The Sun Sets on 2012 and Tangerine Tango

Just a couple more days and we will watch the sun set on 2012 and on Pantone‘s colour of the year for 2012, Tangerine Tango.

I already mentioned the other day that I don’t want to go green. And that probably has a lot to do with the fact that I absolutely loved the colour of 2012. Tangerine Tango, my orange crush for a whole year I could buy and wear as much orange as I wanted…and man did I want!

Tangerine Dream: This was only part of the orange crush from 2012! Not to mention all the items I lusted after but didn’t purchase.

The Sunset of Colour: Goodbye Tangerine Tango. It will be sad to see you go. I promise to hang onto you in my wardrobe as long as I can and keep you in my heart until you return again. You were popular in the late 70’s and again in 2012. Hopefully I don’t have to wait another 30 or 40 years for you to make a comeback.

I will shed a tear as my favourite colour sees the end of its glory days and the sun sets on 2012 and Tangerine Tango.
