Omcz 6 - neon lights are shining bright

Wednesday, May 08, 2013

Hey Lovelies, 

This #OMCZ is a little different. Rachel sent the email with the challenge and a vital bit of info was missing
3. Challenge:

The comment said she wants us to pick the next few challenges going down the list in number order! 

I am number one of the list so I had to decide of the theme. She said we could go with anything as long it got us out of our comfort zone. 

I was in tesco when I read the email and wandering round the clothes, looking at what was in store and thinking what would get me out of my comfort zone. I'm pretty open to most clothes, I do have a slight hesitation as to actually leaving the house and people seeing me in clothes. Other things i'm not comfortable in is all black but thats boring.  

The one "Trend" I noticed a lot of and that I would like to wear but would be most conscious of wearing in the outside world was:

Neon

When I sent the email back I wrote: 

I feel like I want to explain my choice so feel free to stop reading here and go and grab some Neon. 

Neon to me reminds me of 90s CBBC (UK Kids TV) with the black background and the people painted in Neon Paint dancing. Did you have cycling shorts with a Neon stripe? I did mine were black with a pink stripe. (I have a feeling I may have also had matching wrist (sweat) bands!!!! 

It also reminds me of a bad taste party I went to a few years ago when I dressed head to Toe in Neon. I am slightly afraid of Neon, it is going to make me stand out far more than I am ready to right now. It is in all the shops and I keep seeing people wearing it and I want to wear it as well. 

I also think it is a good contrast to last months pastels. 

Neon has also been chosen ad the theme for one of the night out on my friends hen do in August, so it's time for me to embrace the neon trend and I hope you will too. 


So the Challenge was set: 

1. Date Due:  Wednesday, May 8th

2. Time Due prior to noon your time.
3. Challenge: Neon, your choice be it clothing, accessories, makeup. At least 1 neon colour but the more the merrier. 



Getting me out of my comfort zone I wore Neon for work! 

I wore Blue Chinos from Matalan, Skin Tone Vest Primark (It was work after all) Neon Vest Tesco (I bought it as I picked the challenge - In for a Penny In for a Pound!)
Denim Jacket Evans. Brooch - Made my a friend.


I did specify only one colour of Neon was needed but I felt as challenge setter I needed more. 

Neon Owl Brooch - bijou-brigitte. present from my mum's holiday. 

I also went for Neon Blue nail polish with some glitter to tame it down 

I want us to try something Neon, feel free to be as wild or as tame as you want. Are you ready to "Embrace your inner Highlighter?"

"They say the neon lights are bright on Broadway. They say there's always magic in the air" George Benson. 


I hope you all don't hate this theme and will have go, looking forward to seeing everyones take on it. 

I hope everyone has found something Neon and I can't wait to see your outfits!
