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

We’ve all done it, ran out the door not looking our best! Whether its dropping the kids at school, running errands after the gym, or just frankly having a lazy! But here’s what’s going to have you looking regardless…keep your attire updated and relevant! To me there is nothing worse then seeing a 40 something running around in her “PINK” ensemble and the so yesterday UGG boots! If you’re in your teens or early 20’s this look is somewhat acceptable, but otherwise, my advice steer clear! Opt for richer (and I don’t mean more expensive!), more sophisticated items! A stylish sweatshirt, simple black leggings, fashionable fun sneakers (which are so in), a simple cross body bag, keep the make-up light with mascara and a tinted lip moisturizer! I promise people will turn heads, but this time not for the wrong reasons!
