Spring & Summer 2012 Colors

The top 10 colors for spring 2012 are from diverse influences, showcasing a range of styles and lifestyles. Most differing in moods, encapsulating vivid bights, soft muted tones and fun-loving pastels.

Provocative Tangerine Tango, an enticing juicy orange, is a vivacious and appealing refresher to enliven anyone's outlook this spring. Providing a jolt of energy, Solar Power radiates warmth and cheer.

Fanciful Bellflower, a distinct ornamental purple, exudes uniqueness and creativity. Scintillating and sexy, Cabaret is a sensual and intense rosy-red - an excellent choice for summer clothing and cosmetics.

Sodalite Blue, a classic maritime hue, brings order and calmness to mind. Like an anchor to a ship, this dependable shade works with every color in the palette.

Cockatoo, a tactile blue-green, is sure to make your spirits soar. This unusual hue adds a whimsical touch to the palette and will surely make a statement this spring.

Margarita, a piquant yellow-green, lifts spirits with its refreshing and stimulating glow. Reminiscent of a blossoming garden on an early spring morning, fragrant Sweet Lilac evokes the fresh scents of summer. This delicate pinkish lilac adds a touch of romance to any wardrobe.

Natural versatile neutrals add practicality to this season's brights. Driftwood, an adaptable blend of beige and gray with a slightly weathered feel, and Starfish, a perfect warm summer neutral, complement all colors featured in this season's top 10.

Celebrating Black History Month

What would February be without celebrating Black History Month?

This year's theme is "BlackWomen in American Culture and History". We honor African American women and the innumerable roles they played in the shaping of our nation.

This month (and throughout the year) reflect on the value of their contribution to the nation we have today.

Donna Vinci Remembers Whitney Houston


This month we lost a beautiful angel, Whitney Houston.

Here at Donna Vinci we were all saddened to hear about the death and we wanted to pay special tribute to her in this February Newsletter. She had the voice of an angel and we can all remember times when her music was the soundtrack to our lives.

We continue to keep Whitney's family in our prayers and we will continue to remember her in a positive light.
