Catch of the Week: The Colors of Fall

Time to parade my prudently priced purchases of the week! 

I've been noticing a lot of the new fall colors lately (mustard, anyone?) I mean, like, chas v'shalom that we should wear the same colors every fall! How would the hotshots in Paris or wherever they have their dens of gashmiyus (tsk, tsk) make any money, the poor pampered things, if we didn't have to hew to an entirely new spectrum of clothing every few months?

But alas! to Paris's great sorrow, FrugalFrum does not fall for such tactics. Well, okay, she does, but she doesn't singlehandedly sponsor some designer label's mansion on the Champs Elysees. Okay, maybe she does, after a while, when all the weekly $2, $4, $5 & $6 tops start adding up...but we won't discuss such depressing topics on this delightful blog. The important thing is that I buy my new colors cheap, cheap, cheap.

Fall 2012 Colors

According to the folks at Pantone, this season's theme is "the magic of color," supposedly playing on a fantasy theme of princesses and castles, etc, etc. Lah di dah. Well excuse me if I don't see Harry Potter flourishing his wand represented in a few reds, blues and greens. How shamefully unimaginative of me.

Anyway, I brought home some great new stuff after making my shopping rounds, and guess what! I was even yotzei some of the new tones. I got in the blue, the rose, the orange (does that style look familiar?) and the gray.

  1. After reading your confession that your "unique fashion sense" runs away with you, I was just waiting for the pic of the bluse top layered beneath the bright orange tunic. Whew!

    1. Hey, great idea! Now I have an outfit to wear tomorrow!

      OK, you can stop hyperventilating; I was kidding. :)

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog. You have a cute blog! Have a good Shabbos!
