Pantone just released their Fashion Color Report for Fall 2011:
I’m feelin’ the whole thing, but I’d like to nominate a softer shade of cranberry to add to the mix. It is best evidenced in LA up-and-comer Clare Vivier’s (She is the Rebecca Minkoff of the decidedly more Los Feliz than DTLA set.) solid red Nubuck leather messenger bag:
I want this bag so hard! Comes in a great size (This is as “big” as I’ll get with any shoulder bag.), and the leather is impeccably supple and soft. I’m keeping this one in mind for a New Year’s Eve/28th birthday gift to myself. (If you know me, then you know the two are one and the same.)
I don’t know what happened to make me mature and grow up in my style. It’s kinda weird when you finally realize how many years it’s been since you shopped in the Juniors section.
