Kentucky basketball season may be over, but we still have blue on the brain. Granted we aren't dreaming of sneakers and jerseys, yet we definitely have a case of the fashion blues. This week we are taking our new 'Outfit of The Week' for a walk on the monochrome side. At the center of our look is a staple piece for any girl who loves fashion. Diane Von Furstenberg is known for her signature wrap dresses so much that they have become a wardrobe staple. Wrap-style dresses are universally flattering – the tied waist can be re-adjusted to fit the individual's unique proportions, while the V-neck opening offers a tantalising slice of décolletage. We love the indigo trim used on this piece that highlights the design. We're always a sucker for a gorgeous pair of shoes, which is why the heels we chose are so perfect for this look. Crafted of navy suede, Gianvito Rossi's sandals are styled with a blue tone lucite heel and ties that wrap around your ankle in a variety of creative ways. Allowing our bag to stay true blue called for some major arm candy. Gucci's periwinkle-blue leather Dionysus bag is encrusted with crystal dragonflies and blooming roses. The structured body is topped with a brown bamboo-root handle, and accompanied with a web-striped shoulder strap. Most Gucci pieces are conversation starters, and this little beauty is no exception. Since our handbag is such a showpiece, we kept our jewelry on the simple side. These chic studs from WWAKE have a refined elegance. They are made from 14 karat yellow gold and finished with 2mm opals and a sparkling black diamond. We decided to go a little bold for the makeup. Yves Saint Laurent Beauty's Couture Palette is equipped with five shadows to customize your look. The crease-proof formula is infused with a high concentration of pearls and pigments, and a complex of transparent powders to ensure up to 12 hours of stunning hold. Use all the shades for an intense smoky eye or simply dust your bottom lash line for an instant color boost. This look can easily be worn from day to night, and wherever you go you can rest assure onlookers will be envious of your many 'Shades of Blue'.
