Pantone has officially announced the color of 2014…Radiant Orchid! Here is what Pantone’s executive team had to say about its choice: “An enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health. It is a captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm.” What do you think of it? Yay or Nay? I personally think it’s a vivid, happy shade that will flatter all skin tones & hair colors, and will can a dose of fun to interiors (my bedroom is orchid, it’s such a beautiful color!) and design elements in general. If this color makes you nervous try small pops at a time…a manicure or pedicure. a scarf with just a hint, or go a little bolder with a shoe or purse, or go full on and wear an orchid leather dress! Try this gorgeous shade, I promise it will have you looking good! xo Robin
Alright, I confess I’ve been known to borrow, alright steal, from mens closets! It all started way back when with an ex-boyfriends flannel shirt and lead to cable sweaters, jackets, chunky watches, jeans, and white button-ups, to name a few (oh yeah, and a rock t-shirt or two)! I guess that why I’m so excited to say menswear inspired fashion is so big for this Fall! Alright, it might remind you of an ex or two but go ahead and get inspired by that well dressed man in your life! Shop your guys closet for an updated look (this statememnt comes with a disclaimer though! ONLY IF HE HAS STYLE!). Think pinstripes, plaids, blazers, oxfords, oversized watches, smoking slippers, tailored trousers, and fedoras, but styled with a chic, feminine twist.
Happy Aprl 1st! We have officially entered the rainy season! How are you going to stay looking good during the April showers? To me there is nothing like a great trench coat, fun rubber boots (or rubber shoes like the pink Tory Burch ballet flats pictured below), and a unique umbrella to keep you dry, and updated. In outerwear it is so important to find pieces that represent your style and who you are…I’m the girl all the way to the right, who are you??
