Pantone- Color of the year

The key fashion color for next season is Rose Quartz. According to Pantone, this color descended from the soft, smooth colors of the Spring collections. Rose Quartz is a delicate and soft color that is perfect for the early summer months. It can be so delicate to wear through the summer when the weather heats up. Rose Quartz is a chic and passionate color, perfect for everyday wear.Rose_Quartz_1

From the research I did on pantone.com, there are not different colors projected for home goods. The colors for both fashion and home goods are the same. The key color for this year in home goods is Marsala.

A fashion item that will best employ the color of the year is, light coats. Light summer coats and cardigans would be the best fashion accessory, for the 2016 color Rose Quartz because it will accent the entire outfit. It will give the outfit a soft, delicate and sophisticated feel. As for home goods, Rose Quartz will be best in paint. This color will turn any room into a peaceful and soothing environment. Also a nice bouquet of roses will be great to accent any room in the house, with this calming color.00697_LightPink-l

Exotic Sales Professional

I had the pleasure of interviewing professional car sales expert, from Stockton California the great Antonio Sandoval. He is currently working at Gateway Classic Cars in Ft. Lauderdale Florida, selling rare classic cars to the many cars fanatics around the world. We discuss his exciting passion for cars and racing from beginning to the present, and the many great opportunities the future has in store for him.

How old were you when your passion for cars grew? 

It grew when I bought my ’07 Mustang GT. So when I was 18.

Do you see cars as an art? Why or why not? 

Yes I definitely see cars as an art. In this day and age to get by in the consumer market is by having a very unique styling exterior/interior/drivetrain. That means a creative designer has to draft up what the future car may look like. So the cars you see out on the road is the final art piece brought to life. And with any art, the artwork with the best backstory or history will be rare and desirable.

Have you ever raced on the track? If so what was your fastest time and what car did you use?

Yes, I raced on a quarter mile and eighth mile track. On the 1/4 mile I did a 13.2 seconds in my ’07 Mustang GT.  On the 1/8th track I raced my buddy’s ’07 BMW 335i, the time i don’t remember.

What is one of your fondest memories you have of racing? Always being the one people want to race against because of how many times they have seen me race. Being THAT GUY who has a fast mustang.

What state of mind do you step into when you are racing?

Calm and make sure I am making the consistent race winning choices and actions. At the same time trying to keep control of my excitement.130-2

When did you decide you wanted cars and sales to be your career?

When I figured out that the regular/dead end job stuff was not cutting it for me.

What are your goals/dreams in life?

Have all of life’s options open to my family and me and choose freely/fearlessly for myself with out any restrictions.

If you were given the opportunity to drive any car, which one would you choose and why?

Great question, I would have to choose to drive all cars ever made. There would not be a car that is over or under any other that I would want to drive.

Which car is your all time favorite to drive and why?

My Mustang, because it was mine. I had put my time and energy to make it drive like I wanted it to. Sooner or later that will change when I start buying more cars but all cars I drive or have driven were awesome and my favorite.

(Gateway Classic Cars in Ft. Lauderdale currently for sale)

If you could travel and perform for one Country, outside of the U.S., what Country would you choose and why?

Europe, because of all the awesome the roads and cars they have.

Let’s talk about Charities and Causes. Are there any Charities/Causes that you currently donate to or would donate to?

I support and donate to causes that support military veterans transitioning from military to civilian.

It’s always fun to ask this question; if not a classic car salesperson what line of work do you think you would be in? 

Organic hydroponic farmer.

Thank you for your time Antonio. Any final message to the many classic car fans? 

Lets keep the car world alive and strong by supporting your local car shows and car meets in your respective areas. Keep it safe and friendly.

Quality clothing & awesome prices!

My current favorite retail store is Old Navy. The great quality of the clothing, and the way they set up the store draws me into the environment. The store and website stands out among other retailers because of its competitive prices and great quality in clothing. Also the advertising ads are fun and display the prices of the clothing, most retailers do not do this in their ads. Here are some examples of what I mean.

The huge windows they have, attracts me because I can see all the front section of the store from the outside. While standing outside I can see the new pieces they have on display and the sales they have going on. This draws me into the store. While I am inside, I see the prices hanging from every fixture. This is appealing to me because I can look at the price and look at the garment and if I like it I can grab my size and try it on. If I don’t I can just continue to walk around the store. The flow of the fixtures is also appealing to me. I love how they set up the store, it feels welcoming and family friendly.
