Mimosa … it’s the color for 2009

Rumor has it (NY Fashion Week and the Pantone Fall 2009 color forecast) that colors will be muted rather than the bright, flashy metallics and jeweled tones that we’ve been seeing for a couple of seasons. I’m fine with going back to the basic classic colors. I could live in all black with touches of (blue) red and white for that matter. Added bonus, you don’t have to buy as many clothes – you can mix and match with accessories and wear the same basic suits.

Accessorize, accessorize, accessorize … it’s going to be your mantra for fall shopping! The disadvantage? If you have coloring like mine and you don’t look good in muted tones. Well, black and white are going to be your favorite colors again.



And the color of the year? Mimosa and I quote ….

“Best illustrated by the abundant flowers of the Mimosa tree and the sparkle of the brilliantly hued cocktail, the 2009 color of the year represents the hopeful and radiant characteristics associated with the color yellow. Mimosa is a versatile shade that coordinates with any other color, has appeal for men and women and translates to both fashion and interiors.”

Yes it certainly is a vibrant hue.

Fall Handbag Sale at Kate Spade 20% Off! Orange=the new black

Oh dear I wish I could stay off the Kate Spade web site. I can resist anything but temptation as they say. You know I say that but I don’t really mean it. And I don’t even have a full-time job right now for Pete’s sake. BTW if anyone you know needs a blogger … hey I can blog about just about anything. 

Well today I didn’t even stay on the handbag pages I went to the home pages, the accessories and the shoes pages. Crying out loud.

Love this bag. Orange is the new black. Seriously. Everything this season is orange. I love it!

I mistakenly then went to the shoes pages and the home pages and the accessories and well … got lost for a long, long time. Heavy sigh. Do you love polka dots? Check out these lovely plates. They come in four delectable series of polka dot shades. I think the green are my favorites. But the red ones. Hmmmm.

Black and white? Heavy, heavy sigh. So many choices, so little time and cold, hard cash! Shop on!
