Right now, the only things I want to wear are head-turning shades of solid color. I’m not sure if it was the overwhelming onslaught of soft, subtle neutrals that pervaded our wardrobes all spring, but suddenly my thirst for bright, bold, nearly shocking pops of color is unquenchable. And the most satisfying of them all has to be hot pink. Just one swipe of this electric hue is enough to perk me up – whether in the form of a sunning statement necklace, the perfect satchel, or even my all time favorite childhood chewing gum.

Here are a few of the fuschia items I’m lusting after today:

Cambridge Satchel


Soo Ihn Kim Dominic Ombre Chain Necklace

Vince Camuto “Malinda” Sandal

Kate Spade “Waldorf Strap” Watch

Bubblicious Bubble Gum (!)

Of course, my other go-to for a burst of color is my makeup. Try tarte cosmetics’ LipSurgence(TM) lip luster in “frisky”  on an otherwise bare face – fun, chic, and just the right amount of flirty.
