"Lemon-Lime You'll Be Fine!"

Modal Silk Interlock Dress Marc by Marc Jacobs

One of my best friends is a fourth grade teacher and he asked his kids to write an essay about anything they think they're an expert on. Happily for me, one girl chose to write about fashion and he let me read it after he corrected it. It gave me hope for future fashionistas everywhere. She was very concerned with matching colors for example if you're wearing a lemon colored top then you should be wearing lime colored shorts. If you're ten this will make you a style star. If you're older it might be taking it a bit too far.

But she's definitely right about the lemon colors. I'm currently obsessed with ANY shade of yellow like the above Marc dress or the Wendy Woven Platform Sandals by Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent, both at Shop Bop.

If you want to go the lime route I suggest the bright shade in small doses like Kate Spade's Clinton St., - Tayrn Vachetta French wallet. It's bright, super preppy and you'll fit right in walking around the Back Bay. Or, if you're still in high school, you could get this Chanel knock off by Juicy Couture and be the queen bee just like my favorite fourth grader.

I like the thought of an older woman working the lemon and lime combo...it's what I imagine Miami to look like!

Interesting article on the Valentino expansion, I imagine that the company will be expanding into not just Asia but other oil rich countries like Russia and Brazil!

I'll be interested to see how the brand translates into a younger more accessible collection...mmmm

Yes! I love yellow! It's my new favorite color. I'm a little scared to go the lime route but lemon is definitely in. The Marc dress is lovely.
