How I love the colour cream. Even the sound of the name sounds, well... yummy. It really seems to suit my skin and it always looks expensive and classy (in my mind, at any rate.) I wish I could figure out how to dye white things that have seen better days cream coloured. I've never seen that as a dye colour. Has anyone?
Tamera Beardsley had a post on her blog called "white and beige" and it was SO gorgeous. I'm sorry, I'm not much good at providing links, so you'll have to google her. If I saw those images in a magazine, I'd rip them out and have them in my sketchbook/scrapbook.
This is my "triple dose" of cream: cream teeshirt, cream sweater (jumper, if you're English), a cream brooch of jumping fish, and a cream coat.
I especially loved the fish brooch, which I got at a boot sale (yard sale, if you're North American). It would have been lovely for it to have a great story behind it ("it was stolen from the Empress, and smuggled in a tea chest...." but all the vendor said was, "That'll be a £1". This was a fabulous stall at the boot sale, as I got a wonderful carpet bag type handbag there (£1), shoes, (£1) earrings (£1) and some other things. It seemed everything from a 5 piece set of luggage to a pair of stud earrings was £1. I just kept handing over pounds as I kept finding more and more things I liked. It was like a slot machine, except it kept paying out!
Coat: Bonmarche (now out of business)
Rest: charity shops, boot sales and the like (no smuggling stories, unfortunately)
