Spring 2013: The "In"Colors Part 2

Hi everyone!
If you haven't already, you should check out this post where I posted pictures and talked a little bit about the first five of ten spring colors. At the end I promised that the rest of the colors would be coming in a second post, so here they are: African Violet, Linen, Poppy Red, Nectarine, and my personal favourite, Monaco Blue.

African Violet
Unfortunately, I couldn't find a picture of any celebrities rocking the African Violet on the red carpet, but Badgley Mischka used the color in their 2013 Spring Collection.


  The color Linen varies a bit from on the runway at Tracy Reese and on the red carpet on Amy Adams, but I like both versions and Amy Adams' dress is one of my favourites from the 2013 Award Season so far.

Monaco Blue:
 Like I said before, Monaco Blue is my favourite of the Spring Colors and I am loving both of these dresses. Above is a Herve Leger and to the left is Amanda Seyfried in a Zac Posen.

Poppy Red:
  To me, red is such a fun color and I love this shade of it.  It is seen on the Micheal Kors runway above, and on Jennifer Lawrence at the Golden Globes to the left.

 I'm not usually a fan of orange, but some shades I really like. Nectarine  is  like a love-hate orange for me- I love it on Jessica Alba, but not so much on the model at the Caroline Herrera show above.

So that's it for the Spring 2013 colors, but there are plenty of other trends that I love for spring (and some that I hate) so you might see something on that soon. I would love to get some comments on what colors you like best- my favs are Monaco Blue and Poppy Red- and what else you would like to see in the future. On the blog I mean, but if you want to tell me what colors you would pick for Spring 2014, go right ahead.

Spring 2013: The "In" Colors Part 1

If you know anything about fashion, you know that things go in and out of style, sometimes quicker than you want it to. This include things like hair and clothes, and while it might be better off that things are left in the past (think 80's hairstyles) it can be fun to pull things from long ago. But today's post isn't about retro or vintage clothing, it's about the colors that are in right now.

In case you didn't know, Pantone is a corporation that decides what colors will be in for each season. My first thought was, Why should a random corporation decide what will be fashionable?. So I did some research, and I found out that a lot more meetings, presentations, and hard work go in to determining what people would be wearing than you would think. The decisions are also based on what designers are putting out on the runway. So, here are five of the ten Spring 2013 colors:


Emerald is the 2013 color of not just spring, but the whole year.
Above is a  Burberry Kickback Lace Trench Coat, and to the left is Solange Knowles at the 2013 Grammy Awards.

Dusk Blue:
 Dusk Blue is another trending color in Spring 2013. Above is a Zac Posen dress from his 2013 Ready To Wear collection, and to the left is Zooey Deschanel at the 2012 Emmy Awards.
Tender Shoots:

 Tender Shoots is a yellowish-green color that was seen above on Dianne von Fürstenberg's runways and on Nicki Minaj (left) at the American Music Awards in 2012.

Grayed Jade:
Grayed Jade was seen on the Elie Saab runway (above), as well as on the left on Jessica Chastain at the Golden Globe Awards.

Lemon Zest:

Lemon Zest is the last color of this post, with a Lemon Zest dress above on the DKNY runway and one on Chloë Grace Moretz at the 2013 People's Choice Awards on the left.

I will be doing the same thing for the other five Spring 2013 colors in the next post, but if you have any other posts you would like to see, or any other comment I would love to read it!

Hey Everyone!

This is my first post, and I thought I should start of by telling you who I am and what I want to be posting in a nutshell. My name is Taylor and I live in a small town. In most girl's dictionaries small town means not a lot of  good shopping or style inspiration. I created this blog because I want to express the way I feel about fashion to the world- or the few people that will ever actually see this. I love clothes, accessories, makeup and hair and would like to write about each of them. So yeah, that's about all I can think of to tell you right now, I have a few ideas for some posts, but if you want to comment with some ideas that would be amazing.
