How much did I love Nanette Lepore’s bright and beautiful NYFW collection? I mean just look at the color combo! In case you haven’t noticed we kind of heart orange and turquoise.

Our own fashion guru, Dana, a color specialist, showed us how to take the look from runway to real life and inspired me to turn to Etsy for creating my own version of my favorite Lepore look:

If you’re the sewing type, this Vintage Blue Topaz Lace Slip is the perfect piece to sew over a basic orange sheath dress. Or skip the sewing and just layer it – you’ll be able to wear the pretty blue nightgown in lots of other ways. Vintage V-neck slip made with stretchy lace fabric with white edge. $19.99

Not ready to don head to toe brights? Get the look (and keep you’re black basics) by wrapping this Hand Painted Silk Scarf around your neck, hair, wrist or bag. This work of wearable art is made with 100% silk, with hand-rolled hems. Labeled “New Beginings” this hand painted design of orange, golden yellow, teal, steel blue and black was created with non-toxic dyes. $39

If you are ready to go big and bold, how about this Fifties Style halter neck corseted dress? This stunner is made with bright orange cotton twill fabric, has an adjustable halter neck and best of all, has three layers of net below and a one layer lining for that super 50’s full skirt. $74

Finally, how awesome are these 1960s Mod Grasshoppers Wedges? Strap some sunshine on your feet with these vintage Keds featuring bright straps in orange and green and a mod stacked wedge heal. $58

we heartsters – are you loving the new (and vintage) brights?

    I know turquoise and orange all too well…my mom managed a Howard Johnson’s Restaurant in the seventies. In retrospect, the turquoise and white houndstooth shirtdress uniforms they wore were kind of cool. The orange roof? Not so much. I must say I love, love, LOVE that orange slip topped with the lace! HoJo no mo’!
