Fashion Fix: Silver Peony

October 28, 2010

Thanks to the release of Pantone’s famous color report, I am excited to introduce one of Spring/Summer 2011 colors: Silver Peony.

Silver Peony is a very pale shade of pink that is infused with a few gray tones. This is one of the new “nude hues” which when paired with this season’s new palette, will make everyone’s jaw drop. Pairing this with another neutral or a vivid hue will be really beautiful.

Enjoy this pink!

Fashion Fix: Into the Wild

October 21, 2010

Fashion trends for Spring 2011 have been all kinds of fun!  One particular trend that I am super excited about is the inspiration designers are drawing from nature.  Now if you are not a big nature person (like me) then you may be thinking, “Why would I want to wear something that looks like nature?”  Well believe me, these new styles are fashion forward, trendy, and absolutely fabulous!

Fashion Fix: Orange!

October 14, 2010

One of the sweetest color trends to drop this upcoming Spring 2011 is orange. Whether persimmon, amber or burnt this color has shown up in many designers spring collections at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.  You can wear an entire outfit in this bright hue or simply dress up your look with great accessories.

Here’s a little bright inspiration for everything orange!

I Fancy That

Inspired Intern: Diamonds

October 7, 2010

When I think of Diamonds, I think of luxury and beauty, clarity and sparkle.  It’s about making a statement with the simplest stone.  It was Marilyn Monroe that said, “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend,” and boy was she right!  There is just something about those crystal-clear stones that just bring a big smile to your face.  Makes you giddy, and happy all over.
