I love white; I told you that. But nowdays white comes in at least 60 shades (of white this time; none of them being not even close to grey!). There are warm whites and cold whites. Really? White is white...cold as and, as warmer it, is as creamier it gets. Then I like green. Not so much apple green. Sorry. I forgot that it is an old fashioned term. These days it is called lime green and apparently it is not so popular in the States. Why? Don't ask me; ask them!
You know how much I love pink, but I have some problems with magenta. You know what I mean. That shade between pink and purple, mostly pink with a purple splash...or something like that. As a little girl, I used to call it freesia pink, but now I am a modern girl, so magenta it is. But just between you and I, pink is just pink. Excuse me if I don't always get more specific when I buy pink dresses online. I should know better. I should remember that the next question an outlet would ask is what kind of pink...baby pink, light pink, hot pink...and the list goes on. There is even a champagne pink. Now give me a break. The color is not even close to strawberry champagne; it is more like a creamier something. Same with turquoise. That great bluish- greenish color. But nah again. The contemporary name is teal, what ever that means.
I am just a girl who loves colors and colorful outfits. I don't have to know every shade of blue I am no artist and I don't work with color. However, I was asked recently if the dress I want is in Egyptian blue or navy blue. Please tell me the difference cos I don't see any. Not when it's about fabric and dresses. But I don't want to look old fashioned cos I'm not, so I replied after a moment of silence (just to make me look less blonde!) that none of those shades of blue were right with my skin color. I said that the only shade that would made me feel happy was Ultramarine. 1-0 for me, guys. Let them now find the difference cos again not a lot!
Stop me here please. Don't let me go into the entire polemic regarding black. I have to be very careful when I chose online a black little dress....because black is not black anymore. The store would want me happy so their next question would be licorice black or black bean. Please don't ask me...ask God; he knows everything. I am just a blondie who wants to dress colorful. Also one who is happy to live in the 21st Century. No, not a nana, old fashioned somebody. Therefore, I love the fact that online shops (European ones, of course) ask all these questions about shade of colors. I would never admit I have no idea what they want. I will just pick one of their options and wear the outfit as it is...like there is no tomorrow. Because I know better....that black is black and white is white.
But I am not surprised that we are saying something and understanding something else. New names are given to old things...to make them look less (or more important). There is no abortion anymore....we call it termination now. No divorces....just separations. No mistresses....just the other women. No drugs...just recreational stuff. No hopeless/ useless wealthy nobodies....we call them now socialites. I could give you more examples, but I am sure you know them all....because they are used every day...by everybody. See you, guys, tomorrow...which these days is CU:)
