Current Obsession: Black & Blush

Friday, November 19th, 2010
Black & Blush

I can’t get over how often I see this color combination these days–and though I’m inclined to say that blush is the new black, my fashion instincts say that black will never be replaced, but it will most definitely be enhanced by this ultra-feminine light pink hue.

Here, I’ve picked out a handful of pieces (all under $50!) to show just how great this color pairing is. When I’m dressing up my favorite black skirt or skinny black dress pants, I usually opt for a bright color, like royal blue or bright purple, to offset so much black, which is ideal for a girls’ night out. However, I view blush as a more office-friendly hue that would do double duty for a date night because it’s feminine and romantic, especially when presented in satiny fabrics with ruffles, bows and lace.

Though I didn’t choose these pieces to necessarily be paired together, as they’re shown, I love the middle combination of the lace cutout skirt with the ruched black top. I’m using that look as inspiration for a holiday party outfit this season–it’d be a great alternative to the typical red, gold or silver picks for which I would normally reach.

As always, remember to balance out the ruffly, femme details of a top by wearing black bottoms with straighter, crisp lines. Or vice versa if you go for a layered skirt.

Happy Shopping!

Pink Picks

Here are a couple more pink picks to check out! It’s amazing to me how many companies get involved in breast cancer awareness, and we can only hope that it’ll help women actively seek out the information and the help they need to stay healthy.

Everything pictured is $60 and under. I especially LOVE the fortune cookies–they would make a great gift!

Pink Picks for October

Happy Friday Everyone!

It’s really hard to only choose ONE “Pink Pick” every Friday because there’s just so many! Check out all of the amazing products that benefit breast cancer research and awareness that I found through Polyvore!

It’s impossible not to find something stylish that will also help support a great cause. These all range in price from a few dollars to over $100, so there’s something to fit every budget.

Whichever Pink Pick you choose…wear it with pride!

Pink Picks for Breast Cancer Awareness

Wednesday, October 13th, 2010

As if you don’t have enough of a reason to shop at Kohl’s, here’s another one:

Vera Wang has designed adorable pink products, including coin purses, t-shirts, makeup bags, gloves and more exclusively for Kohl’s, and “100% of the net profit will be donated to support the fight against breast cancer.” All items are either $5 or $10, and they’ve got some really cute options! The coin purses are my favorite, but I also love the plaid t-shirt and boyshorts set.

In my opinion, the best way to support a great cause is by donating your time and energy, like raising money to participate in a 5K that benefits breast cancer awareness. Unfortunately, that’s not an option for all of us, so it’s great that designers like Vera Wang and companies like Kohl’s are teaming up to bring attention to a deadly disease while giving shoppers a chance to donate.

The collection is only sold online and in Kohl’s stores in Wisconsin. Go get your hands on some great pink gear!
