Wine, Velvet and Florals, Oh My!

I had you at wine, didn’t I? In my post on Mauve last week, I had the hardest time limiting myself to talking about just one color. Since I’ve been seeing so many great color combos, such as mauve and wine, and interesting trends this fall, this week, I’m featuring 3 fall 2017 trends! Wine! Yep, I love to drink it and wear it! While wine as a fashion color doesn’t exactly sound new, it actually is. While the hue’s big sister, burgundy, is closer to purple and has been popular a few autumns now, wine is more red.

How to Wear Mauve for Fall

When I featured this mauve coat in a post about color combinations, I hadn’t really thought about how popular the color is this season. The fashion industry has been touting pink as a big trend for the past several seasons, and this season Pantone (the color experts) is calling it “ballet slipper pink.” It’s a very, very, very light shade of pink, but it seems to hint (to my eye) at being mauve with massive amounts of white added to it.

I’m Just Not Feeling It Today

With all the devastation our country and its surrounding countries are facing with the hurricanes, earthquakes, recent floods and wild fires, I just don’t feel right reporting on fashion this week. If feels callous and irresponsible for me to be telling you what’s new to buy this fall season when so many are without their homes or fighting to save them. I am praying for all. Yes, of course society dictates we must wear clothes, and yes, I love clothes and fashion, but so many are fighting for simple clothing (for protection from the elements,) food and shelter that fashion [..] read more

Styling a New Friend

A few weeks ago, I told you all about how I have to say goodbye to an old friend, my white linen safari jacket I purchased in Paris. As sad as I am about retiring the piece, I’m very excited about my new friend, my white linen blazer from Theory. Also in the last post, I promised I’d show you how I’m now styling my new jacket. As we are slowly sliding into fall, it doesn’t seem very timely to be making outfits with a white linen jacket, but if I wait until spring, I’ll forget to post about it, [..] read more
