Aurora: Pantone Top 10 Colors of Spring 2010

When you see how cute Michonne + Mike are in 100 Layer Cake's post, you may just become a fan of yellow. I am not really a yellow kind of girl, but the whole package is breathtaking, including her Carolina Herrera dress. Even on the hanger, that dress has a life of it's own. What I love about this wedding blog is that personal style and deliberate expression of personalities and stories are alive and tangible. The imagery is just so yummy.

When I saw the image of the bouquet, I thought it paired up so nicely with the Buttercup invitation that was recently featured in Brides Magazine.

Aurora yellow was forecasted in Pantone's top 10 Colors for Spring 2010. Yellow has been hot for a bit now, and I honestly did not think it would stay on top, but the optimistic feeling it gives you, just keeps it vital in design.

In the words of Nina Garcia quoted for the latest Pantone's Fashion Color Report:

“Designers have responded to the shift in the economy in one
of two ways: by using bold colors in comforting, familiar silhouettes; or by
creating eye-catching one-of-a-kind pieces that are completely irresistible. The
fashion constant, however, has been and always will be color. There’s nothing
like a vibrant hue of Royal Purple or Golden Yellow to make
us feel optimistic and hopeful for the future – just look at our first lady! She wears
color impeccably. I predict that we’ll see a lot more brights in spring 2010 to
inspire and uplift everyone’s mood.”
