A Rose By Any Other Colour

May 24th, 2010 by Selise

There has been some discussion as to the actual colour of my new cardigan. The tag simply said “red” but I’ve had vermilion, watermelon and lychee too. It looks orange to me. Bright orange. Whatever colour it is, I like it.

I feel rather academic today. It’s not a ground breaking outfit but I really like it. I had planned on buying a few more of these cardigans yesterday. Last time I was in there they had about 15 different colours. But when I went in this little fellow was all alone. It’s OK little guy, you can come home and be brothers with my other cardigans. There’s a green guy, 2 green guys actually, a few black, a purple, a coffee, another orange (or whatever colour you really are, it’s OK, we don’t discriminate here) and a mustard guy that is short sleeved so I’m not sure whether he’s technically a cardigan but he lives on your shelf.

I was going to wear my monocle today but I thought it made it all a little too much. It’s on a chain, not like I was going to walk around wearing a monocle on my eye. Not that I would be opposed to it but this particular monocle is a little too big for my eye socket and when I do manage to cram it in there my eyelashes go all weird and I totally look like a poster girl for A Clockwork Orange.

Paired with the academic look, these beaded bangles make me feel like my best friend went to Africa on summer break while I stayed home and took summer classes. I don’t really know what that feels like. I went to college for about 3 weeks before I dropped out. And my best friend has never been to Africa. His Dad is from Rhodesia though. That’s pretty cool.
