The Future is So Bright -Gotta Wear Shades!

Welcome to another mobile blog post. I have had a lot of issues with this iPhone app so hoping they will upgrade it soon so I can blog more!
So the other day while shopping (for a gift, not for myself) I came across displays in Bloomies for the coming season's Brights. The color of the year Tangerine Tango is cropping up in store windows everywhere.
Kelly Greens, Bright Blues are the new "it colors." But I am not so sure I want to be Spring's "It Girl." Maybe if I lived in LA or Florida, but as a hard core New Yorker I am reluctant to give up the Costume de rigueur of head to toe black. I'm afraid of color like some people are afraid of snakes! Maybe it's because I went to an art school where "goth was the new preppy"? Or is it just functional to wear dark colors when you live in a filthy city? Most definitely wearing all black makes you five pounds thinner! So regardless of what the magazines will be promoting, I'm not buying it, or anything else for that matter as I am committed to my own bright future of not buying new clothes or shoes for the next three months! But I think I may need some new shades( if I were to shop, I would click here), those colors hurt my eyes!


  1. I used to be afraid of colors too, they're hard to mange.
    Fashion though, in my opinion, is about detail.
    If you have a Tangirine dress, the boots,
    Watch earrings, and purse to match, you're on it.
    Colors force you to explore with accessories,
    They also limit repetition. They're challenging but
    Worth it.

    1. sometimes I think, an accessory like a bright pairs or pumps, or a belt may be a good way to explore the trend without fully embracing it!

  2. Although I was a black-wearing (though not goth) art school student, I've branched out into color over the years. I don't know that I'm brave enough to wear bright color head-to-toe, but a pop here and there would be fine. BTW, the shape of that mannequin in the orange dress is freaking me out... her breasts are in her armpits.
