|Heading out in my DVF frock|
This week I wore it to a "Hawaii 5-O" 50th birthday party.
"Like your dress" said a friend.
"Thanks" I replied "But there is something about the pattern that is not quite me."
"I hate to tell you" said my friend "But the flowers on it look really phallic."
Yesterday I was looking through 50 shades of grey... with our colour genius friend, Kathy Farley of ArtDecor. (No, not that Shades of Grey, the actual colour.) The white walls in the living room don't do much for our painting so we were looking for a blue-ish-grey.
|Our living room with the paint chips: which grey would you pick?|
"This one has too much brown, this one has green in it and this one has a bit of red in it" colour genius Kathy said, and so on. They all looked just grey to me. This one was just right.
We're also painting our chartreuse-green front door a bright lemon yellow.
What does this all mean?
(And today I'm over at Expat Focus with author and blogger Toni Hargis talking about what it's like to be a Mum abroad. Turns out you get to the crazy wine lady and it's all good!)
