Always a fave color for Mother's -of- the- Brides, and the late Queen Mum, blue has fallen by the fashion wayside in recent decades. Turquoise lifts it's head some summers, and slate sneaks in in the fall, but a good strong true blue has been absent, and sorely missed on the clothing racks of the Marshall's stores across this vast nation. Blue is a striking color for every skin tone, and like yellow, and green, every skin tone has it's best shade of blue. Every collection we include a blue hat, whether it be a teal blue, or a baby blue in the Fall felts, or a feathered concoction for cocktails doused in peacock twirls. And they always sell.
Now I won't have to shout it from the tenttops at Fashion Week, because the Democrats are bringing blue back! Michelle Obama has been seen in many tones of blue; since the convention started, I've seen her in little else. No hat, of course, but we'll work on that issue. Hilary Clinton was in blue. Bill Clinton sported a blue tie. Politicians and their supporters have always known that red is a great color for the tv lens, but apparently, some stylist snuck in a blue dress somewhere, and off it went like a shot. So now the Mothers- of -the- Brides will have dresses next year, and the spangles of the upcoming drag queen season may very well reflect the blue skies, the blue waters, and the true blue prevalent in the Democratic Convention.
I'm all for loading up the window of Ellen Christine with nothing but blue hats just as a showoff gesture.
