    Why We Love Spring Colors

    Last updated 6 days ago

    Happy Spring! And yes it's that time again... Time to pack up the sweaters and make room for more tanks and sundresses! Time to shop for cheerier and fun new colors! Here are a few of our favorites  (and why we love them so much) from Pantone that we'll definitely be on the lookout for this season!

    The lead color for women for the season, Aquamarine is an airy blue with a dreamy feel. Cool and calming, ethereal Aquamarine is a shade with a wet and watery feel. Open and expansive, this restful blue also acts as a stress reducer. (Show off the perfect blue in this Ema Savahl painted dress)

    Fresh and clarifying, cool and refreshing, Lucite Green has a minty glow. Light in weight and also in tone, it seems almost transparent. (Try out this abstract halter from Nicole Miller for a taste of this sweet hue)

    Aptly named, Strawberry Ice is suggestive of a cooling and refreshing delicacy, yet its warmth as a color is quite appealing. Strawberry Ice is a confection color that evokes a feeling of being “in the pink,” emitting a flattering and healthy glow. (Get ready for your spring fling in this printed Meghan Fabulous maxi dress!)

    Spontaneous and gregarious, Tangerine is a juicy orange shade that is energizing, yet not jarring to the eye. Versatile Tangerine is striking enough to stand on its own and adds vitality to a printed pattern. (We love this peachy tunic by Meghan Fabulous as a chic cover-up or fun frock this season)

    Glacier Gray is an unobtrusive gray that contrasts and enhances; bouncing off other shades without taking away from them as it slips into the background to allow other colors to take center stage. (Check out this printed Sentimental bandage dress for a hint of gray)

     

    So what's your favorite color this season?

    Black vs. Nude Shoes For Your Formal Gown

    Last updated 13 days ago

    ((Pin for later))

     

    Choosing the right shoes for your formal gown is either a snap decision or a complicated discussion. While it's usually easy to tell if you should wear black shoes with your black gown, what the heck do you pair with purple or a multi-color sequin gown?

    Why we love black shoes

    Black shoes go with (almost) everything and that is probably why they are so popular. They bring together outfits for an ultra chic look but they also blend to the background allowing your gown to pop.  

    While black sounds like a pretty straight forward color but you'd be surprised. Change it up with black glitter, pretty stones, silver sparkles or gold accents to pump up those pumps!

    When to choose black shoes: With nearly any color except pastels and light earth tones unless black is repeated in a pattern or print.

    Why we love nude shoes

    Let me count the ways! Skin colored shoes blend in with your natural coloring so nude heels make your legs appear longer simply by not cutting you off at the ankle. Not to mention your outfit will stand out because the lighter shoes won't overpower the look.  

    Nude shoes should go with your skin tone so try a light beige or cream if you're fair or a shade of tan or brown if you're darker. Some designers, like Christian Louboutin, sell the same shoe in several shades of 'nude' so you can find your perfect pair. However, don't worry about matching exactly! You don't want to blend in completely and loose the shoe; Plus the effect of elongating your leg will still work even if you're a couple shades off!

    When to choose nude/light shoes: With earth tones, whites, brights and pastels. Also colors like blue, red, yellow and light purple when black might be too dark to accessorize with.
