Emme’s Picks has an intense focus on bold colors and strong shapes



1. Mint Green Dress Brand: Miss couture

This soft green paneled dress has a subtle strength with it’s quilted fabric acting as a pattern. I’d have some fun with this one pairing it with some brightly colored psychedelic tights.


2. Polka Dot Top

Brand: Handmade

I’m crazy about prints, especially polka dots, and this sweet sleeveless top with its peter pan collar and neck bow adds a lot of personality to an outfit without being too loud. I’d wear it with a pair of jeans and some chunky red shoes.


3. Orange Dress

Brand: Mamselle by Betty Carol

I love this orange tweed dress from the 60s for its cut and color. Its got a straight mod mini dress cut, giving the body a bold chunk of color and leaving the legs long and bear. Match this with some tall boots and a piece of large statement jewelry to complete the composition.


4. Mod Yellow Lamp

This vintage yellow chrome lamp is the perfect example of bold color and strong shape. It’s spherical head, flexible neck, and bold base would add a burst of style and form to any desk.


5. Chevron Skirt

Brand: Int. Ladies Garment Workers Union

I’m in love with maxi skirts right now, especially ones that can be the focal point of the outfit. I’d go monochromatic with this one wearing it with a form fitting brown top and high-heeled boots. By keeping everything else brown and form fitting the pattern and shape of the skirt becomes all-important.


6. Picnic basket

This tin picnic basket is so charming with it’s painted on wood grain.
