What the Wenge?


This was the hardest colour for me so far in the Blogger Colour Challenge.  I just could not get my head around what 'wenge' as a colour is.  Google it and see the variations!  Also there is absolutely no clothing on marketplace that comes up when you search 'wenge'.

In the end I asked a few friends then rummaged through my inventory and tried on a lot until I came up with this dress (that I decided to use as a top).  I am still not thoroughly happy, but I do love the coffee and shopping bags!

Oh, and thanks to Lavim who gave me the cup holding pose!  I won't steal your wallet for at least 24 hours!

    You are welcome. Beware the next time you and Ash go for my wallet I added traps and such. Think Indiana Jones type...
