Pantone says that these are the fashion colors for next spring. I don’t like grayed colors, but at least most of these are bright. Lime green! Bright yellow! Red! I know that I like the strange color names they had in the past, but it is annoying if you can’t even tell what the color is from the name (tender shoots = dumb). Even if the name is stupid, I love that color. I just made a sweater in the African Violet color oddly enough.
I went out shoe shopping this week for a pair of plain black flats that were comfortable enough to wear to the company office party where you stand around for hours and sometimes have to park quite a distance away and walk to get there. I couldn’t find any plain shoes anywhere. My last pair lasted for about 15 years but now hurt my feet, so time to invest in a new pair. Oh wait, I did see a pair of black flats at a fancy department store, but $200 is too steep for me this year. I finally did what I usually do and went to SAS. The flats have a strap making them look like a girlish Mary Jane shoe, but since I always wear black slacks to these events, only the toes will show. And the comfort level is sky high. The unfashionable strap also makes them easier to walk a long way in. I am not a person who likes to shop. In addition, the shoe has the same name as my grandmother.
