2014 Color Of The Year…Radiant Orchid!

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

Fall Essentials

Everyday Fall Essentials, for the everyday woman…
Most of the women I work with as a personal stylist are everyday women. They are women who are looking to make the most out of their wardrobes from both a functional point of view and a financial point of view. As we’ve entered into the biggest season in fashion I have spent a lot of time in women’s closets and stores helping them create everyday Fall looks for when they want to be casual but still look good. Here are my top reccomendations…
A chunky cozy sweater, a great colored blouse or printed blouse, a couple of blazers (blazers are my ultimate reccomendation), a great fitting pair of denim (AG Stilts most unvirsally flattering), a cascading cardigan, an arsenal of solid long sleeve t-shirts, a pair of black leggings (Lysse leggings are my favorite), boots of any kind!, a great bag especially in a color, scarves to dress up those plain tee’s, a wristful of arm candy, and lastly make-up, this year it’s all about the dark lip and a neautral eye!
