Fuchsia is probably my favorite f-word. Ever since having kids, I’ve substituted f-bombs with words like “fuchsia” or “Farquad” (the Napoleon-esque ruler of Shrek fame).

I think it’s a really versatile color; I could envision it used at loud ’80s fashion party or as an accent at an elegant banquet.
