orange as a neutral

orange-trendMy friend Smita invited me and her friend Lei Ann to join her at Neiman Marcus last Friday for their spring fashion show. It was presented by AnaMaria Pimentel, the Neiman Marcus (and Bergdorf Goodman) Accessories Fashion Director and photographed by Smita (and here's Lei Ann's fabulous recap) AnaMaria pulled together great looks based on four trends for spring - navy blue, prints, relaxed chic and orange as a neutral. I was glad to see that what I've been working on is 'on trend' and independent of last fall's NY Fashion week when most of these trends were shown. One of these is a different take on my gold leaf necklace design with orange. This shade is really more of a persimmon / dark salmon orange and goes so well with the Sarah necklace and the Erin necklace. Another of AnaMaria's spring highlights was liquid metal - pair orange with gold and you can't go wrong. orange-bib
