I spotted this dining room photo in Tria Giovan's portfolio, and was immediately struck by the high-intensity contrasts in color in the room. From the bright yellow and orange chairs to the hot pink and lime green chandelier, it definitely comes on strong. But is it too boldly colorful for your tastes?
I feel a smile coming on . . . this brand spanking new Phoenix video was filmed in my hometown, San Francisco, over the past couple Sundays. It's fresher than fresh. The kids are local talent, and one of my friends is even one of the danceaholics in it — hi Trish! (She's the vibrant redhead with the cool printed tee). It's so spirited. The dance moves may look familiar — an ode to one of the best scenes in The Breakfast Club. And the shots of neon garb hone in on the awesome '80s vibe. Smile on.
A Fab reader has a neon-tastic request. She lives in a mountainous area and is desperately trying to find a cool neon scarf to bundle up with.

I'll start you off with this Dannijo Evie Neon Cuff ($260) for inspiration. Isn't it luminous?

This otherwise rather traditional entryway is given an eye-popping infusion of color, thanks to the neon purple chest of drawers. Would you ever paint a piece of furniture this boldly? Or do you think it's a design don't?
Sure we've seen fedoras. But this Forever 21 Neon Checker Trim Fedora ($10) stands out for being ska-tastic. The hot pink and black checkered band is totally The Specials circa '81. No need to check the mirror in the bathroom — you look mighty fine.
Check out coolpunkamy looking like a stylish babe. Her svelte ensemble makes me yearn for warm, neon nights. I like how she kept her ensemble sleek by pairing her vivacious top with a black skirt, while funky boots and accessories crank up the cool factor. And who can resist such a sweet smile?
Here's what she has on:
Congrats to coolpunkamy!

You've heard of a fanny pack, but have you heard of a Cap-sac ($13)? If not, allow me to introduce you to this wacky '80s phenomenon, which is basically a fanny pack for your head. It also comes in black, white, turquoise, yellow, royal blue, and red. Do you dig it or does it freak you out?

There's a way to liven up the red carpet, then there's a way to blow it up. Michelle Monaghan blew through the premiere of Up in LA. Her technicolor Peter Som dress and cotton candy pink Casadei heels were perfect for this lighthearted event and look especially sweet against the balloon backdrop. But no need to walk a red carpet to get Michelle's sassy look. Just remember to limit your technicolor to one item — otherwise you'll end up looking more raver, less glamour girl.
