Fashion Friday:Statement Color

Honey-colored Satchel -Meet #9 & #10

on the Top Ten List of Items to Look For in my closet as I'm organizing the Fall/Winter Wardrobe.

#9 = Something Glittery/Shiney :)

#10 = Statement Color

Choosing statement color over statement jewelry is the way I tailor fashion to my own predilections.

Granted this over-sized pocketbook was not already in the closet, but as I was *weeding*the closet, I began to see the colors in a different way.

Leonardo came to mind.... da Vinci, not Caprio.

There are three classes of people:

those who see, those who see when they are shown, those who do not see.

This fashion report is teaching me to see.

A warmer, more subdued Honey Yellow carries the 2009
color of the year, PANTONE 14-0848 Mimosa, through to
fall and winter with its golden tones. Pairing Honey Yellow
with its color wheel opposite, Purple Heart, will surely add
a surprising flair. Or, for a more typical fall combination,
group Honey Yellow with Burnt Sienna and Iron.

I was amazed at the number of times I kept seeing this color in my closet.

Here's the satchel in her work environment.

Notice the grey electronics?

That's close to *Iron*, right?

I'm thinking a gray-colored dress is in my future.

Seasonal Color - that's the ticket!

What's yours?


  1. I LOVE that bag! I've been looking for one like it, but I'm having trouble finding something under $300.

  2. THanks, Lindsey!

    This Kristin Davis was on sale and nooo where near $300. I'm thinking you might want to invest in a fashionable diaper bag, tho'? And a wallet on a string to minimize the possibility of loss ;-)
