We’ve been getting several questions about the gorgeous stripe in our Voloshin X TheMomEdit collection. Specifically, is the dark stripe navy…or black? Well, we played around with both, actually, and ended up going with what I like to call…ambiguously navy.
It turns out that a black stripe gave the neutral tan stripes a nice little edge, but then it looked strange mixed and matched with the navy set (and my favorite color to actually wear is probably navy). But if the stripe was too true-navy, the whole thing skewed overly preppy, and looked strange with black. And so we made the stripe the deepest, darkest, most ambiguously navy possible. And it works! The result is a neutral stripe that has the edge we want, yet looks great with black (and frankly, is one of the few tops that actually make black jeans seem summer appropriate)…

…yet still works with navy
…and white. I was pretty darn excited about the pairing with white, too. Not overly preppy, just cool and chic.
And I know I don’t even have to mention denim because that’s basically a no-brainer, right?
In my wedding photos (side note, but I do have a point here)…I had forgotten to take off my ear cuff. It was 1999 and that was a thing. But no one noticed, and it wasn’t until I got my wedding photos back (on film, you guys, FILM) that we realized that I was still wearing a little silver ear cuff amongst my wedding veil and crystal choker (again, 1999). So it should be NO SURPRISE that when I finally have my Big Modeling Gig (can anyone else read sarcasm?) shooting my own collection with Voloshin…my ever-present hair tie is On. My. Wrist. Of course it is.
Just, ya know, inadvertently keepin’ it real.
Anyway, I’ve gotta thank you guys for the support and love surrounding our first collection with Voloshin. I truly hope you love these pieces as much as we do! (But on that note…sizes are getting really low if you haven’t yet pulled the trigger….)
Let me know if you have any other questions or concerns, and I’ll do my best to answer!
