I’ve had several color debates with my husband recently, which made me realize just how many color names are stolen from foods. And how imprecise that makes them. I mean, fresh raspberries are often the color of my dress, but anything made from raspberries is the color of my … everything else. (Minus necklace and exposed skin, of course.) Plums and eggplants are very similar colors in real life, but very different colors on fabric. And it’s all further complicated by the fact that no two eyes see the same color in the same way.

This is before the BIG snow hit, but you can see the first blobs of white in the background. I wore this for a party that included a screening of the undeniably trippy Star Wars Holiday Special, which aired in 1978. Imagine 10-minute stretches with nothing but Wookie dialogue consisting of grunts and howls, psychedelic dance sequences, and Princess Leia singing. Also Bea Arthur singing. Also lots of other weirdness all in the name of the Wookie Christmas equivalent, Life Day. It was a blast. read more
