When I Dip, You Dip, We Dip...

We all know color-blocking is in. But I can't get enough of all the items I am seeing out there that look - or sometimes in fact are - dipped in paint. Whether it's a new accessory or coming up with an eye-popping way to freshen up an old piece, I am all about this craze. As for DIY,  let's remember that anything you paint can always be painted again. So, come on and do the Dip!

These shoes and the color combos they come in make me want to buy one for each day of the week. Even more interesting is the story behind how they're made. It's like Tie-Dye, but actually cute! Hand Painted Taika Flats, Anthropologie
