The Color Post (Tangerine)

Warning: Picture-heavy post. ;)

Right before the fashion houses sent their models out strutting on the catwalk wearing orange last year for Sping 2011, unconsciously I was already collecting this color for our new flat since early summer of last year. Like these ones:

- the stripey orange curtains in the kitchen


- this orange chair which took us 2 1/2 hours to assemble. Our first DYI house project. Thankfully the second chair took us 30 mins.hahaha!


- this orange and yellow tablecloth  bought from a Chinese store. Ngeeh!


-the orange cushion. Great pairing with lime green too. ;)


- our comforter with orange swirls among the other swirls


 and this magenta and orange bedside lamp. I like how  this photo came out. So 70s, no? ;) No, this wasn´t photoshopped! At night I´m kinda hesitant to light this lamp because it gives this reddish glow which reminds me of some place out there. Sssshhhh! ;)


Looking at my old accessories, I found two:

- a beaded orange necklace which was like, 3 years old!


and my orange baguette ring which has the same age as my beaded necklace. All from Sfera.


Aha, it still fits nicely on my ring finger! :)


and yes, the room where I usually shoot my outfits has an orange fluorescent lamp. ;)


Okay so finally here´s the outfit post:

floral top- thrifted last December

very old jeans- Mango

necklace- Promod ( summer sales 2009)

My mother who´s stylish in her own way never called this color orange since I was a wee child. She always calls it ¨tangerine¨ and I like it. Tangerine´s a lot classier to say and hear than orange, noh? ;)

So, have you had a tangerine trip lately? ;)

Enjoy your weekend! :)

xoxo,

Che

The colour looks great against your skin tone. And funny how you were riding the orange/tangerine trend way before. I love it when that happens.
