Vogue UK has declared Mimosa the color of 2009. What the heck is Mimosa, you say? Like champagne and orange juice? Precisely.
A "warm and engaging" shade of yellow like the Carolina Amato Gloves Shorty Leather GlovesMimosa represents hope and optimism - buzzwords for the new year after a 2008 full of instability and upheaval.
The colour yellow exemplifies the warmth and nurturing quality of the sun, properties we as humans are naturally drawn to for reassurance," Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. "Mimosa also speaks to enlightenment, as it is a hue that sparks imagination and innovation."
Designers showed yellow/Mimosa all through the runway but for those who cannot absolutely wear yellow? Do it in accessories like a Fendi Medium Baguette in Lemon Yellow
Halle (our very own official cougar mascot) wears them, so does Taylor Swift, Rihanna and Fergie. They are much nicer than all the other beaded bracelets on the market, because they are made of fine gemstones - diamonds, sapphires, coral beads. Plus, they are supposed to posses supernatural powers...yup!. The Sydney Evan Large Evil Eye Bracelet or the Orka Mesica Black Beaded Bracelet are great stacked up and add punch to any outfit.
