Very proud of my ballerina girls and a performance that had major cuteness overload! Had to brag on them!

Leatrice Eiseman, Pantone Color Institute’s executive director, describes the color as “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.”
Still, there are many ways to incorporate this trend to your style in tasteful ways. Here are some ideas for those of you who love, kinda sorta like, or dislike the trending color.
If you LOVE:
Commit to a full piece- a blouse, skirt, or dress. A bold color like this looks best with neutral colors or basic prints.
If you’re KINDA SORTA:
Just add a touch of Radiant Orchid using accessorizes. Paint your nails, throw on a scarf, add a necklace or ring. Or, work with colors around that hue- lavender, powder pink, etc.
If you HATE:
If this color is just not rocking your world, don’t do it! Fashion is fun, wear what makes you feel great, comfortable, and true to your personal style, not just because “everyone else is doing it.” 🙂
In the spirit of Valentine’s Day…
…here are some quick tips to take your casual look to dressy with a simple switch of a shoe and tie.
For a nice casual look: pick a solid sweater that can layer over a button up with some kind of print. Wear a shoe that compliments a neutral color in your printed top.
To dress it up: Switch out the shoes for a dressier pair, and add a tie to the printed top- but tucked behind the sweater. If your overall look has more muted colors, try adding a subtle pop of color with the tie. Simple and quick.

And finally, who can resist a photo booth?? Not us!
Denise Berry attended an amazing fashion show during San Francisco’s fashion week. I wanted to style her in something fun, classy, and high fashion.
I love this powder blue fit and flare dress. The color looks great with her skin tone, and the cut-out paneling gives the dress just enough edge yet still being very feminine. The heels are a black patent peep-toe platforms by Guess. Since the dress is a statement in itself, I wanted to keep the jewelry minimal; so I chose medium sized simple diamond earrings. Finishing off her look with a sleek high bun compliments the style of the entire outfit.
I really like the full skater skirts that are in trend right now. They are easy to pair with pretty much any top. Usually i’ll wear this top casually with jeans or shorts but wanted to try it out with a fuller skirt.
