WHITE AFFAIR

Screen Shot 2014-05-18 at 4.32.47 PM Have you ever wondered why when you see the color white an overwhelming feeling of calm and relaxation washes over you?  Research has proven that colors have a profound impact on how you feel.  It was thought a long time ago that white was the absence of color, but it’s actually the opposite.  Thanks to Sir Isaac Newton we have the correct info.  The color white is actually a combination of all the colors of the visible spectrum. White has come to symbolize peace, purity, innocence, honesty, cleanliness, fresh starts, perfection, modernism and sophistication.   It can give you a different feeling in the way that it’s used.  For example, if used with casual cotton clothing or on canvas furniture you would get a relaxed, casual feel but if used with a leather jacket or white tufted modern couches you would get a more contemporary modern feel. Anytime I walk into Pottery Barn and see a cushy oversized white couch, I just have an urge to lay down, prop up my feet, grab a good book and a blanket and relax.  Of course, I don’t do this, I’m pretty sure Pottery Barn won’t be too happy with me.  People that tend to be drawn to this color usually long for a simpler and more relaxing existence.  With today’s crazy fast paced world, I can see why white décor has become the latest trend.  Maybe it’s our way of slowing down, sitting back and smelling the roses.

The ever so popular White Party has been held annually for decades.  The décor is white, crisp, fresh, classy and the party has events all day preceding up to the big event at night—One Blowout Bash with plenty of food, celebrities and entertainment.  It’s one of the most anticipated events of the year, where the elite show off their newest white clothes, drink champagne and mingle with the wealthy.  These types of parties have become so popular they are now held in places such as Chicago, Alabama and Canada.

On top of it, there are just so many options to choose from! You can choose from your favorite skinny jeans, black jeans, bootcut jeans, flare jeans, Hudson Jeans or those worn ‘n torn jeans at the back of your closet. The great thing about jeans is that they’re so versatile. You can dress them up with a pair of your favorite Coach Boots or you can dress them down with a pair of sandals. It’s hard to believe that these comfy articles that we grab for on a daily basis were made for farming and mining laborers back in the day. Thank goodness the hippies made them a fashion trend that we still wear today.

MELANGE MADNESS

It seems like everywhere you look these days you see Melange Sweaters. Just like the definition of the term itself Melange =”to mix” can be a total grab bag of different styles, everything from a mixture of yarn fabrications within a single strand to a mixture of yarn colors and types. We found some truly unique variations on this trend that take Melange to an entirely different new level. The long Batwing sleeved sweaters posted below don’t just mix yarn types but total material fabrications. These Melange batwing sweaters below are composed of bold new combinations of silks and knits.
