Clock work orange...

Thursday, September 01, 2011

A lot of red heads tend to shy away from orange..thinking it clashes or maybe even matches the tone of their hair..as you know Im not a natural redhead or the average one at that..
I love orange! Orange eye shadow, lipstick and clothes, although this is the first time Ive worn a orange as a block colour in a whole outfit before..

I must say I love this dress..the colour really pops and the heavy jersey is really flattering and will be great as the weather cools down in Autumn... I also love the unusual elbow length sleeves. I got the dress in a medium as Im not a body con/skin tight clothing girl and it was a little bit big around the waist, not wanting to take way from the simpleness of the dress with the oversized buttons I nipped in the waist with a bit of black ribbon..

  2. I love this outfit Vicki!

    I'm a natural blonde and I tend to shy away from yellow, although I wore it a lot when I was younger, and I think I need to be brave and try and embrace it soon as there's a lot of it around right now [: The majority of my wardrobe is blue, green, purple and pink [:

  9. I don't think I shy away from any colour in particular... Yellow tends to look rotten on me (ironic, since it's my favourite colour) but I ALWAYS try it first =] I don't know whether it's the colour or the fact that I often find it hard to find nice things in yellow, but I have very little clothes in that colour.

    That dress is a fab colour on you and the ribbon was a great idea =]

  15. I didn't actually know you weren't a natural red head and I've been reading your blog for months now! I love this dress on you..it's very pretty. I tend to shy away from brown big time...it just seems to sap every ounce of life out of my face when I wear it which is clearly not a look I wanna go for :)

  23. Yay for polka dot tights!

    I love red hair with red or orange - I don't really think colour clashes really exist - we're just trained to see them as such. :)

  29. I love those tights, so fun!
    I can only wear yellow when I've got a summer tan going, or else it completely washes me out. Lately I've been loving magenta, in small doses. :)

  30. For the past several years I suddenly found myself shying away from any bright colors...mostly because my line of work (wedding photography) meant I was needing a lot of dark clothes. :p So now I'm trying to bring all brightness back into my wardrobe and...it's actually been kinda hard. BUT your outfit makes me want to run out and by lots and lots of red! :)

  33. I usually shy away from orange, to be honest, but I've recently bought heaps of orange skirts & dresses so I dunno? Maybe I am going crazy.

    I would like to take this opportunity to say that I love absolutely everything you wear and how you put it all together. It's so quirky/fun/happy/weeee. Amazing work :)

  38. personally im paranoid about colours like orange and yellow, they wash me out in a bad way. orange looks amazing on you and you're truly the only person ive seen (above the age of 5) that looks great in pigtails (main picture)
    p.s love the name of this post

  39. So bright! The buttons are very awesome.

    Personally, I do not do orange or yellow of any description. This is because I am a pale blonde and they therefore make me look jaundiced. Ditto tomato reds.

  46. Oh my god! I've just found your blog and think your whole orange outfit is fabulous! Your hair is to die for (or is it to dye for for all us non redheads out there who would want hair like yours?)

    The tights look so lovely with the dress. Bearing in mind I am old but still love funky clothes!
