Throwing Shade: Midnight Blue

It’s been said that we’ve got ‘colorful’ personalities. Which if you read between the lines, is a nice Midwestern way of saying ‘those ladies like to say the word shit a lot.’

Our vibrant personalities notwithstanding, ‘colorful’ isn’t a word we’d use as an exclusive guideline to merchandise the store around. Most of the time, color at Blacklamb means artful dashes here, a light accessory there, a few statement pieces. And that’s why when we notice that we’ve steadily been buying up a certain shade that isn’t black, well, we probably should be writing about it.

Our obsession with cobalt is already well-known, but another blue that’s caught our eye lately is midnight. We’ve seen it in Marc Jacobs, on Y/Project’s runway, in nail polish, home decor, and even deeply saturated into current feature films. So dark it almost reads as black, midnight is haunting, yet deep and beautiful. Femmes fatales.
