About MAUVE



Sunnies: Francesca’s (worn here)| Hat: BCBG| Top: Cotton Stretch| Jeans: Lovesick| Sweater: 14th & Union | Shoes: Flounce (also worn here & here)

I remember back in the day there was a color called Mauve. Have you heard of it before? When I put this monochrome ensemble together, it immediately came to my mind! 
There seems to be a tendency to call/name previously known common colors by a new name. For instance, the dominant color in the palette might be called 'dusty rose', 'rose quartz', and so on…
However, since I am officially from the old school, I will refer to the dominating hue as Mauve, because it reminds me of days long past :)

Until next time,
XO

  2. You look so pretty! Mauve kind of reminds of Pantone's Dusty Cedar too!
