MOMMA WANTS… jewel tone dresses (from the red carpet to my closet)

Sag awards - jewel tone dresses

There was one overwhelmingly evident red carpet trend that emerged at the SAG awards – jewel tone dresses are THE must have!  Forget red, blue, green and purple – I’m talking about ruby, sapphire, emerald and amethyst – these colors are rich and expensive and transform a red carpet (and your closet) in the most beautiful way.  My favorite jewel tone dresses from the SAG red carpet included Sophia Vergara va va vooming it in ruby red, Julianna Margulies sparkling in sapphire Giambattista Valli, pregnant Keira Knightly glowing in Erdem amethyst, Claire Danes in Marc Jacobs and Julianne Moore in Givenchy shutting it down in emerald.  Or course, it took me less than 5 seconds to realize I needed these jewelry box colors in my life, no I won’t be walking the red carpet any time soon – but as much as momma loves a little black dress, I think it’s time to expand the color palette.  Little jewel tone dresses for the office, running around town or date night are exactly what my closet is craving.  So, thank you red carpet season for reminding me that colors always make a gorgeous statement and that jewel tone dresses are now officially at the top of my wishlist!
