One Short Day, In the Emerald City


This Friday, and possibly a few more Friday's to come, I've decided to link up with Long Distance Loving for her feature of Friday Fancies! This week she's chosen the color Emerald, since it is the panatone color of the year and all. 

Personally, I love the fact that this is the color of the year because with my pale skin, dark jewel tones are perfect for me. Whenever I see something emerald/ruby/cobalt I am immediately drawn to it and want to purchase it. 

I chose to keep each item under $50, so not to tempt myself to fall in love with something that I may not be able to afford. Although it's very tempting to just create a mood board that has an unlimited price range. 

Whenever I think of the color emerald, I think of the song One Short Day from the cast of Wicked. Growing up I fell in love with musicals early on, and whenever I discovered wicked all bets were off. It's one of my favorite plays, to date (even though I haven't seen it live, unless you count youtube videos). 

What colors are you naturally drawn to?

  1. i cant believe all those pieces are under $50- they're gorgeous! and i completely agree with you- jewel tones with pale skin looks so, so good. i almost never gravitate to them though, which is so wierd

  11. Loving the tops in the middle. Perfect for any occasion. Never seen the musical, but those youtube videos. ;) I think, it counts to 50% until we both get to see it live.
