Pantone has just announced the color of the year for 2014. We have anxiously been awaiting this announcement. Each year, it is so much fun to see what the color will be. This year it is a hue of purple and we love it!!! (of course)
Did you know that purple is considered a neutral? It has warm AND cool tones which make it a very compatible color partner. The new color is soft, but yet powerful enough to stand alone. What colors will you pair it with? Make sure to let us know.

I have to thank my friend Hans Gehrke from Chicago for his idea for this post. He told me about this great site and product. I just HAD to share. These collegiate ties from Vineyard Vines www.vineyardvines.com are just the right gift for the new student, the devoted alum or the sports fan.. Look no further! These ties will make a huge statement as your favorite guy steps out. What a win for you, the shopper, and for the lucky guy on your gift list!
Consider the college themed wedding too. Wouldn’t it be great for the groomsmen to wear these and/or give them as a groomsmen’s gift? The possibilities endless.
I would like to introduce you to my friend, Alexi Tavel. She is one of the most creative, stylish and artistic women I know. She is incredible! She is the designer and owner of October Anniversary www.octoberanniversary.com, a custom jewelry design shop in SoHo.
I love these stacks! I love that everything is now at 20% off for the holidays! I love that all of her jewelry is unique, eye catching and beautiful. Look for yourself and get your order into Santa soon!
