This was a tough one for me. As beautiful as this shade is, it’s not a color I use in my personal palettes often and isn’t what you typically see for autumn. However, I did find some beautiful items in this shade of vibrant purple orchid from the Pantone’s Fall 2010 color forecast. I adore this purple floating jewel necklace with a neutral cocktail dress or this slouchy tee with dark skinny jeans, flats and a charcoal gray knit beret.
Tomorrow I’ll have a Lagoon collection for you tomorrow! Lots of mellow turquoise blue items.
So, today is the first color in my Pantone’s Fall 2010 color forecast series that I have been a little less faithful to the character of the color. Today is Lipstick Red and instead of going sultry and sassy, I took is to a more autumnal place by pairing it with browns and warm beige. I love the idea of bringing a little red into a shirt dress by tying a lipstick red ribbon around your waist, or even securing a ponytail with a simple red ribbon (bonus points if it’s a red velvet ribbon).
I apologize for a pricier collection today. I’ll try to bring you some deals next week (though that handmade leather bag is quite a deal at $75).
On Monday I’ll be bringing you a sophisticated Purple Orchid collection!
Yummy! Today’s installment of my Pantone Fall 2010 forecast series is “Living Coral”! And I have to say, I love this color. For autumn I love it paired with gold or in wool. I think it’s a wonderful way to bring some pop to the usual rich, warm pallets of fall and see it mixing in with rustic oranges, reds and browns beautifully (doesn’t that sounds like the most gorgeous fall wedding palette?).
There were SO many items I wanted to include in this collection and I packed as many in as I could. Ultimately I couldn’t resist including that coral, diamond and 18k gold ring, despite the hefty price tag.
Tomorrow’s color is Lipstick Red! I’m doing my own take on it and I’m pretty excited about this one.
Today’s installment in my Pantone’s Fall 2010 color forecast post series I bring you Golden Glow. Next to yesterday’s Endive this is a much easier to grasp hue for autumn. It reminds me of lanterns, pumpkins and warm spiced orange cider. I love this color in knit hats, scarves and gloves and in soft leathers. For the home this shade would be beautiful as a knit or wool throw and of course in fall mums for the garden and table.
Did I mention, it’s also about the shade of our dog’s orange eyes? He’s so fashion forward.
Tomorrow’s color is “Living Coral”. I’ve already started putting it together and it should be lovely. Stay tuned!
