Summer Brights



The weeks before the Spring/Summer collections are unveiled is always an anxious time for me. As anyone who has seen The Devil Wears Prada knows, that "cerulean blue" that shows up on the runway will inevitably make it into every Gap. So, if Miuccia had decided to go with pastels for Spring/Summer, I would be avoiding every store in New York or risk looking like I have jaundice for the season.

Well, apparently, Ms Prada heard my prayers, because she was all about brights and vivid tones for both Miu Miu and Prada this Summer. Not only do I love the color schemes for both of these labels, I actually have lots in my closet that already fits the trend.

Not surprisingly, most of the color in my closet comes from my shoes . . . 







(Sorry for the lack of posts over the past few months! Life has been extremely busy. I was taking classes, I moved, started a new job, went to Paris, painted my apartment . . . you get the idea. The good news is that I have lots of posts in the works and lots of cool new fashion stuff to share!)
