Stalking the Prettiest of Pretties
So Pantone have released their key colour trends for Spring/Summer 2012. Considering Pantone predict the key colours year on year (their colour of 2011 was honeysuckle,) it’s always worth paying attention. The inspiration boards over the next couple weeks will feature this seasons shades.
First off: Tangerine Tango. I was planing on doing an orange and oatmeal board anyway (I have been thinking about pumpkins a lot) so I was delighted to see this on the list. Orange is one of those colours that I just could not imagine working with a year ago, but now I think it can be great. The key, I feel , is using it as a pop and ensuring that the textures are quality.
While in London at the weekend I went to Harrods. While in Harrods I went to the shoe rooms. While in the shoe rooms I saw some stunning shoes. Including some beautiful Rene Caovilla designs.
These are absolutely gorgeous. I can’t actually find a price for them online and I was much too intimidated to ask whilst in Harrods. (No, no darling, they didn’t have a sticky white label on the bottom!) But I’ve found other Rene Caovilla shoes in Bergorf Goodman for about $1,300.
But you have to see them in person. They are a whole other level of glamour.
Is it just here, or has Autumn practically erupted over the last couple of weeks? Gone are the broken promises of a sweltering Summer, replaced by the vibrant leaves and blustery winds of September. Autumn is actually my favourite season, partly because of my birthday (it’s tomorrow if you wanted to send me a pressie!) but mostly because of all the delicious sights, scents and flavours that it brings.
Also, it’s back-to-school time and I’m a geek.
Anyway, I thought it was the perfect time to bring some sophisticated September palates to Only Gorgeous Weddings, beginning with this golden board:
Valentino dress, $3,490
Kate Spade floral pumps, $325
Jimmy Choo jewel sandals, $895

I love the soft tonal mixture of honey and wheat. Also, add it to some oats and you’ll have a pretty nice breakfast!
How do you like the new season? What are the colours you’re loving?
I’ll have some brighter offerings for you next week!
