Nothing Gold can Stay: April’s ROYGBiV entry

Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf,
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day
Nothing gold can stay.

Robert Frost

I’m not a massive fan of yellow in any shade so I struggled slightly this month. Should I go for delicate virtuous lemon or brassy golden plate, what about shimmering leaf shaped Aureolin leather or soft vanilla. I bounced back and forth, unable to make a decision until I hit upon this, that slightly unusual pairing of mustard skirt and top the same shade as a field of sun ripe maize held together with a river of violets. The off-hand had to be the Lei of the Lifegiver, not only do the colours match perfectly but I always think of tulips and daffodils when I think of yellow, those bright flowers which herald spring and a posy ties the whole thing together perfectly.

  1. I’m not a fan of yellow (or orange for that matter) but you’ve created a lovely set indeed. Love the colours of the off-hand here.

  2. I’ve never really liked that robe. Well, until you paired it with all the pieces that really go well with it. Lovely set!

  3. That was the dress i was really wanting to use, but i just couldn’t make it work! You have done a brilliant job !! I love it!

  4. That is a really lovely set! It makes me think of a yellow crocus peeping up through the snow in early spring.🙂

  5. I’m not a fan of yellow either, but your set is pretty impressive despite that. I like how you managed to find purple-y pieces to offset the ghastliness of the yellow– I think that’s the only thing making it stylish ;P

    • It’s definitely a tradeoff but I’m pretty happy with how it came out. Think I might wear it temporarily, however I suspect the yellowness would annoy me fairly quickly.
