What’s your favorite shade of blue?

It’s Monday! Wimbledon week 2 is underway. We’re huge tennis fans so we’ve got the matches on running as we work.  A moment ago we checked our mailbox and found an invitation from Moda Operandi to check out their “Blue Crush” editorial. So we did. And not only did we get to browse through some pictures of clothes and shoes and accessories that we can’t afford but wish we could, we got the inspiration to make up the “What’s your favorite shade of blue” poem on the right. And we got to learn a few new things about the color blue.

Did you know there were 66 shades of blue?

According to Wikipedia there are 66 shades of blue. We find that we’re partial to the lighter colors such as powder blue, baby blue, sky blue and alice blue as well navy and true blue.

In their “Blue Crush” editorial, Moda Operandi tries to make us “Fall in love with shades of navy, cobalt and sapphire”. Like this Tome navy silk charmeuse jumpsuit.

This 100% silk charmeuse jumpsuit comes with a $975 price tag. Jumpsuit featues a button-up front, elegant wide leg bottoms and a contrasting bright cobalt blue self tie belt.

And this Tome cobalt blue silk crepe v-neck dress

Tome cobalt blue silk crepe v-neck dressThis 100% silk crepe dress is described as “evocative yet effortless”. We love how flowy and soft and vibrant blue it looks. You can’t judge a book by the cover of course, but you can almost see in the picture why this dress comes with a $1,195 price tag.

Tabitha Simmons Denim Espadrille Sandals

Tabitha Simmons Denim Espadrille SandalsThese Tabitha Simmons denim espadrille flat sandals contrast 3 different shades of blue. They come with a $395 price tag.

MSGM Blue Asymmetrical Ruffled Hem Dress$510 is all you need to get your hands on this sleeveless fit and flare 61% polyamide, 35% cotton, 4% elastane blue asymmetrical ruffled hem dress from MSGM.

Saloni Blue Elena-B Culottes

Saloni Blue Elena-B CulottesThese ultramarine blue culottes from Saloni are made of 87% polyester and 13% elastane. They come with a $385 price tag. You can get the Saloni blue cropped off the shoulder Karolina top to go with these culottes. The top is $280 so you can get the set for $665.

These are our top 5 picks from Moda Operandi’s “Blue Crus” editorial. Looking at our selections we’re thinking we should probably add electric blue to our list of favorite shades of blue. The ultramarine and cobalt blue items we’ve picked would all seem to fall in the electric blue range.

So what’s your favorite shade of blue?

Hello, I'm Adela Lewis aka singer songwriter Adelamonica. I am the founder, creative director, editor in chief and main writer for avenuesixty.com. First let me say, I myself cringe at some of the things I've written on this blog. It is completely embarrassing to realize how miserably I've been failing to hide the fact that I lack sophistication, and often times lack enlightenment. I wish I had never written half the things I've written on here, but I did write them. To be clear, I am just a regular person who enjoys writing. I refer to myself as "editor in chief" and "creative director" because, owning the blog as I do and being the one who creates and edits the content (except for content submitted by guest contributors), I feel that I have the freedom to do so. But I am not an editor and there is currently no staff that I oversee. Via this blog, I am contributing my personal thoughts and ideas and beliefs to everyday topics of discussion--at times topics on which I am not particularly well informed, but about which I might still have a point of view--much like most other people on the planet . The things I write should be regarded in the light of diary/journal style and essay style writings, reviews and reports exploring the topics I attempt to discuss. Please recognize that I have no academic or other professional qualifications and I do not represent my points of view as carrying any weight or having anything of significant value to contribute to serious discussions held by qualified persons on any topic featured. I apologize in advance for any errors major or minor that I make in my writing (I have made some embarrassing errors), anything I write that can be perceived as an offense or that is otherwise insensitive or needlessly critical and disparaging of any person.
