My Ode to Pantone’s “Color of the Year 2014” !

Good evening beautiful readers !

Sorry I’m posting this blog so late in the day, but college is just soooo busy (bahahahah yeah right I literally had one class today, so anyways…).  As I’m sure most of you already know, Pantone has declared Radiant Orchid as the color of 2014.  Whether you are a follower of fashion trends, or just sip coffee as you watch the Today show every morning, there is a good chance you’ve already heard this.


Purple tones don’t rise into a trend very often (only about every 8 years)!  So I am taking absolute full advantage of the occasion.  As we all know, purple is the color of royals so I encourage all of my readers to tune into their princess alter egos in 2014.  Another trend finally catching in the midwest is the pointed nail (I first saw people adopting this trend in California 3 years ago and I’m just now falling head over heels for it, it’s just so feminine and sassy!) anyway, my point is, if you want to be SUPER fashion forward, pointed nails painted with “Under Where?” by Essie would be the perfect move for all the bold fashionistas.


I myself have decided to make an even bolder dive into the trend…with my hair! That’s right everyone, I will be rocking hair inspired by Radiant Orchid all year for you guys!  For all my hair stylists out there, I used Goldwell 6VV MAX with the Goldwell processing lotion, ratio 1:1.  I might be experimenting with different shades later on, but that’s a blog for the future!  I am only two days through sporting this look and I’ve already gotten more compliments than I expected, so if this is a look you’ve been curious about or wanted to try before, this is the year to do it!  


I’ll be posting more (and better) photos of my hair throughout 2014.  But for now here is the picture I posted to my Instagram.  If you are interested in seeing my makeup, hair, and outfits on a more regular basis feel free to follow me: mackysilber.  I also give heads-up of when I’ll be posting blogs and what I will be writing about.  On another note, feel free to comment with links and pictures of your bold fashion statements inspired by Radiant Orchid, I’d love to give you a shout-out if it strikes my fancy!  I’m thinking about creating a special e-mail for my readers to contact me at, so I’ll keep all you beautiful people tuned in.  As for now, go brainstorm some radiantly awesome ways to use orchid in your look tomorrow (see what I did there…aren’t I just one clever little lady).
