Colour My Week with White

Monday, December 13, 2010

With snow scattering much of Europe and North America, providing picturesque winter wonderland landscapes, and Christmas just around the corner, I have chosen white for this week's 'Colour My Week', and would like to invite readers to participate by linking your own white items or finds back to this blog post.

For some, white may not be considered a colour at all, but more of a blank canvas to introduce other colours to. In the Western world, white is considered the traditional colour for brides, whereas in the East, white is considered a colour of mourning and funerals * c/o desktoppub.about.com

W
e see white as a colour in nature; snow, pearls, chalk, milk, dandelions and seashells to name a few.

In fashion, according to fabsugar.com.au the
LWLD (Little White Lace Dress) has recently replaced the LBD (Little Black Dress) in popularity.
