52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Ruby

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Ruby. Strangely the color ruby is not a red like the gemstone but it's more a pink. But this bloggers challenge has been a lot about interpretations and discoveries. So I decided to go for the stone color.
Also I discovered as I look each week for the exact color on wikipedia that for a same color name, if you change the language, you don't have the same color at all. Example with the English page for khaki that is a beige and the same name on the French page for kaki is a green. I discovered that after a fight with a friend who was telling me an item was kakhi and me I was saying not at all, and far from it. In the end we were both right in our own languages.

    This coat is excellent to accessorize. I styled it in dark blue a few months ago but totally different result: http://miyokoismagic.blogspot.com/2011/02/scooter.html
