I couldn't choose a favourite colour.
I don't think there is any colour which doesn't feature somewhere in my wardobe (though I have tried to eliminate beige.)
I do find that I can be drawn to the same colour over and over again for a while, as though my colour wheel gets stuck.
I seem to be in my orange period at the moment.
I know some people have all sorts of rules/guidelines about pattern mixing. I'm not especially analytical about it, I just felt that the bits of orange in the frock would "go" with the orange flowers on the cardigan. So I wore them together. That's all.
This 1970s crimplene maxi dress was an Ebay purchase for £4.99. It was listed as a UK size 10 (it's not, or it wouldn't fit me) and described as twee. What an odd word to pick for this big bold splashy colourful print! Twee is an overdose of bunting, cupcakes and kittens, not a 1970s crazy chrysanthamum print.
And the cardigan is from a charity shop (£3.25) as are all the bangles.
I received a parcel of delight from the zombified perky-boobed artist's muse who is Sarah Misfit this week. She's obviously feeling the orange love too!
She sent me a wildly colourful 1970s frock, a wooden bracelet (already dubbed the pencil bracelet and pinched by Littlest), a fuck-off daisy brooch, fabulous sunnies, and a helpful tome on Understanding the female orgasm.
Published in 1973, the blurb says;
Seymour Fisherrecords the results of his own attempts to discover, with the help of some 300 married women, what things help or hinder a woman to attain orgasm.
I'm sure those married women (he wasn't interested in the likes of us unmarried types then) were happy to help, in the name of science and discovery. Do you think Seymour had sex with all of them? Oh Seymour...
Thank you Sarah. You are an idiotic darling.
Oh and if anyone wants to read the book after me, let me know, and I'll pass it right along. The Sisterhood of the Travelling Orgasm, anyone?
Lets get back to orange, for goodness' sake.
Look at all the orange gorgeousness in my wardrobe. I think it might be impossible to feel grumpy when you wear orange.
You might even have better orgasms. I wonder if Seymour knows?
Nope, not working yet...
Now you're talking!
Hope you are having plenty of orange orgasm action this week!
