So. Much. Color…. WHAT is happening to me?! If I’m going to be totally honest, I haven’t always been opposed to incorporating color into my wardrobe. Earth tones have always been appreciated. However, as long as I’ve been a blonde the color pink has made me CRINGE. I think it was mostly because the combo of hot pink + platinum hair made me feel “wannabe Barbie”. Flash forward to today and I’ve kind of done a total 180!
About a month ago I attended a pop-up consignment shop by Juli and Jeri where I found this hot pink, tuxedo-style dress. I realize the fact that it’s hot pink meant it stood out immediately, but there was something else about it that I was drawn to. What I appreciated most was the actual hue of pink, resembling a gemstone color. My first thought was that I wanted to pair it with my tall, blue velvet boots! If you live in the New Orleans area, you can catch this designer and vintage pop-up THIS WEEKEND (October 13-14) at 4858 Magazine Street from 11am-4pm.
Gemstone colors are taking over my friends. You can even see this trend looking through Zara’s Editorials where they are active in coordinating different gemstone colors together! Mixing and matching these bold colors is definitely a trend I’m going to make an effort to try more moving into Fall… if the season ever gets here! Scroll down below to shop some gemstone colored pieces I picked out 🙂
