Did you know that blue is the most popular color and orange is the least popular? Or when one says, “I’m having a purple patch” it means a period of good fortune?
With colors in fashion, it seems that most of us like to go with what we know – tried-and-true seems the best approach. Or is it? Let’s explore.
Who said that jeans have to be blue? Here’s stylish Kate Middleton in brightly colored skinny jeans paired with a classic, preppy navy blazer.
Here’s a smashing all-white gown with a flash of color that’s repeated in an evening bag. A great idea for all of us.
Nothing can energize one’s mind like a red blazer or jacket that goes well with black pants and heels or a snappy black pleated skirt and tights.
Who made the “black handbag” rule? A vibrant color makes a great fashion statement and gets attention.
MAY WE SUGGEST…
An Adea camisole in a color you’ve never tried before. For starters take a look at emerald, lilac or oxblood. Isn’t it time you played with color?

I just read an article that sounded – to me at least – like “a canary in a coal mine” or an early warning of danger. This piece, written by Joe Pompeo, appeared in the May 2020 issue of Vanity Fair magazine with the title “The British Tabloid Invasion” and a subtitle that read, “How the Daily Mail is conquering American gossip.”

Apparently the good old U.S. is a nation of “not great” sleepers. Really? And I thought I was the only one! According to a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention it was revealed that one out of three Americans are chronically sleep-deprived. Yikes!

I think we’re all taken by the incredible mystique of the famous French fashion house, Hermès that has been with us for two centuries and is still owned and operated by the same family. From its beginnings in fine equestrian leather goods, they are – in the tumultuous year 2020 – best known for their handbags and many other items.
My image of Hermès has always been rarified products at equally rarified prices so imagine my surprise when I recently received a very stylish publication of theirs in the mail.
