Roots X Douglas Coupland Brighten Our Lives

Electric Bonspiel Table, $ 300.00

Click Images for Details

The Electric Bonspiel Table was designed by Douglas Coupland as part of the Roots X Douglas Coupland Collection, as were the scarf and armwarmers.

Douglas Coupland Test Pattern Armwarmers
Were, $ 28.00, Now, $ 19.99

Even though the scarf and armwarmers are made of 100% acrylic, I want them. The design is brilliant, and the price alleviates any worry about whether or not they will pill.

Dear Kromstyle,

The color is not right in the is very vibrant beautiful electric blue. Anyway for a special dinner at Pelago (chicago) sat I am thinking gun metal color sandals. Don't have them. Help Kromstyle what are the options with such a vibrant color? What are your thoughts on shoe/bag pairings with very vibrant colors?
Love, your biggest fan

Dear Biggest Fan,

You're on the right track; gun metal could definitely work, but my first instinct was flesh color. Love the dress, btw.

But sometimes, cool supersedes color.

And other times, something not considered can work too.

If your shoes are neutral, as all of the above are, you can have fun with the bag. Go Sunflower Yellow, Fire Engine Red or Purple (these colors would look great in shiny, crinkly patent)!

Enjoy your night out!
