Tangerine Tango

 There is a new girl in town and she is ready to spice up your 2012. Pantone 17-1463 Tangerine Tango was appointed 2012 color of the year and she is up for the challenge.

 In fact, she has already leapt into the role on runways...

 the most fashionable of fingernails...
Chanel 307 Orange Fizz

and of course, at Rogue Vintage.

This freshly squeezed hue packs a big punch.  “Tangerine Tango marries the vivaciousness and adrenaline rush of red with the friendliness and warmth of yellow,” said Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute. The result? “A high-visibility, magnetic hue that emanates heat and energy.”
So whether you are planning for warmer days ahead or searching for the perfect party dress, we have you covered in this hot hue that is sure to put a little pep in your step.

Till Next Time,

Capricorn Style: Classic

So if anyone has even glanced at our website, you would have to be blind to not notice that we have a certain affinity for Zodiac signs.  More like an obsession, really.  The zodiac signs themselves are so beautiful but we also find the principles behind astrology to be fascinating.  Each month, we will feature the zodiac for that given period and a little style profile for how that particular sign is inclined to dress.  In addition, we will highlight a few pieces from the Rogue Vintage collection as astrological inspiration.

One reading and you will be hooked- we swear!  Tricia, being the "dark one" was sucked in immediately after reading that she likes to dress to intimidate and has a closet full of...GASP....sequined tops!  How true!  Jennings, being the "youthful and carefree" counterpart to the Rogue Vintage duo truly does prefer casual comfortable clothing in bright colors and family mementos to flashy rocks.  But more on the RV Scorpio and Sagittarius later this year....

For this month (yes, we are on the tail end of this sun sign but better late than never!) we are featuring lady Capricorn.  Born December 22nd to January 20th, this reliable woman is ruled by responsibility and hard work.  Less is usually more for this minimalist sign.  Clothing is an investment for her so she focuses on the American classics and not the latest fads.  She will stun in quality pieces that stand the test of time.

LOOK:  Timeless Classic
BEST COLORS:  Black, forest green, gray, earthy browns
FABRICS:  Wool, cashmere, flannel
STYLE STAPLES:  Traditional patterns like plaids and checks, well tailored suits, and chunky sweaters
STEP IT UP:  Menswear inspired looks (think button downs, tuxedo shirts, ties), wellies, luxury men's watches, riding boots and equestrian looks
DIAL IT DOWN:  Bright colors, loud patterns, ruffles, fake gems, animal prints, anything CHEAP

Our fave lady Cappie of the moment is the always classic Kate Middleton.  Here are a few of her signature looks and similar pieces from the Rogue Vintage collection.  To see the pieces for sizing, etc. visit or click the direct links highlighted in red.

Hope you have enjoyed our very first, very tortured blog post.  Our New Year's resolution was to get the blog up and running and we are only two weeks "fashionably" late.  We promise bigger, better, and more timely things to come for 2012!  

Till Next Time,
Tricia and Jennings
