    Things I Love: The Color Orange

    Congrats to Dominique, Comment #8 chosen by Random.org as the winner of the Free consultation. She is a faithful reader and comments often, yet this is her first time to win. If you haven’t been a winner yet, keep trying. Your day is coming.

    Who would have ever thought it? Five years ago I NEVER would have worn the color ORANGE. When I was told during color analysis training a few years ago that orange was a good color for me, I was skeptical. I thought it was crazy. Now I actually like orange–a LOT!

    In case you haven’t noticed, orange is everywhere! Some shades are really more coral which I preferred when I first started branching out to orange. Other shades are a little more pink. They called that Honeysuckle this spring. It’s a good way to transition if orange just seems too overpowering.

    Another way to add orange is with accessories. If you like the color, but it doesn’t work with your skin tone, carry an orange purse or try some orange shoes. Both will actually go with much more than you think and give that pop of color. I’ve admired many orange handbags this season.

    I thought it would be fun to show lots of orange from a number of sources.

    First from Accentuate: (located at 500 NE 4th Ave in Camas, WA)

    Note in the photos above that we just have a hint of orange in the scarf and the dress has a few other colors. This can be a great way to try orange in small doses.
