Pinterest Take 5: Persimmon


I bought an orange, or, more precisely, that orange-veering-to-coral-pink known as persimmon, sweatshirt last week.  At least five people have since told me that it is the ‘colour of the season’.

All I know is that if you have boring mid-brown hair and pale skin with a warm undertone as I have, there is no more flattering colour on earth, and you will have to rip this sweatshirt from my back.

It’s been popping up all over Pinterest too.

    I have these awesome vera wang flats in persimmon. I am glad we’re not the same size. I would be afraid you would steal them.

    @kimberly Persimmon sounds SO much more classy than Tangerine Tango. What was Pantone thinking?
