In case you're wondering...

Ivanka Trump was wearing her own brand as she
introduced her father at the RNC. Like father like
daughter when it comes to branding  and promoting
her own line. The nude shoes and $138 blush colored
sheath dress were from her Ivanka Trump collection.

Wednesday evening her off-white dress and black suede
shoes were also from her signature collection. Melania
Trump went more upscale in a ivory Fendi sheath with
trumpet sleeves that was strikingly similar to the dress 
from Roksanda when she spoke earlier this week. I 
understand she bought it online from net-a-porter 
instead of using a stylist or requesting a complimentary
 designer dress. The Roksanda dress sold out within hours
of her wearing it.

Fall Colors

Though it's barely mid-July, the Fall clothes
are beginning to make their way into the fashion
magazines and in our stores.
While thinking about wearing heavier and more clothing is not so appealing
right now, thinking about cooler weather is pleasant! With that in mind,
I want to fill you in on what to start envisioning for Fall to keep you in-
the-know and on-trend.

Each season, the Pantone Color Institute partners with the fashion industry
to highlight the prominent colors from New York Fashion Week designer
collections and create a color report ( exemplified in fabric colors chosen by
 manufacturers and paint colors in home decorating). According to the Fall
2016 Report, "strength, confidence and complexity" are reflected in clothing
 in the new fall colors. A number of more vivacious and unexpected colors
are a departure from the usual fall palette. Look for shades of cool blues,
grays, soft reds, pinkish-purple, mustard yellow and copper.
