I would have said that the predominant color of honeysuckle is white/yellow, no?

kkvgz, Thursday, 13 January 2011 21:29 (eleven years ago) link

For people who thinks this shit doesn't mean anything, I'd like to direct you to the past two colors of the year:

i do a lot better with jewel tones :(

tehresa, Monday, 17 January 2011 21:37 (eleven years ago) link

i think it can be done more jewel toned? like the slightly hotter pink versions of it?
i'm into it. i painted my nails a sort of honeysuckle the other day and it made me happy. so i guess it works.

T - I think some of the other colors they've picked for spring in that link I posted would look great on you. I'm thinking the blue and green ones.

everything about fashion is made up

i also think "colour palettes" are made up
a lot of things go with a lot of other things

v true

two months pass...

so i was in a meeting earlier this morning where someone was discussing the potential of using models for an event, and said 'i'll get the pantone list for this spring's colors' and i wanted SO badly to be like 'duh, it's honeysuckle.' but i felt like i would be overstepping since i know nothing about fashion and i was supposed to be there to discuss the operatic elements of the event.

tehresa, Friday, 25 March 2011 17:26 (eleven years ago) link


you should have said it!

ENBB, Friday, 25 March 2011 17:32 (eleven years ago) link

With the "duh", of course. :)

ENBB, Friday, 25 March 2011 17:33 (eleven years ago) link

i mentioned it quietly to one of the people at the close of the meeting.

tehresa, Friday, 25 March 2011 17:37 (eleven years ago) link

you should have been all "don't you ppl ever read the Internet"

gr8080, Friday, 25 March 2011 18:04 (eleven years ago) link

i would have just yelled it immediately.

jaxon, Friday, 25 March 2011 22:04 (eleven years ago) link

gr8080, Saturday, 26 March 2011 01:51 (eleven years ago) link

I would never pull the stamen and suck the juice out of one of those red ones though. (Pleasant Plains), Wednesday, 30 March 2011 05:35 (eleven years ago) link

Oooh those are pretty but I still feel like the name honeysuckle would make most people think of a white or pale yellow.

PP otm too - I wouldn't suck the juice outta those babies either even though it's prob fine.

I love orange even though I have absolutely 0 orange clothes. Maybe that'll change if this gets popular.

ENBB, Friday, 13 January 2012 19:25 (ten years ago) link

oh shit i made a mental note to start a new thread when ilx came back-- good lookin out erica

⚓ (gr8080), Friday, 13 January 2012 19:52 (ten years ago) link

i like this tangerine! if it has blue undertones I will totally wear it.
i ended up buying three or four sweaters and a blouse in bright pink last year because it suits me.. figure if i am going to wear color instead of the usual navy/black/gray, it should be as bright as possible.

seriously, THIS GUY (daria-g), Saturday, 14 January 2012 17:51 (ten years ago) link

Hm I have paint almost that color from a failed bathroom experiment that I just decided to use for a stripey effect in my entry hall.
