Let's be honest, a pastel color palette leaves a lot to be desired. Few people look good in these springy shades and they're hardly a statement color on their own. Most have to be paired with something else or you'll look like you're part of a wedding party/sr. prom gone bad.
Besides the polo shirt I purchased for a golf/tennis pro theme party, you'll never see me in these.
Baby blue, powder pink, pale yellow? No thank you.
Wait a second though, what's this?
Lately I'm finding that I can't get enough of a particular pastel and neither can Spring 2011 RTW. Hand over the mint green, and no one gets hurt!

Ever since I laid eyes on the YSL Palace 105 hair pump I can't stop thinking about the mohawk (and how my piggy's could use some $900+ adventure). Cool kids, rock kids, punk kids, "stay away from" kids, the mohawk has always been an envious look. Anytime you want to talk about a show stopper, introduce the well coiffed do. I don't think I'll ever have the umph to make the cut but I'll keep it on the back burner for my statement piece when needed.
Leopard print is everywhere right now. Like most trends it's been riding the waves for as long as I can remember. Growing up in the 90s leopard was for the more mature girls. By the time I was considered "more mature" the print had moved to the party girl staple; where it remained until recently. Now it's been stalking around the fashion magazines as a cool kid only print. Soon enough though it will be trickled back to the affordable price point. Although it's a classic print and will most likely keep coming around I'm still on the fence. I suppose, like the animal itself, I'll stay in the tree on this one, at least until the time is right to pounce. Isn't it meant to disguise anyways?
Good to see you November. I've been itching for some velvet leggings, berets and hooded leather. But before I slip into you I need to figure something out. I'm still on a high of candy corn and horror cinema and can't stop thinking about the walking undead. While watching AMC's premiere of The Walking Dead last night I posed the question to my viewing partner, " Do you think I'd survive in a zombie apocalypse?" Without hesitation he responded, "No! You'd be gone in the first hour, you'd be too busy trying on coats and talking about boots!"
Although, the only shade of red that looks good on me is blood red and I've already got the pale skin and gray-scale wardrobe needed for zombie life I'm confident I would survive. I'm also a little upset about how fast he judged me. Obviously I hope I never find out who's right or wrong here but let's just say if the end of days came bearing zombies, I hope I'm near a Bloomingdale's so I can try on/take coats and boots.
