have been quietly obsessing over this colour scheme for a while. decided to call it sherbert. yes, i know the correct spelling is sherbet – but i pronounce it sherbert. and since i am making up a colour scheme i may as well make up a word, too. it’s somewhere between art deco pink, peach, salmon and dusty rose… i guess it’s all of them combined.

clothing sources:

row 1: boyfriend shirt ; handbag ; top
row 2: chinos ; sandals ; blouse
row 3: t-shirt ; duffel bag ; clogs

photo credits:

row 1: tara ; juan bitar ; rising70 ; mallory dowd
row 2: samantha casolari ; mark weaver ; super bomba
row 3: erin powers ; laurent champoussin.
row 4: xavier encinas ; suzy wimbourne ; sara peixoto ; geraldine nicolo

    The APC top at bottom left, and the champoussin photo of sun through clouds are just perfect. I know I’m going to start saying sherbert now…

    No way! I have spent a whole lot of years convinced it was sherbert. I can’t imagine saying it any other way!

    This is another amazingly designed layout – I’ve been looking at that a.p.c. shirt and the sandal/clogs quite often over the last week or so too – they are such an easy-going, muted kind of burnt sienna colour – art deco pink is definitely a good way of describing it.

    I would have every single thing of it. I love the color, a hybrid between plain nude an brown. The top from the third photo is super cute.

    I guess I should mention I was a little nervous about the color on my pale skin until I saw your post. Thank you!

  • Reply JP Wednesday 31 August, 2011 at 4:16 pm

    That’s the perfect name for that colour! Great collection. You should make up more colour names :)

    I too call it sherbert… or sherburt. This colour is perfect for people afraid of straight-up pink (like me)!

    The shoes, the shoes! Oh my goodness the shoes!

    Beautiful images and beautifully put together…

  • Reply Debra Thursday 1 September, 2011 at 8:50 am

    So surreal. On Monday I was thinking about the scene from Austin Powers with Christian Slater. You’re right, it should be sherbert and not sherbet (my autocorrect just disagreed with us).

  • Reply Katie Friday 2 September, 2011 at 6:06 pm

    Very creative way to display such a nice color! I’ve always called it “you know, that sexy nude-ish pink.” I think “Sherbert” might fit better on a crayon.
