright, happy little outfit!

  3. DJM says:

    That Vogie editorial was cut out and pasted in my scrap book. It also had a huge effect on me (although not enough to actually try the look out!)

  4. Honey, your blog is so fabulous you are one of the recipients of the “Your Blog is Fabulous” award – check my site! Love, love, love what you’re doing!!!

    I saw the pics at shouted ‘Light and Fantastic’ in my head before I even read the text.
    It’s seems sill to say – as I increasingly wear only grey and black – but it has to be one of the most inspiring editorials ever.

  11. You love your colours and grey jersey don’t you! Looks amazing, have you worn this out and about in London yet? You’d deffentatly make a few people smile through the grey miserable weather!

    oh and thanks a lot for adding us to your link list!
    best, andra

  14. I just love the whole idea of pairing neon colours with a subtle colour like grey. it really stands out!

  15. Love the last bit at the bottom. And I don’t think the lumpy boob effect is too bad – at least people can see what’s causing it. LOL.

    This outfit is so unique Ms Bubble, I love it so much. Neon is always a win for me, and pairing it with the neutral grey brings out the fluoro in a beautiful way! I’ve commented on your DIY pompoms before, and I think you should do more DIYs 🙂
    Also.. the top, sweater and skirt are the exact same shade, I actually thought this was a one piece dress..

  19. Ooooh neon studs!!! (sorry, not very intelligent comment, this outfit is bringing out the giddy side of me)

  20. Maya says:

  21. meredith says:

    way cute idea! that’s awesome that you thought of neons that far ahead! cool you!!!

  22. KD says:

    I love this! Neon/gray is definitely something I’l be looking into in the future. Tell me, where do you find/buy these awesome but seemingly random little brands?

  23. Eyeliah says:

    Oh gorgeous, the neon with grey feels so fresh.

  24. calamityjem says:

    Yay, it’s the fabby DIY neon pom-pom top…I’m such a big fan of that! I’m yet too use the idea in a DIY of my own but it will be done at some point for sure 🙂

  25. It feels Romain Kremer-ish (SS09)! I love it!

  26. kim says:

    I still remember that outfit too 🙂 it was one of the first posts I read on your blog.

  27. Very good. Grey is best x

  28. Helen-LG says:

    I love this outfit! Especially the way the pompoms burst out of the Vneck!
    The little flash of colour on the ankles really seals the deal too, tying everything together. As someone else said it’s a very happy outfit, I bet you brought smiles to peoples faces in it!

  29. I’ll never be over neon either. Lovely outfit, I like the Pompoms peeking out! Lol, great stuff!

  30. Love this outfit! Your DIY pompom shirt is awesome. And the florecent accents pop really well off that pale grey.
