All things orange!

January 26, 2012
One of the advantages or should I say benefit of style-blogging has been that, I seem to have finally begun liking loving ALL colors. When I as younger my favorite color was black. Which is weird because I thought all artists loved colors (Apparently not me!) Need a new bag? Buy a black one! New watch? Black! Shoes for birthday? Black! New jeans this winter? Black!Yeah. You get the picture?

Now I find myself drawn to colors. All shades, all hues. And right now I am obsessed with…

…….all things orange! (Should I say tangerine to sound all sophisticated? Ahhh what the hell! Orange it is!)

p.s – Hello! To all the new readers/followers! Will catch up with all your blogs this weekend!
Pinky Promise.

    Even I have been fond of black and white all the time but you made orange look beautiful too:)

    Orange was too bright for me a few years back but now,I love orange or tangerine (that sounds sweeter to me somehow :P)I loved that hat!!

    One of the rented houses I used to live in had one wall painted orange in every room. And that's the main reason I took up the house. I used to, and still do, call the house “Orange Wall”. Love the colour.

    I have always been the same with navy blue – everything I bought was navy blue!

    But now (like you) I've gone all crazy for orange as well! The hat and skirt in your pictures are beautiful!

    I was pretty much the same when I was younger (not that long ago actually) – black or grey usually. But these days I do like a bit of orange now and then – it is an awesome colour! I have yet to buy a piece of clothing/bag/shoes with orange on it though.

    I used to be just like you. Here in NY, we tend to wear darker colors and for a while everything in my wardrobe was black. One day, I was like that got to stop. Now, I am in love with bold prints and colors.

  • Reply Sam January 26, 2012 at 4:16 pm

    I was also not an 'orange' fan but I'm getting into coral and subtler shades of it. I love the second picture, thats how I would wear it, with a bright accessory

  • Reply Jack January 26, 2012 at 4:20 pm


    Caught up with all pending posts. I think I need to visit frequently not to let so much of backlog pile up. Nice updates of 2011. May 2012 be just the way you want it to be. What date in June, please do tell so I can wish you in time. I too would love to have one of your paintings, landscape or whatever you choose. Nice post by your sister. Please convey my love to her son. I am sure he will grow to be a naughty one, MASI will ensure that, isn't it?

    Take care
