Orange?

Posted on: 26 October 2008

I love the colours of Autumn, especially the beautiful shades of orange in the trees. Though for me, Orange is a colour I rarely wear, mostly because it's just one of those colours where you just have to find the right shade. I am the same with red too and up until recently, yellow. However last Summer I bought two yellow dresses hoping to break the cycle. Maybe I can do the the same with red? Are there any colours that you find hard to wear?
I'm wearing...
Cardi (Urban Outfitters)
Dress (HK)
Belt (Vintage)
Navy Tights (Topshop)
Oxfords (Topshop)
Necklace (HK)

I have been looking for some black Oxfords for a long time and I couldn't let this pair from Topshop pass me by. They are a teeny bit too big but nothing that an insole hasn't sorted out for me! I'm off to work in a bit for a meeting (on a Sunday?!) but at least I get paid for it. They offered me a full time job working in the stock room but I told them I would rather work on the floor with people! Imagine being cooped up in a warm stockroom with only the generator for company!

  9. Congratulations on the job offer, even if it wasn't what you wanted. At least it was an offer. Good for you for sticking up for what you really wanted.

    I think your feelings about orange are shared by many. It can be a difficult color. Yellow is my problem color. I just can't seem to get it right.

  13. I don't like wearing brown but thats purely psychological! I've really pale skin so orange, lime green, even yellow which I love - those citrusy colours just make me look sick!

  14. Personally I never wear light blue, makes me look washed out for some reason.. and love the coloured tights with the belted cardi!

  15. Beige isn't excellent on me, neither is baby pink, it really doesn't suit my skin tone. But i still wear it just with a different colour near my face. I wear lots of layers you see.
