Hello Yellow

Actually it's more like goodbye yellow as I just dyed my golden locks a dark auburn/ brown. So far, the only downside to my new dye job is that I can't wear yellow as easily as I used to. Lucky for me, a yellow skirt we had for sale on Etsy didn't sell and the little number is now mine for the keeping (I was secretly hoping it wouldn't sell as I wanted it for summer). Tip: if you love a colour but it's not flattering on you, wear it away from your face. Skirts, shoes or even your toenail polish are great ways to wear colours that aren't your best.

Yellow can be a hard colour to wear, but there is a flattering shade for almost everyone, whether it be marigold, mango or mustard.

Here's one of my favourite outfits from a movie. It's Doris Day in The Glass Bottom Boat. The movie isn't great, but this outfit is amazing. If anyone has access to an abundance of yellow suede and is a milliner, seamstress and cobbler, please call me. I would pay BIG bucks for a replica of this outfit.

Here are some lovely yellow things in the shop...

Mustard High-waisted Shorts

Lemon Chiffon Floor-length Goddess Gown

Jonquil Striped Blouse

Buttercup Shirtdress


  1. yellow is one of my faaaavorite colors! i hope you continue to rock it despite your newly hued hair - which you should post pics of, btw!
