Inspiration| Pantone 2013 Color of the Year!

The much awaited color of the year has been released by Pantone and it is   (Drum-roll please!)..... 

 Coincidentally the the exact color i am wearing today. 
(will post an OOTD but here is a peak)

I personally love this color, especially being from Seattle, "The Emerald City". I love that it brings a little extra attention to my city. No doubt in my mind that Kate Middleton helped inspire this color choice. She has been seen several times wearing the hue, the color itself also just looks very rich, regal and warm. And looks great with any skin tone and hair color. I love seeing a red-head like Christina Hendricks in emerald. This is a great transition from the jewel tone trends from Fall 2012. Most do not realize the effect Pantone has on the entire fashion industry, manufacturers and designers will now begin creating pieces in this color, buyers will look for it specifically, and garment industry printers will buy the specific Pantone ink color for 2013 artwork.
See below some runway & red carpet looks and also where you can get the look for less!
