Ooo-la-la Ombre

Something sure to hit your fashion radar this Spring is Ombre.  Ombre is a French  word which means shading and is used to describe a technique of color-bleeding or drip dying fabric by subtlety fading colors into one another.  This is not to be confused with tie-dye which  is considered to be a less sophisticated variation of dying. 

This Spring you can see variations of ombre from cosmetics to clothes and  everything in between.

Ombre first hit my radar when I was reading Running With Heels and all of their lovely examples including the red Stuart Weitzman pumps I included in this post.  Keep an eye out for it the next time you are out and about shopping. smile_wink
