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
Spent a day with a client drowning in a sea of blue. I had never seen so many shades of blue in one wardrobe! My client, a beautiful 50-year-old women, recently divorced,reentering the work force and recovering from the after-math of hurricane Sandy (her home was devastated by the storm). With over $200,000 in storm damage, my client could not afford a whole new wardrobe and was looking for help to re-work what she already owned. Her typical uniform, jeans, a blue top, and blue or tan shoes! My recomendations…add pops of color with accessories…shoes, scarves, belts, handbags and invest in one great jacket that would work with both work and casual attire.
One of this season’s biggest trends..White On White! I am loving it! I especially adore it paired with other shades of white, tans , or gold! Add a P.O.C (pop of color) with a bright lipstick,a saturated hue of nail polish,or a bold eye!
