Pantone’s Color of the Year 2011

Every year I look forward to December for five reasons.
Since Monday I have been obsessing over reason number 4….
What will the Pantone color of next year BE?!
I was almost hit by a PANTONE® 14-0848 Mimosa colored cab while
contemplating this as I crossed Broadway the morning of the big announcement.


When i got back from lunch yesterday I got the call.  Luckily, Best Friend @DuchessOJustice was on it. Keeper of my heart and best interests in the absence of anyone with testosrone, she linked me accordingly. I’ve been seeing through Paris-toned spectacles ever since. 

Withouth further ado, here is She Sure is Sketchy’s take on this year’s Pantone:

This is the song I sung this morning while thinking of Honeysuckle.


Last year, when Pantone bent to my will, and chose the most beautiful color on the planet for 2010, I knew a moment of magic had happened.  All year, whenever I found myself bathed in 15-5519 I would close my eyes, do a slow circle and make a wish.  That’s pretty much how I found myself in Nassau, a lot of Turquoise wishes just came true

It is beautifully painful for me to let go of that flawless, perfect tone of  two thousand and ten. I have elected that a new 18-2120 gloss for my pout will mark the transition with a satisfactory amount of bliss and respect. With that I’m off to Sephora. First Honeysuckle wish of the year comes true! 

I wish you a Merry Pantone!
