Colette Fall Palette Challenge 2011

Hello lovely readers! A very happy Friday to you all :)

You may have seen from the bagde in my right side bar that I have decided to take part in the Colette Fall Palette Challenge, it's very exciting. Basically you collect a whole bunch of inspirational material and from these you select the colours that you will work with for all you fall (or autumn to us Brits!) sewing. 

Now I'm still not sure have much sewing I will able to get done over the next however many months that I'm on tour, what with the difficulties of carting my sewing machine around the country and such, but I have always loved these palette challenges so I figured why not give it a go and if I don't to do all that much sewing then there's no harm done. Plus I adore autumn colours (perhaps it's because as a red head born in September I really am an autumn girl!) and I don't have as many of these as I'd want in my wardrobe.

And now comes the exciting part, my first ever Mood Board!! I cannot tell you have much fun I had putting this together, and I know it's a bit rough but I don't think it's bad for a first try!

I think that the colours I have chosen will give me a nice combination of neutrals and statement pieces, plus I'm really enjoying how pretty they all look together :) I know that anything I make in these colours I will wear and wear because anything that I own in these shades already gets worn to death!

So there you have it, my mood board completed and my palette selected and ready to go! Now I just need to work out what I want to sew and wether or not I'll be able to get any of it done... Watch this space!

Bye for now!

You picked a really gorgeous palette. These are the same colors (minus a couple) I was going for myself this fall. Plus I love the example photos, what lovely outfits!

Oh i love your mood board! I might actually pick up very similar colours myself.
I wish it would be easy here aswell. But getting the exact colours you want is a pain in the bum here in Finland. Especially if you're looking for a colour which is not currently in fashion. But I still might try the challenge. Atleast it would be fun to gather the mood board even though making it turning into actual clothing might be difficult.
