I finally found a color combination that was perfect for color blocking; I must say I am feeling quiet good wearing this outfit today!  If you follow me on twitter (@curveebeauty) then you know me, StyleChic360 and Gen321 all purchased the same knit pencil skirts during the Forever 21 yellow tag sale.  Instead of taking the safe route, typical black skirt, I figured I needed to try something new.   
There isn’t much color in my closet so I hit the goodwill Saturday to find some nice tops specifically for color blocking.  I hit the jackpot, three blouses, for $17!  I can’t wait to see how the other ladies style their skirts.  I just realized my entire outfit is less than $50, minus my hair, lol.  
I want to give a special thanks to all the ladies over at ChocolateBrides.com I read all of your nice compliments.  I joined the forum but I am not about to respond to posts for some reason.

    Chocolate Brides and I love this blog!   We use you for style inspiration. In fact, this morning, I was going to rock your black patterned skirt, belt, yellow cardi look. But decided to hold it for another day.  🙂  I'm gonna add color blocking to my repertoire very soon.

  17. OK, VBFF!!!

    You did this! I love the color combo!!! It is so pretty! You look fabulous! I can't wait to wear my skirt!

  18. I've really got to hit up a thrift store.  I'm seeing everyone finding all these nice things! The only thing I ever bougth from the thrift store was some cute vintage luggage but that was years ago.  I'm SO behind the curve.  Also, I've always been afraid to wear pink and red together but I like this!  I'm going to try to be more adventurous!

  19. Yaaaay! I love this combination. It's a combo that has been on my list to try and of course you look gorgeous!

    I haven't been to Goodwill in months. I think it's time for me to take a trip!

  20. I soooo need a red skirt — how come I can never find any goodies at the thrift store?!
    You looks so nice and I like the curls in your hair — you're  rocking the "color-blocking"!
