Orange You Glad You Wore Orange?

Hello, my little Pr0n Stars!  Don’t think I haven’t missed you.  Hopefully I’m back, as is the pr0n; we’ll see what form it takes.

Today I want to talk about broadening your color horizons.  A few years ago if you’d looked in my closet, you’d see all shades of blue, pink and purple.  I knew what looked good on me, but there were so many other colors missing!  Since then, I’ve been adding poor, neglected orange, green and yellow.  They may seem like tricky colors, but before we’re done you’ll all be running out to taste the rainbow.

Let me show you some of my recent purchases, and lusts (it wouldn’t be pr0n without lust).  It wouldn’t be Spring without a pair of cute little go-with-everything flats, but if you’re like me with very high arches (VERY), that may seem like an impossible task. Born Peony in Orange

UNTIL I found Peony, by Börn. Börn shoes are like the Birkenstock of shoes, with high quality that fit the contours of your feet.   Look at the adorable Peony flower that will tell everyone that you’re not afraid of color.

I picked these up in orange; other colors such as green, yellow, blue, black and pink are a bit harder to find. But what an easy way to add a pop of go-with-everything color to your wardrobe!

Kate Spade Tutti Frutti Maryanne

Speaking of easy pops of color – try a brightly colored handbag for spring!  PUT THE BLACK HANDBAG DOWN.  Din said so.  (My peeps call me Din.  That’s just how we roll.)

I’m always lusting after a Kate Spade (or 5) and throw in patent leather and I’m a puddle on the floor.  This Tutti Frutti Maryanne is on sale (ON SALE) for $228, including free shipping at Kate Spade.com.

You didn’t hear it from me, but there’s usually a sale on sale this time of year. Put yourself on a website’s mailing list to be the first to know about sales, get coupons, etc.

My new go-to website for cute clothes is Tobi.com.  They’ve got a great selection, and especially their sale stuff is super reasonably priced.  They ship usually same or next day, so if you live on the West Coast, you’ll get your stuff in a snap!  Everyone knows getting the stuff is part of the fun when you order online.

You know the feeling you get slipping into your favorite t-shirt? That’s the feeling you get putting on clothing by Velvet by Graham & Spencer – one of my new favorite brands for tops, sweaters and dresses. Their stuff is just to-die-for soft, and if you’re a bit on the smaller busted side, you’ll thank me in the heat of summer when you pull on their Lisbet Dress in Medium for $29! Scurry – this little melon darling won’t last long.

But not all of us can pull off such a dress, and most of us have lives wherein we’re in air-conditioning about 40 hours a week. For you, my little Pr0n Workers, I point you to your nearest Anthropologie for the Reed Shirtdress.

It’s sold out online in orange , but if you like it, hopefully you can find it in one of their brick and mortar stores once another pr0n star returns it (the horror!) or find it in a different color. It’s only $59.95 down from $118…

Which is a perfect segue (I used to be able to spell that word) to pimp one of my new favorite blogs: Effortless Anthropologie.

It’s author, Roxie, knows this store inside and out – to an extent that’s almost a little scary. :) But lucky for us she shares her knowledge with review posts, complete with pictures, and sale posts every week. If you’re not reading Roxie, you’re going to miss what you want.

Orange is so wearable my little Pr0n Stars: pale blonds, dark brunettes, and even redheads can wear this color in the right shade.  When you do wear it, you will get so many complements!  Most of them from non-stars who didn’t think they could wear orange.

I hope you enjoyed reading this post as much as I enjoyed writing it, and hopefully I’ll have another one later in the week!  Comments are love.  :)

Until next time, it was good for me; tell me, was it good for you?
