I‘ve been editing this “Yellow” post for a little while now, but seeing as the temperature here in Austin, Texas dropped by about 700 degrees yesterday, it seemed like a good time to celebrate the warmth of yellow! As much as I’ve adored hanging with my boys at SXSW, listening to rap or punk music with icicles forming on my nose is not my dream scenario. Looking forward to getting back to Santa Barbara tomorrow and seeing if any roses have popped yet.
But back to YELLOW, which seems to be a popular trend for Spring/Summer 2010, despite, in my opinion, not being an easy colour to wear. Try as I might I can’t even remember ever buying a piece of yellow clothing.
I do have one mustard coloured coat, which my mother says “looks terrible” on me. I am fair and have the type of complexion where the term “High Colour” goes to die. I pray for a mild case of Rosacea. In her defense, she’s really the mother that every girl dreams of shopping with. When I was young and vacillating over whether to take the plunge on something she’d always say “BUY IT-you won’t have that figure forever!” Now she says “BUY IT-you’re only middle-aged once”
In any case, I think I’ll be adding a dash of jaune to my wardrobe this spring with perhaps a woven bag or a shoe, maybe a scarf, although certainly not anywhere close to my face. Bottega Veneta looks like the place to find the best yellow so far, but I’m open to suggestions…

The teeniest tiniest touch of yellow eye-shadow added to your other shadow colours will really make any green or blue in your eyes pop. But be careful- I said just a tiny bit…
that’s too much!

A very old photo from my scrapbooks so unfortunately I don’t have a credit- I can’t look at this without just wanting to jump right in- It never gets old.
