color story: blue & yellow. / sfgirlbybay

there’s something about the pairing of blue and yellow that just says ‘holiday’ to me. maybe because it reminds of the south of france, and striped umbrellas on the cote d’azur but the color pairing is nothing less than cheerful. sure, it can lend itself to a moodier feel, because let’s face it, both blue and yellow come in many different shades — from perky butter yellow and cobalt blue that simply scream ‘happy’, to rich gold tones combined with deep navy blue that lean towards the dramatic end of the color spectrum. but together they’re a super-powerful color combination! this week’s color story is all about blue & yellow.

  1. Glad you’re better.
    I want to give a shout out for the crochet bags, I was always sceptical of them, now I have one I love them.

  2. I am glad you are feeling better. Please reconsider working with Anthropology. It has been proven by many people previously employed by them,, that they teach sales associates to carefully follow African American shoppers in their stores.This is quite unacceptable……don’t you think?

  3. Victoria – Fabulous post. There must be something in the air about this color combo. i just put together a series of images for a client that I called “deep blue and tobacco’! Absolutely love. Glad you are on the mend. Thanks for more inspiration.

  4. Ummm, I debated saying anything but I worked for Anthropologie for several years (I’m an Anthropologist -Lol) and the Santa Barbara store NEVER would have approved of that sort of profiling. I know retail can make all sorts of horrible assumptions about shoppers – from age, sex/gender, socio-economics, ethnicity, but I did not experience bias against Black shoppers during my time with them.
