The Spring 2008 collections were full of bold & bright colors, and it won’t be long before those cheerful hues infiltrate our city streets. I’m all for pairing bright shoes, bags, & accessories with my ensembles, but one color that is virtually non-existent in my closet is the color ORANGE. I’m not sure why exactly I’ve steered clear of the hue for so long, but I think it has something to do with my pale skin. I’ve always associated Orange with those blessed with skin a shade darker than ghost. Anyone with a tan can rock Orange without a second thought, but I’ve been reconsidering the color for myself. I am learning to love the color…to me it is modern, fresh, & cheerful three things that we could all benefit from by upping our daily intake! As such, I find myself increasingly drawn to all things citrus! Here are a few items that are guaranteed to rid you of your winter blues!

    I dig the orange, something new. You’ve got a great flare.

    Great collection, makes me think twice about orange. Love the fashion week layouts too. Great job.
