The colours in my photos have disappointed me a little as my camisole is really pinker than it appears here. Today I felt in the mood for an artificial and unnatural candy-floss pop of colour, a peek into the Hello Kitty world with its both hard and soft clashing colours. Thus my atypical backdrop, a grey and black concrete and glass monolith all hard edges and manmade lines with not a speck of nature to be seen. (And how fortuitous that the building should have my initial inset in marble and brass in it's doorstep?!)
I'm also inspired by this Josh Goot dress I spied in the latest Vogue magazine; the colours so sharp, impossibly lolly-pink and blue with the touches of stark black and white; stepping just out of a sci-fi cartoon world. Nothing natural here. Bring on the digital age, yeah. I would love to have this dress in my wardrobe, but for now I'll just have to settle for reproducing its colour scheme as best I can with what I've already got, but isn't this fabric out of this world?
Though if I really look at these hues again wouldn't they be just right for a sunrise peeping over ocean waters lapping onto pristine beach sands, the charred remains of a midnight driftwood campfire scattered about.... the epitome of a natural environs.... ah nature always has one tucked up the sleeve, does it not? Just when fashion has contrived a seemingly artificial colour scheme mother nature slips in the reminder of a colourama of her own...
