So there I was, innocently reading this book and along comes a line that said “His world had become beige, passionless and flat.” As a beige-lover I was outraged. There’s so many things wrong with that sentence it’s hard to know where to start, but first lets dispense with the idea that beige is flat.
Beige is a color that reflects light – creating depth and texture that darker colors often lose. It also creates softer shadows than white. You can see the depth and richness of beige in this BoA Creations dress. Beige is a rich color and comes in many variations.
Let’s also throw away the idea that beige is passionless – beige projects a sustained passion. Red is often the color most associated with passion – but red is obvious, blatant, it’s the quickie of color passion. Beige is subtle, mysterious, the slow seduction of color passion.
The weather’s nippy so I tossed on a jacket to wear with my dress – Nadine from InStyle. The perfect shoes were an old pair from VIVA – Aemilia in Chocolate and Ivory.
The jewelry is from Caitlyn’s – her wooden set. It’s natural hues tie it beautifully to the dress and jacket.
