Yellow - the New Red

Hey Diva Socialistas:

What a nasty day in DC! One word = yuck! So much rain that I am going to have to cancel my trip to NY tomorrow because of this crazy weather. But even with the weather I am in a great mood because I HAVE MY HAIR MOJO BACK! Something has been missing for the past two months or so and I finally figured it out - without my bangs I am not the same Diva. So my stylist Alex snipped them back today and I feel fly inside and out once again!

Okay on with today's mission. I saw this outfit and realized right away that like my missing my bangs it was missing something important ... the color yellow.


Yellow anywhere would have updated this simple chic look - minus the red shoes of course ;).

Yellow emerged on the scene in a big way at the Oscars in 2005 but it was Renee Zellweger with her yellow Carolina Herrera dress and Nicole Richie with her Marc Jacobs bag that the color yellow as finally put on the map.

This is quite interesting because yellow has always been "the" color that no one wanted to touch but about a year after seeing Nicole tout her yellow purse all over LA everyone wants a yellow bag or yellow sweater. So right now, especially with bright primary colors back in vogue yellow should be in vogue for awhile. At least until summer 2006 since the Fall 2007 ready-to-wear shows were all really dark but for the Christian Dior and other collections.

Want to add some yellow to your wardrobe - look at this dress by Susana Monaco and more at Shop bop

These shoes from Miss Sixty like this Agnes it!

Happy shopping Divas! Make sure you pair your yellow with a contrasting colored outfit or accessory. All yellow is never a combo for any diva.
