This ensemble is the first in a lil 3-part series on how it takes just "1 to be Remarkable". I took a $14 little black dress from Forever 21 & styled it with just one remarkable piece. You know me. Remarkable = worthy of remarking upon. And these poppy colored peep-toe bows from Macy's often get a remark.
This ensemble is also a great example of how to embrace trends. Poppy/coral/tangerine was a huge trend for spring 2012. Previously, I would have done this look with cherry red: heels, lips & nails. But getting the idea of coral in my head this spring ... it's had me feeling much more summery! Whatever shade is "in", don't try it because it's cool. Try it because you might not have thought about it before. And consider it even in small ways like a lipstick, nailpolish or shoe.
