The Tangerine Files

Summer is all about color but making brights more sophisticated than fun can sometimes be tricky. While coral is perfect for summer weddings and the beach where you want a bright head-turning look, a more subdued tangerine can be more sophisticated whether head to toe or as an accent piece, separate or accessory.

Opposed to coral that looks fantastic with white, tangerine is an excellent way to liven neutrals and earthy tones. The result is a easy, sophisticated combination with the perfect amount of color.
Have a lovely day everyone :)

..A White Lace Summer..

A bright white dress is already the ultimate compliment to sun-kissed skin, what to take the look to the height of chic? Add battenburg lace, lace overlays, cutouts and insets.... oh, and those three little words:

There is surely soon to be a bounty of white lace dresses available in stores- be sure that the one you choose has a defined waist seam so your figure will always remain intact and you will not look a size larger.

Also remember white that dresses love brown belts. If you prefer to wear a cardigan with your dress, yellow and pistachio keep the look cool and breezy, while thin black strappy shoes and a red cardigan will help you channel la dolce vita!
