fall/winter 2011/12 trends..... jewel tones

The palette has moved on from summer's acid brights and paintbox pops of colour into the sumptuous realm of jewel tones for autumn/winter 2011-12.

With names like amethyst, sapphire, emerald, ruby, garnet and citrine - these hues have the power to make you feel rich and sophisticated.
While there was plenty of black to be seen on the catwalks, it was peppered with striking colours that dazzled in their desirability, just like real-life gems. For maximum impact, wear one colour from head-to-toe, shades of jade and rich ruby red stand out best.
If that's too much, let your accessories do the sparkling, with clutch bags or ladylike heels in precious tones.

  2. Hi there my dear friend!!!

    You are back, well you have been back, and it makes me happy to read you writing about fashion and the genre of color and flow...



  3. Hello The Seeker !

    Estamos sempre muito bem informados sobre a moda neste espaço ! Obrigada pelas informações !


  4. I am a new follower of your blog thru GFC and RSS Feed. I could not follow on FB because of a FB blog hop 2 weeks ago. I was "liking" away and I think I got to 10 sites then all of a sudden a box pops up saying I am spamming and they suspended my FB for 15 days! I am hoping today will be 15. It is if you count the weekends. I don't know because I can't get anyone to answer my questions. The people who run FB are very rude! At least answer the emails that are urgent. I lost alot of entries into contests along with not being able to follow anyone on FB or Networked Blogs. And for what??? Because I was on a FB only blog hop and we all signed up so that means you gave everyone permission to come over. That was something that was none of their business. They have criminals using the internet for porn and all kinds of dirty crap and they pick on a blogger??? Anyway, I am keeping a list of the bloggers who are going ahead and following FB now so they don't have to come back and once it is lifted I will go and follow all of you back. Or you can wait and let me follow you first. Whatever makes you comfortable is fine. Thanks for your help and have a great weekend.


  5. Yes there should realize the reader to RSS my feed to RSS commentary, quite simply

  7. Fashion Week! Love it! I feel strongly Fashion Week should be a mandatory vacation week for all fashionistas and fashionistos. ;-)

    I'm in love with the return to jewel tones; not so sure about the 60s/70s trends and the menswear, but I'm keeping an open mind.

    I found you via The Lady Bloggers Society. :-)

  8. I'm happy when you have come to comment on my blog....I'm sad when I come over and find you haven't been posting...

    Hope everything is OK with you - that you are "finding" what you are "seeking" and will soon be posting SOMEwhere about SOMEthing.
