After going subtle for last week’s The Look post, we decided to create a look of the Go Big or Go Home variety for our first Holiday Party ensemble. A red carpet-caliber fête, the setting of this week’s edition, is the perfect occasion to showcase a bold, color-focused look.
Ever since seeing our Holiday 2012 collection for the first time, we have been enchanted by the combination of fuchsia and emerald green found on one of our new Color Riche Talia clutches. The colors are so foreign to each other, yet balance each other perfectly. So perfectly, in fact, we had to see this combination in a head-to-toe look.
Enter the emerald green velvet gown by Gucci. This dress, both subtle and sultry at the same time, captures the deep emeralds of Talia to a tee. And, although already a showstopper on its own, when you combine the snakeskin Talia with this beauty, the transcendent fuchsia manage to pop even more brightly.
If there is any time during the year that this ensemble can work, it’s the Holiday season. This time of year, it’s basically a requirement for colors to be rich with unforetold depth.
Simply a feast for the eyes…
