This year, Pantone has chosen its colors of the year to be Rose Quartz and Serenity.  These colors either are or will be everywhere from the runway to the stores.  Pantone took a transcendental approach to choosing these colors by stating that they wanted to reflect connection and wellness and a “soothing sense of order and peace.”


My New Oscar de la Renta Sunglasses His Legacy Continues


Aside from the aviator sunglasses that I occasionally wear from Tiffany’s and posted about here, I generally wear a generic pair of Jackie O sunglasses that I got from eBay.  However, Saks Fifth Avenue was having a major sale on its sunglasses and I fell in love with this pair by Oscar de la Renta.  I love the frames.  They fit the angles of my face well and, as a whole, the fit my face well.  I ordered them online and sometimes it is a gamble as to whether what you order will fit properly.  I got lucky this time because they fit perfectly!  I love the service that I get from Saks Fifth Avenue and I love my new sunglasses!

I have never owned anything by Oscar de la Renta.  He sadly passed away on October 20, 2014 and took with him a world of genius.  Now that I own a small part of his world, I feel that my closet contents are a bit more complete.
