|Eh, oui. . . Here we have the way most Frenchwomen will no doubt add turquoise to their wardrobes.|
As you many recall, several days ago Janice of the brilliant Vivienne Files, took a turquoise coat and played with it proving that turquoise can be a snappy splash of color to brighten up a neutral wardrobe.
|Not the best way to tote turquoise in my opinion, but I did want you to see the orange piping because soon we will be discussing oranges.|
Since, as you know, I’ve been holed up in front of my computer for months, I haven’t been doing my normal scouting and reconnaissance to uncover what is really going on in the fun-filled, fast-paced world of fashion. By that I mean, what’s already in the stores, not what is right-this-minute on the runways.
|Turquoise with minimum commitment.|
|Because this photo shoot was an undercover operation, I didn’t have the time to arrange the alarm devices into a pretty picture.|
What I discovered in my favorite store, Monoprix (you knew that), was that turquoise is very, very important for spring. To prove my point I once again went undercover, translation: I made sure no salespeople were watching me, and I stealthily snapped some proof of the return of turquoise.
|Here we have some of my turquoise jewelry, I have two chunky nugget necklaces, earrings, various other necklaces and earrings, etc. You will note the pretty round “turquoise” on the gold chain, this necklace is in the mix to demonstrate my way of doing a Coco Chanel, i.e. mixing the vrai with the faux. The necklace in the middle is from Marsha, the divine creator of bijoux(vrai etfaux) and the glamorous blog Splenderosa.|
I also creatively (ahem) arranged some of my turquoise baubles to show you that I don’t necessarily need to go shopping if I want in on the trend, although I think those ballerines are awfully sweet for summer.
