This Erin Featherston dress is the Pantone Color of The Year, Tangerine Tango

Red-orange is the top color in our fashion future.

At least according to world-renowned color experts, Pantone. The New Jersey-based  expert named Tango Tangerine as the 2012 Color of the Year.

“Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango is an orange with a lot of depth to it,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute

Some good news, premium lovers. True Religion recently opened  a 1,500 square foot boutique in Cherry Hill Mall. I guess we can't get enough of skinny jeans. Or is premium denim just way overrated? In addition to jeans, the store promises a full array of western shirts, ponchos and sweaters. Bohemian chic is in.  But as much as I love dark denim, I'm moving on to corduroys. True Religion has got them, too  What do you think? Are a pair of cobalt blue corduroys appropriate for the season?  Are there any big True Religion fans out there?

About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
