Dream Sequins said...

If I were to wear orange,I think I would go for some splashy shoes. Not sure about a dress form. Not daring enough! Or tan enough for that matter! xx

pranksygang said...

i love this color dear!! its so bright and lovely! i love the second picture, its fab!

Jennifer said...

I love that orange trench coat and that cardigan. It's funny, most of my orange items are more accessories (bracelets and earrings) instead of clothes. I should probably fix that some day.

tiltumaria said...

Orange is such a great hue for summertime...vibrant and fun. The Rachel Roy dress is breathtaking...so chic and simple. I love the Hervé Léger gown, as well as the YSL coat. The Vera Wang dress is adorable and fun...I didn't know she could design like that lol! Great use of color is always in style.

Hey sweet Carrie,
I hope all is well.
YESSSSSS - I'm always feeling attracted by a vibrant Orange - unfortunately it doesn't suit me very well due to a very light nordic skin type *lol* looks a little bit creepy on me!
much love, s.
