When shooting Pop of Color earlier this year I already had a hunch that I would inevitably also cherish “white” at least once this season. Thought I had covered that already though: binge watching Walter White breaking bad, bleeding myself white (and my bank account red) by (again) buying too many shoes - and the White Russians consumed... oh-lala and you don’t want to hear the details.
I know, I know, not really what you gals had in mind. So, while turning the heat up inside (brrrrrr, cold), am digging deep into my fashion closet, and VOILA: out they come. Off-white furry jackets, thick-knitted scarves, cosy turtlenecks (yes: totally wearable again), all right in time for December to officially kick off winter and start battling the crispy cold.
Although it’s fun to celebrate 50 shades of white outside, nothing beats taking that party inside too. You know, lighting some candles, pouring some tea, cuddling under thick blankets, AND: staring at the most predominant white for some time to come: your skin tone. But who cares: pale is the new black and there are still enough White Russians available to forget about overrated details.
Happy first of December!
