Tiffany blue with bows on



Top: ASOS, Belt: Topshop, Skirt: Vintage - thrifted, Heels: River Island at ASOS, Initial “C” necklace: ASOS, Hair bow: Unknown, Watch: Gift (ASOS) similar, Tortoiseshell cuff: Accessorize, Gold bracelet: New Look, Gold/blue ring: F+F, Gold band ring: ASOS, Lips: Revlon Moon Drops Orange









Tiffany Blue: what a gorgeous colour. This top is new (season) from ASOS - it was described as Mint but I think Tiffany Blue sounds much nicer. (Normally I wait till things are on sale before buying, but I loved it so much I got it straight away. I did however use a 20% voucher, so still didn't pay full price...!)

But did you know:

The Tiffany Blue colour is protected as a colour trademark by Tiffany & Co. It’s produced as a private custom colour by Pantone, with PMS number 1837, the number deriving from the year of Tiffany's foundation. As a trademarked colour, it is not publicly available and is not printed in the Pantone Matching System swatch books. (Source: wikipedia) That's pretty cool, if you ask me.

And oh how I Y the little bows on the sleeves. I liked the top contrasted against my 70s woolly maxi skirt ;)



P.S. Please don't forget if you have a minute to vote for me on Refinery29's Next Big Style Blogger contest (see this post for all the details), I'd really appreciate it... and if you have already - thank you so much!!!

    1. Aww thank you, Bethany - the picture doesn't quite show it, but the plait is hair from both sides - instead of doing it in the centre it's a fishtail plait done on the right side of my head. You can sort of see the piece of hair that's been swept round from the left - it looks like a darker piece of hair where a low ponytail would be tied. I made it up simply to save my arms aching at the back!! C xoxo

  5. That kind of makes me want to trademark my own color. Not to use it really, just so I can say I did. And forbid people from using it. Mwahaha. :)

    1. Do you know what, Jenn, I thought just that when I was writing the post... I came up with Catherine Cream (hmm, bit dull) or Lamb Lavender. Doesn't quite have the same ring to it??!! C x
