I’m not usually a fan of Blake Lively‘s fashion choices. They’re often too provocative for my taste. But I love the Michael Kors strapless and nude pumps the Gossip Girl star wore to tonight’s CFDA Fashion Awards. Neon and nude is currently one of my favorite color combos and her outfit reminds me of when I decided to bare more than usual while vacationing in Miami. It was fun dressing like Serena van der Woodsen instead of Blair Waldorf for a night. Still, I prefer to wear American Apparel’s fluorescent dress (which also comes in neon pink) as a skirt, like I happened to do today. Maybe if the strapless was a thicker material—or had more material!—I’d be more comfortable wearing it as a dress.
Just out of curiosity, I looked for a few neon options online and stumbled upon this one-shoulder dress from Forever 21. It’s not neon and nude, but hot pink and black is an equally cool look. I’m debating ordering it. Then there’s Wet Seal’s colorblock dress, which is cute as well—and only $18.50. Or I could just go with Topshop’s neon pink knickers. So kidding! Who on earth would pay $50 to look like Roller Girl?
