"Don't be in a party. Be a party."
It's a fi-es-ta! 🎉 It's a fi-es-ta! 🎉 Attn #UnicornArmy! 🔊 It's a #UnicornParty! Are you feeling fiesta-y? 😻 Shake, shake, shake! Shake, shake, shake! Shake your bootay!!! Yeah!! Welcome to the third official color series post ... FIESTA! 💃🏼 ... So fun! As you all know, we have been shooting looks for the spring and summer Pantone Fashion Color Report 2016. ❤️ And this week is all about a bright and energizing red. Fiesta is one of the bolder colors of the 🔝1️⃣0️⃣ released this fashion season. It's fiery (insert respective 🔥 emoji) and strong (insert respective 💪🏻 emoji); a complete contrast among the softer color palette. On a paint swatch, red is perfect. But sometimes it's hard to make it work in the fashion game. Red has gotten a bad rap all these years. Most people think .... Tacky, red press on nails or a sexy sports car. 🚗 (👈🏻 clearly there are no sports car emojis lmao 😹) So it looks like there's no middle ground right? Tacky vs sexy. Not too bad, but not as versatile as we would like it to be. We're here to tell you the fashion gods have smiled upon us and we have found more than one way to bridge the gap; starting with 🔺fiesta red.🔻 Keep scrolling to see how your fave #SmartBlondes rocked the vibrant 2016 Pantone Color FIESTA!! ⚜❌⭕️❌⭕️⚜

LESLIE: Hello pretty babes! 😻 Ain't nothing like a unicorn party!! As you can see the third color to be featured in the 2016 PANTONE COLOR SERIES is 💃🏼fiesta! I wanted to showcase the color in a little bit of a bolder way instead of rocking a similar lip shade💋 or head-to-toe look so I opted for a staple accessory that would still make a statement! (You rock those bold lips tho babe or eye shadow or lip gloss) 😏 Also might I add this dress shape and off-the-shoulder cut is a new look for me and I'm kind of liking it?🍑 It's taken me a long time to really embrace my curves (because we ALL know I've got them) and try something new! (I'm even thinking of french braiding my hair, something I haven't done since I was like 9 NBD)🙀 Anyway...You've seen this spotted clutch before in a certain post about cupcakes, but I thought it added a retro vibe with my cat-eye Marilyn-esqe sunnies😎 and freshly chopped locks (Just go with it.) I wanted to bring it back to our roots really quick and just reiterate that every, single one of you is a unicorn😘. It takes a long time to really love yourself and all that you offer, never apologize for who you are, what you stand for and most importantly how you are perceived. What makes a fabulous unicorn babes is EVERYTHING about you! Love you pretties, now slap on a pair of fabulous sunnies and saunter off into the sunset ✌🏻️❤️♊️

LINDSEY: Welcome to the FIESTA babes! 🎊 It's all about red on this beautiful street style Wednesday. 🤘🏻 So excited to be continuing with our color series! Can't believe we're already on our third color! 👩🏼👀 Time flies when you're fashion forward. 😏 Let's start by naming a few of my favorite things that are FIESTA inspired. 🎒
🔺 Bold red lipstick! Nothing like stepping out feeling confident and powerful. It's vampish and all of a sudden you feel more capable than before you lined your lips. 💋
🔻 Every self respecting fashionista needs a pair of red stilettos in her closet. 👠 Red heels make everyone do a double take ... And who said being a head-turner was a bad thing?!
🔺 The handbag is one of the most important accessories in your closet; it's functional, hard-working and goes everywhere you go. 🎒 So why not mix it up with a deeply fabulous red tote, or cross body, or clutch, or satchel?! Or all of them?!?! Ahhh!! So much amazing-ness! 😜
🔻 Did I forget to mention that matching sets are totally in and you should definitely have one?! That question was rhetorical! The fiesta-inspired floral crop and mini skirt set I'm rocking are the business! 😍 Sets make everything easier, they already match. 💃🏼
But I digress! We're here to discuss all things FIESTA and why they're amazing. The color red is here to help you feel confident, powerful, vivacious, smart and basically amazing. So give it a shot lovelies. Rock some fiesta-red like a beezy and do you like nobody else can! 💯 (PS sorry I'm so long-winded 😁😁).
