    Well, I have so much to learn…my photo came out really lame on this site…but if readers will click on it….is looks much better there. I really had fun participating! Thanks for doing this!!

    I didn't think I had the duds to pull this challenge off but I think mine came out alright–it's not very "blocky" but there is certainly color! Thanks for putting this together Kristina, it came out great!

    So glad to be part of this event!! You all look lovely and I love the way you included our thumbnails! That is WAY cool!

    If you stop by my entry today, please also take a minute to check out Project Style and vote for me! Color blocking is the trend I chose for my entry in the contest!!

    Thanks for sponsoring such a lovely event!!

    Ah! I'm so sad I missed participating in this round, bad weather/spring wardrobe still in storage/april clothing budget shot…excuses excuses! Can't wait to click through and see everyone's interpretations!! So fun!

  5. says

    This was so fun! And the thing is I would never have put these pieces together before, but now I'd definitely wear it to work. :) Can't wait for the next assignment!

    I loved the idea of the challenge, the only thing is that the requirement banner is kind of large, could you make a smaller one? I'd love to participate but it's actually to big… :(

    Hey Kristina, Maybe have as one of the requirements that they turn off their friggin' captcha! …or just suggest it really sweetly in a perfect PSS kind of way! I commented on everyone's and at least half had on captcha.

      Hi there – I appreciate the commenting but unfortunately that's just a really unrealistic requirement. I'm not going to tell people how to run their blogs. But I'm sure everyone knows that captcha is annoying! It's a Blogger thing, unfortunately.

      Woman, half the time you say "HATE this" or "Hate that" how was I supposed to know?! Remember the internet screws up sarcasm in a very reliable way!

        True, true.

        By the way, I am loving this challenge and so are tons of other people. Can't believe all the wonderful commenting going on and all the gorgeous clothes. My hat goes off to you for this one…unbelievable. 96 entries? Wowza. You are going to think I am some kind of stalker if you see how many times I've clicked on that page. I just love looking at eveyone's interpretations…

    Kristina, have I told you lately that you're a genius? Because you are. BDIB is such a great idea, and I love how it challenges bloggers to try different looks… I've never really been one for colour blocking before, but thanks to you I'm a total convert!

  1. […] So I’m sure you guys have heard all the hype about the new trend Color Blocking.  Bloggers Do It Better is a new challenge created by the lovely Kristina at Pretty Shiny Sparkly. This challenge consists of weekly assignment of the latest trends where you can linkup on her blog for that week. This weeks first assignment was the Color Blocking trend which is very popular right now and I was up for the challenge. I do love color, but often I only play it safe and not think outside the box. Well with the color blocking trend you do just that and be creative and play around with color. I do need to work on adding more colors in my wardrobe, especially pants. I really don’t own many colored pairs of pants so I will be working on that. Head on over to Pretty Shiny Sparkly to see how everyone else is rocking Color Blocking. […]
