I love this color. I guess Pantone was right when naming "blue iris" color of the year. We are all drawn to it!

I bought a blue dress for my daughter's wedding! I am still considering if I should wear it. It is a color I haven't worn since I was younger, but it sure is a pretty shade!

Happy day!
Melissa

Lovely shade of blue, but I cannot wear it. Does not look well on me. I am a red and black girl.

Melissa Lewis -- the blue in the first room is what inspired this post and made me fall in love with the colour, although not certain if I'm ready to wear it yet . . .

les reveurs yeux- -- thank you, and will definitely post photos if I decide to try it.

Melissa – your dress sounds lovely – you should definitely consider wearing it. Happy Day to you as well :)
