For You Blue

(Image above: Wardrobe photo from the calivintage blog)

Depending on your source, the official colors of the upcoming holiday are anything from austere black and silver to cheery red or yellow. But if you ask me, the color that makes most sense for ringing in a new year is the light shade of blue composing this dress worn by the stylish woman behind calivintage. Light blue reminds me of newborn babies, and what is New Year’s if not a celebration of renewal and getting a fresh start – a rebirth, if you will? That’s why I think this adorable outfit, composed of a baby blue cocktail dress and  baby’s-breath-like stockings, would be perfectly appropriate for a New Year’s Eve party. She’s wearing flats in this photo, but you can easily glam up a similar look with a pair of cream-colored heels like the Lovely Lady Pumps in Fergie.

Richard finds style inspiration in an assortment of historical figures, musicians, and movie characters, including Doc Holliday, Tracy Pew, Han Solo, and El Topo. When not tapping at the computer keyboard for ModCloth, Richard spends his time playing music and dreaming of composing the perfect soundtrack to an epic gothic western film set on a distant, dusty planet, where the cowboys ride rocket-powered motorcycles instead of horses.

    i think this is my favorite dress from the rodarte for target line! i’ve always thought that dainty lace dresses are perfect for holiday parties — precisely why i plan on wearing one to the ModCloth post-holiday soiree.
