In Living Color

Faux Leather Swatches, originally uploaded by Laura Bee Seattle.

This morning Ashley and I attended a lecture by Leatrice Eiseman, color guru for Pantone. We loved looking at her slides and hearing her insight into color trends for the new year. One tidbit: Mimosa Yellow is Pantone's color of the year for 2009, as epitomized by Michelle Obama's Inaugural outfit.

If you are interested in reading some Leatrice's color studies, visit her blog.

I was on the road to the lecture at 8 this morning so I wasn't able to watch the live appearance of our Luxe Clutch on King 5 News. Luckily, you can catch the clip here.

You were ahead of your time with yellow.

Little Sis, you are a trendsetter, not a trend follower!
