Ecru — what a strange sounding word. For some reason it doesn’t sound like this vintagey respectable shade of tan. Darker than beige, lighter than brown. I stared at the sample at 52 Weeks of Color Challenge and had two visions. One, a vintage pencil skirt suit. Two, a safari outfit. Despite a friend’s request to combine both, I didn’t go hunting for a vintage safari outfit, although I did buy something just for the colour challenge. First time so far! Although I have a feeling that these light, soft colours will be problematic for me. I tremble in fear just thinking of pastels.
Miss Ecru has packed her bags — even the one with a steampunk propeller — and poured herself a glass of champagne for bon voyage, and is ready to go! Where will she go? Who knows~ Perhaps she’s off to Paris for delightful dallying, perhaps to London for the latest scandalous season in high society, perhaps to Madrid to laze underneath a parasol and fan herself in the heat… the destination does not matter, it’s all about the moment of departure.
