My love of all things ombre started in high school, with my oboe reed making. (True, potentially an embarrassing over share, who doesn’t love a home-made oboe reed with purple ombre thread.)Since then I hadn’t revisited ombre until about a year ago.

It all began again with an infatuation with Gullianna Rancic’s hair. From there I started noticing I kept purchasing or wanting to purchase ombre items, in particular, this fabulous shirt down below. Then a necklace, then a skirt. And now I have the hair to match.

Shirt is by Red Haute, picked up at great boutique in Minneapolis. Hair color is by CJ at the Aveda Gordon Salon in Chicago.

For some it may be too much. For me it’s just enough.

I need it, and love it!
