Pretty Pastels - Fashion Trend Collage by Jamie Hogsett10:19 AM
Sara just introduced me to Polyvore, which is a pretty darn cool way to make your own collages
based on fashion trends, your likes, etc. I was inspired by a page in the
March 2012 issue of Vogue magazine that talks about pastel dresses recently worn by celebrities. Color is absolutely huge right now in fashion, anything from super bright hues to pastels, which is just fine with me!
I'm especially liking how so many of these colors correspond to Soft Flex Beading Wire Colors! Tanzanite, Citrine, Yellow Lemon Quartz, Green Turquoise, Pink Rhodochrosite, and Chrysoprase all fit into the theme. Wouldn't it be cool to make a piece of jewelry using all the colors, something along the lines of the earrings shown above?
