We want to know more about you!  Please do us a favor and answer our poll today:

And, because Tuesday is our fashion update day, here’s a quick tidbit for you!

The Pantone Color Institute believes that these will be the HOT colors for summer 2010:

  • Turquoise — cool and tropical, this delicate and feminine blue evokes memories of tropical beaches and cool clear waters.
  • Amparo Blue — a twist on navy, which traditionally represents spring. This is a livelier, brighter hue but still has the warmth of summer; a tone away from Fall 2009’s teal/Majolica Blue, and not as harsh against the skin as royal blue.
  • Violet — the color of heather and spring blooms, violet, a cross between lavender and purple is a romantic, feminine gentle hue with uplifting properties.
  • Aurora —a deepish yet soft yellow with a slightly greenish hue, Aurora, according to Pantone, represents the first glimpse of sunshine as it rises over the horizon. A more wearable yellow than brighter hues.
  • Fusion Coral — a warm pinky, peachy orange, the color of tropical sunsets and reminicsent of passion fruit.
  • Tomato Puree — the season’s boldest color in a classic, clean pinky red. This uplifting tone works really well with all neutrals or can be teamed with turquoise for a retro look.
  • Pink Champagne — a wispy combination of ivory and beige provides a subtle hint of warm color and provides a sophisticated blank canvas for almost any shade.
  • Tuscany — this warm pinky beige acts as a versatile base color, especially for violet and fusion coral.
  • Dried Herb –— a gray-green neutral base evoking memories of country gardens, a softer tone than khaki but just as versatile.
  • Eucalyptus — a versatile soft gray which will transcend seasons and provides an elegant backdrop to add dramatic pops of color from brightly-colored accessories.
