Colors to Brighten Your Day

What color do you grab when you are tired? Just like a friendly smile is contagious, so is the color you are wearing. Instead of grabbing the brown turtleneck go for a bright silk blouse and jacket.

Red is the color of love, a powerful hue and will take you far.


This jacket is classic and ultra chic. Versatile and warm, colorful and rich in texture.

"Your attitude is like a box of crayons that color your world. Constantly color your picture gray, and your picture will always be bleak. Try adding some bright colors including humor, and your picture begins to light up." - Allen Klein

Swap Sneak Peek

Some women were worried about sizes and styles. With over 150 women attending there will be a little bit of everything to pick from. Here are some of my favorites that came in this morning:

We can never have enough boots in Seattle. Boots as unique as these are a must have item.


Did you know bright bold colors are fall's must have trend? Accessories are the perfect way to get that boost of color you are searching for.

This jacket by Nicole Miller looks like it has NEVER been used.

If you like something more casual, this piece would look great over skinny jeans and boots.

Summer to Fall: The Motorcycle Inspired Jacket

Wear it casually with jeans or to work with a skirt. If you have purchased a motorcycle jacket in this oatmeal color, you will find it isn't just a spring/summer piece.


Keep it simple, add a pastel color for a soft look. A short necklace such as the one pictured above makes a great accessory for jackets, especially if you tend to keep you jacket buttoned up or zipped.


Just because the days are getting darker doesn't mean you have to take out those black pants just yet. Why not try a gray pant in a darker shade?  The blue sweater vest is underneath so you don't get too warm in your layers.

Style tip: Add flats for a casual, Audrey Hepburn look.


Add darker hues with the jacket, create dimension and interest. I like how the white polka dots help bring the outfit together, in this look the skirt is the centerpiece.

Adornment is never anything except a reflection of the heart. - Coco Chanel
