Did you receive your Fire Mountain Gems Mega Catalogue yet? Flip through it until you see a page with the heading "Color Forecast Guide." (Sorry, I don't have the page number because I tore the page out and it doesn't have a page number on it.)
Perhaps this is just one of those secrete global conspiracies... I tend to think so... but did you know that there is an international "team" who decides - for us - what colors we'll be wearing over a year from now. Hey, I can understand telling us what this fall and winter's fashion colors are/will be, based on what designer have been working on...
(Hmmmm. I'm liking the teal - what they are calling "peacock", and that "cayanne" is my kind of red! But "bubble gum"?! And what they call "antique sage" isn't even green! Isn't sage green? Yeah, this coming from a gal who insisted her shirt was rust when Maggio Maggio said it was pink.)
I can even understand being able to surmise Spring 2008's colors... for the same reasons as I mentioned earlier - you know, those crazy fashion Moguls who decide what styles they want people to wear (that rant I'll save for another day).
(What the heck is "framboise"? And who would wear a color called "vitric" - sounds like something from a laboratory. And who comes up with names like "suffuse" and "fettle", or "helenic." Oooo ooo! Look, there's a "raven"! Oh. It's just a dark gray.)
But who are they trying to fool? Coming up with the colors that will be the latest trends in Fall-Winter 2008/2009?
I mean, I don't even know what color I'm going to wear tomorrow.
