A Roman Rendezvous

This season we are being whisked away to the Eternal City.. the inspiration behind our "From Rome, With Love" Spring line that just launched last week.

I know I must say this every time there is a new launch.. but there is SO MUCH TO LOVE in all these collections.. and I know that both Chloes and Isabels will agree!

Will you take a quick virtual trip to Rome with me?

SPOTLIGHT: Bella Fiore

Our first stop is the Palazzo Colonna, a famous palace in the heart of Rome and the inspiration behind our Bella Fiore mini-collection. These pieces are so perfect for Spring! Set in romantic antique gold plating, these pieces dazzle in rose quartz + serenity blue hues (Pantone's colors of the year!), crystal fan accents and pearlized ivory florals.

Gorgeous statement pieces..

Pantone Color Q&A

I had no idea what the "Pantone Color of the Year" meant until recently!

What is the Pantone Color of the Year?

From Wikepedia: Annually, Pantone declares a particular color "Color of the Year". Twice a year the Pantone Inc. company hosts, in a European capital, a secret meeting of representatives from various nations' color standards groups. After two days of presentations and debate, they choose a color for the following year.

You will notice that these colors tend to influence the fashion and consumer trends for the year. For the first time, the blending of two shades – Rose Quartz and Serenity were chosen as the PANTONE Color of 2016.

Why Rose Quartz and Serenity?

From pantone.com: As consumers seek mindfulness and well-being as an antidote to modern day stresses, welcoming colors that psychologically fulfill our yearning for reassurance and security are becoming more prominent. Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.

Looking for March hostesses

I don't have many open dates left in March, but I do want to give you all a chance to earn this hostess exclusive set for FREE when you host a $1k pop-up. I'm so excited to see what the blue sandstone looks like in person.. and I love that BOTH of these convertible pieces!
