52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Mauve

As soon as I saw the color challenge for this week these hilarious lines from Stephen Sondheim’s Broadway musical Into The Woods popped into my mind:
[FLORINDA]
Never wear mauve at a ball…
[LUCINDA]
Or pink…
[STEPMOTHER]
Or open your mouth…

If you’ve never seen the show, check it out, it is one of my favorites, very poignant and funny. However, I did make Bruce wear mauve to the ball, and he was a very good sport about it, as he would have rather been wearing his new Batman costume. Smile  Thanks for being mauvelous, Bruce!

(For you curious folk I have included the clip from the musical at the end of the post! Enjoy!)

    I think being partners in mauve is a very cute idea 😉 and I agree with Laila, the hairpiece makes it, it matches so beautifully with the dress.
