So I was doing my usual daily reading. You know, just to see what is out there in the world of fashion. InStyle is telling me that "flame" is the new hot color for 2013. I love that we have gone through so many seasons that we can no longer use the regular old names for colors. Years ago it was out with the maroon colors and in with the wine colors. Last season it was out with the wine colors and in with the oxblood colors. Now we can no longer call orangey-red a tomato hue, but flame. I might also share that every time I type flame in my head I am using a magical voice with jazz hands because you know we are talking "FLAMES" here people.
Of course InStyle did not only share that I must dress myself in "flame," but shared an amazing little list of must have flame items. While I appreciate the suggestions, they clearly did not get my no shopping for 6 months memo. Not sure why they cannot cooperate with my spending freeze? Rude.
But really, what is a girl to do? Flame is the new hue, and I have forbidden myself to go out in search of a hot new hint of flame to add to my wardrobe. So again I ask you, what should I do? Well I will shop my own darn closet for once. And to my surprise, I am practically swimming in flames. Look at all these cute pieces I found in the archives.
Exhibit A....my flame colored Urban Outfitter heels that I was sporting years ago.
Exhibit B....my favorite flame clutch that has had many good times at my side, especially here when paired with a MooMoo in SouthBeach. I mean what more could a flame bag ask for?
Exhibit G...where you can see I am sporting a little flame on flame.
So I am happy to say that my 6 month shopping freeze will not leave me behind when it comes to the new hue. While I would like to attribute the fact that my closet is bursting with flames on the fact that I am a trendsetter, I imagine it is just because long ago the hot color was good old orangey-red. So go take a look in that closet of yours, and please do share what flame worthy item you were sporting way back when. Happy Monday...J
