166 days to go. The Wow Factor: Michelle Obama Wardrobe Challenge Day 3



When my youngest son comes home from school he shows me his little book of Wow words.
These are new, exciting words which will enhance his vocabulary.
And I love finding new wow words too.
My wow word of the moment is Cerulean.
I watched The Devil Wears Prada at the weekend and listened to Miranda's rant about Andreas' lump blue sweater.
I looked it up - probably most of you know already - and loved the word.
Cerulean may be applied to a range of hues from deep blue, sky-blue, bright blue or azure through to greenish blue.
Apparently the word is probably derived from the Latin word caeruleus, "dark blue, blue or blue-green", which in turn probably derives from caelulum, diminutive of caelum, "heaven, sky".
Then, just as always - the word is everywhere.
Kasmira is having a Cerulean Week.
I also discovered I had a Cerulean cardigan too.
Just like Michelle!

STOP PRESS
Check out the fantastic Polyvore Imogen has created for me.
Guess what next week's challenge will be!
Today I am wearing:
black boots - dorothy perkins
dress - new look
cardigan - principles petite
belt - marks and spence
pearls- hong kong

Oooh, that cerulean sweater is smashing. I like the ensemble paired with the knee-high boots.

Nice! And matching (or closely relating) the color of the boots, tights, skirt make for a longer look.

Another great outfit, Jane. Cerulean is a perfect colour for you! Loved the Devil wears Prada. Meryl Streep is magnificent in it as usual. Imogen's outfits for you are so great! Ciao. A.

What a great outfit on you! You look so amazing with a defined waist like that.

Imogen's polyvore is great! Can't wait to see your theme week next week!

Oh, and cerulean is one of my favourite words - I learned to oil paint when I was about 7 years old. Cerulean is a particular shade of blue when it comes to paint: like the deepest blue of the sky on a summer day.

I loved that rant in Devil wears Prada - one of my favourite part of the movie.

You look great as ever!

I love this look -- and this is another color that looks great on you. But the supa-fab belt just puts the outfit over the top -- fantastic! I wish I had a belt like that.
