On Trend with Vintage--Singing the Blues for Spring

Blue is always a popular color.  I mean, I don't know one person who doesn't love it and look good in it, and this is true for both men and women. Universally flattering, blue somehow has both an energizing and calming effect when you wear it.  And with an upcoming Spring that's filled with color, just about every shade of blue has joined all the oranges and pinks and other colors flooding the pages of the magazines.  It's already become a trend on the red carpets as well, kicked off when Princess-to-be Kate Middleton donned her favorite navy Issa to announce her engagement.  So whether your favorite blue is navy or sky or aqua, there are choices galore to suit your style.  For those of you who want a modern classic take on the blues, try one of the lovely vintage dresses from GlamAmor shown here and in the Store.
