Whats Hot- ORANGE and CORAL!

So with spring just around the corner, everyone is shedding their winter garb and pulling out the bright stuff! Vintage clothing lends itself well to this trend, especially the 70s color palate and design lines that are hot right now. The hot color trend now is orange and coral...its in every mag in both clothing, accessories and makeup. A couple examples are shown here from the Feb 2011 People Stylewatch and March 2011 Lucky magazines:

I always try to incorporate a bit of the current trend into my vintage clothing offerings. I perused the web to find those lovely corals in cosmetic history and came up with some nice inspiration:

So, in preparation for my shoot this weekend, I made a stop at the MAC counter (diehard MAC fan, right here) and picked up some lovely Melba blush to match the hot Revlon coral lipstick I'll be using. Stay tuned for some fab new items and my lovely model sporting this new makeup look. In the meantime, here are some great orange and peach items currently listed in my shop:

70s bright orange trench coat (wow- a trench thats orange? double hot trend!)

70s sherbert orange fit n flare dress

sweet and sassy!

So, maybe your thinking thats great but I'm not into wearing the all over bright colors. Well no need to be left out! Your home or accessory hanger could use a little color boost to chase away those late winter blahs! Here are some of my fav selections currently available from other etsy sellers:
