FASHION FRIDAY: FALL 2010 – AN AFFAIR WITH COLOR

Pardon me if today’s Fashion Friday feature sounds more like a book of love letters. I have a weakness for Autumn, no other season is better. The turning of autumn leaves gives me comfort and reaffirms that change is good. The crisp Fall breeze is a relief from sweltering Summer and offers the best clothing no other season could. In your wardrobe and in your home these color combos are a guaranteed bet, the effect they have on you will be one you will never forget…

Orange spice and graphite, it’s been a year since we’ve last connected. In Fall you are still first on my mind, the others are rejected.  Orange spice, your warm hue invigorates me and Graphite, you add instant sophistication when you appear. Chic, timeless, and dependable your style is so clear. Welcome back, I’ve missed you my dear.

…with a side of dijon is what I said to the server, but it doesn’t mean you play second fiddle. It’s just that you bring such strength that I can only handle a little. Your potent hue gets me notices when I walk into the room.  The men all pause and the ladies do, too! At home you signify style even if I have none. You’re so confident, when along side other colors, that you are an accent to every one. Oh, how I love a secure hue. Welcome back friend, I sure missed you.

Cranberry and Caviar what can I say. You make him fall to his knees with your seductive sway. The passion you display is only for mature eyes to see, your deep reddish hue even makes me a little flirty. How dare you look so sexy especially on a high gloss wall? You give me a license to thrill when we are together each fall.

I hope these love letters didn’t leave a rosy tint on your face. Knowing you would read them, I left it in good taste. Which colors do you love in the Fall? You can have many lovers without feeling guilty at all. You’re in good company so go ahead share with us. I promise we won’t judge you on your color lusts…

SPECIAL GUEST: CHIC CHOCOLATE

Today’s Fashion Friday post is brought to you by Sondra of Chic Chocolate. Creatively chic and soulfully styled, Chic Chocolate is a top fashion resource for fashionistas, stylistas, and urbanistas in Washington, DC and beyond. She graciously accepted my Room to Runway Challenge by presenting these amazing fashion and decor matchups using two of Fall 2010’s hottest colors.

One way to have fun this fall is to indulge in feathers. You will find soft, wispy ostrich feathers on everything from headboards, skirts, shoes, and even lingerie. Accessorize your home with feathers by adding accent pillows dyed in scrumptious colors of chartreuse and fuchsia. Find these and more at Horchow.com or Calypso St. Barth.

Black and gold is a classic color combination that signifies tremendous wealth and opulence. Making brazen appearances on the runway and in our rooms, get a wild hair and try a golden fixture or a molten 24K dress.

According to a recent Pantone report, some of the hottest colors for Fall 2010 will be “Lipstick Red” and “Orchid Purple.” Both colors were dominate on the runway of designer Carlos Miele Fall 2010 RTW Collection. Reds and purples signify deep passion. Not just relegated to clothing, be daring enough to try these emotionally charged colors in your home decor as accents in a neutral room.

Recording artist, Prince, was the inspiration for Balmain’s Fall 2010 RTW Collection. A regal color, purple and its various hues, look fantastic on just about any complexion and shockingly beautiful in your home.  Add a spark of purple, ultraviolet, aubergine, or eggplant to your home as seen in this festive table setting.

How will you incorporate these hot Fall colors in your home and/or wardrobe?

FASHION FRIDAY: CHAMPAGNE ON THE BEACH

Last night my husband and I shared our daydream of a vacation without the children. His dream took us to the French Riviera, my daydream didn’t require much other than champagne and a beach. Once his daydream turned into a real slumber, my mind drifted to South Beach’s most luxurious hotel, The Tides. Designed by present-day legend, Kelly Wearstler, the decor has a monochromatic palette of neutral hues and muted metallics much like pieces in Tory Burch’s Summer/PreFall 2010 Collection.

[1.] Yarn Ziron Dress/Tory Burch  [2.] Percy 2 Sequin High Wedge/Tory Burch  [3.]Keswick Caning Wide Bangle/Kate Spade  [4.] Tides Suite/The Tides South Beach

Wanting to “explore the mix of embellishment and texture, of unexpected pairings like sequins with chunky knits or light tweeds” Tory’s inspiration behind her line sounds like a description of The Tides’ interior. Just add the words relaxation and elegance, sand and surf…there is no better combination.

The bangle (#3) from Kate Spade has an intricate golden weave pattern inspired by french bistro chairs. Reminds you of the same pattern seen in the (#4) vintage dining set…experiencing a little déjà vu?

There are two more combinations I think you will enjoy…

[1.] Ensemble from Tory Burch Spring 2010 Collection [2.] Ballet Flat/Tory Burch [3.] Link Bracelet/Tory Burch  [4.] Premier Oceanfront Suite/The Tides South Beach
[1.] Linen bustier dress/J.Crew [2.] Graphic cut-work sandal/Karen Millen [3.] Mixed pavé cable link bracelet/J.Crew  [4.] Coral Suite/The Tides South Beach
Is anyone else as smitten as I am with champagne hues and luxurious beach interiors? Have you ever vistied The Tides?

SPECIAL GUEST: THE PEACH PROXY

Today’s Fashion Friday post is brought to you by Kelli Flournoy of The Peach Proxy.  Her much anticipated blog has recently gone live and shows the everyday fashionista how to transform her wardrobe into a unique expression of the latest trends. She graciously accepted my runway to room challenge with this post entitled Double-Duty Denim. Please welcome Kelli to the blogosphere!
