brown and ivory

If Mercy was drawn the same way as Pharah where she had bulking muscles, excessive body hair and animalistic features, y'all probably would be like hey that’s not accurate! She’s a femme!
Well, Pharah is one too? The only reason people butchify Pharah to the point she’s a caricature is because she’s shipped with Mercy. So the trope of stoic brown girl and fragile ivory woman can play out. One of my mutuals mentioned this, and it’s tea.

haut-wie-bleichmittel  asked:

Hey dearie recently I've been going through rough times and I was wondering if you could name me some things to do to change life a little bit and to start anew

to start anew~
♡ plant seeds in the earth (let the dirt stretch its spidery green limbs and bring forth fruit; sometimes watching another have its genesis inspires your own)
♡ dye your hair a color of the sky (dark wintery browns, honey rose blonde, snowy ivory; a change on the outside can help mold a change on the inside)
♡ collect flowers in a journal (allow blank pages to be filled with pressed petals and skeletal stems)
♡ harvest new scents (oranges vanilla clove rosemary lavender; attach the perfume with new memories rather than continue on with an old aroma)

FRIDAY FRENZY | etsyfindoftheday 4 | 8.28.15

handmade nakoma shawl by goodcompanyco // black | ivory

hipsters, this one’s for you. rock a hand-painted and super-trendy shawl in either black or white — or camel, not pictured — with sweet geometric designs. WANT.

F. B. & C. Leather

“In the windows in the avenue

Where well dressed women pause to note the newest modes in fashionable footwear, high cut shoes of kid comprise the chief display.

And when ‘Milady’ steps inside she learns that 'F. B. & C.’ Kid is the leather invariably used in colors to match her costume, such as Golden Brown, Field Mouse, Battleship Gray, Pearl Gray, Tobasco Brown and Ivory, either as whole shoes or with tops of 'F. B. & C.’ White Washable Glazed Kid 'No. 810’.

In shoes of white, which are in remarkable vogue, it is highly important to designate 'F. B. & C.’ White Washable Glazed Kid 'No. 81’, as this leather requires no mussy dressing but keeps its new and unblemished appearance by the use of 'Carbona Cleaning Fluid’.

'F. B. & C.’ Kid is the only leather that 'Fits on the Foot Like a Glove on the Hand.’

Either of these 'F. B. & C.’ tags attached to the shoes assure correct style and 'The Best There Is’ in leather.

Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Palette - Boring? Not.

I got some comments from those who were not sure quite what to make of the new UD x Gwen palette, which features - surprisingly for a lot of people - a whole lotta neutrals.

[NOTE: the animated gif images load better/faster on computers than on phones.]

Many were expecting that the palette would have some “radical” colors. Instead it’s filled with classic taupes, beiges, ivories, browns, black and just three “color” shades; a candy pink, rich cobalt blue, and yellow-gold.

I personally love the configuration. This is Naked with a shot of Vice thrown in. It’s versatile and wearable enough that it won’t sit in the back of your closet, but has just enough colorful shades to change things up and not be too boring.

I don’t find it surprising that the Gwen palette looks like this - honestly she wears very classic makeup colors most of the time. She does either a very 40s-50s vintage look with red/fuchsia lips, or a modern black/beige smoky eye with soft lips. You don’t often see her with green and purple and orange shadows.

Tip for use: Pick your neutrals, and add ONE of the three color shades to jazz things up. It’s how I usually recommend people wear strong colors anyway. Color-on-color looks nice in photos but can be garish in real life. It’s up to you though!

P.S. the lip shade I’m wearing is Ex Girlfriend, one of the Gwen lipstick shades for UD.
