Fall Color Story: Blue Awakening

Blue Awakening

After seasons of black, grey and brown for fall ready-to-wear, it is really nice to see more color! While forest green, burnt orange and purples are all the rage this season, we especially like the “new blues” ranging from navy to cobalt. Rich true shades that can be calming as well as hopeful, awakening us to a brighter future. These more cheerful, more intense hues look great with all of our neutrals we already have in our closets. What a better way to freshen up your favorite black dress than with a pair of cobalt blue booties! It’s a blue awakening!

Fall Color Story: Forest Green

Forest Green

Lately, we’ve been having a fascination with the color green. Not kelly green, not lime green or mint green (okay, we have been having a thing for mint green too).  No, we’re talking about forest green. You know, the kind of green that you can only find, well in a forest.  It’s a beautiful hue that looks sophisticated with black or dark grey. A nice compliment to cream and ivory. Richly regal with browns, especially cognac or chocolate.  It just simply looks fresh to us. What do you think?
