While Renny sends us pictures from her much deserved family vacation with 85 degrees and sunny weather, we can’t help piggy backing on her itch for Spring to arrive in Chicago! From Michelle William’s Oscar Dress to the Flamingo’s that grace our text messages from Renny, we are loving all things CORAL.

Ombré Obsessed

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Ombré is a French term meaning “shaded” and is now currently an obsession of color graduating from light to dark.  Ombré hit the fashion world at full force, gracing the runways at every major show and then salons as it soon became a dying technique with hair, see below. Now it is a wedding detail that we cannot get enough of. From cakes, to flowers, to décor, to dresses, Ombré is a great way to add a little surprise and pop of color to your big day. Dare to Ombré? You be the judge.
