Orange Crush

Collage Vintage is one of my favorite fashion blogs by far and I am crazy for this study on orange.  Orange is my favorite color – it always makes me melt and I feel like it’s universally flattering to the complexion.  I bought this same skirt from Zara this Fall and have been enjoying wearing it with tucked in blouses and heels.

But this blew me away.  Deep, dark green and orange.  Wow.  And, from my posts, you know I am already coo-coo crazy for the Chanel slingbacks (still trying to figure out how to get my hands on a pair) and the Chanel quilted bag is a classic.  But the combo of the mid-heel and the midi-skirt is a daring ensemble that I feel may only be available to the very slight of stature.  I tried on my skirt like this the other night with my black suede Gucci fringe loafers and studied it for a bit in the mirror before taking it off.  It just wasn’t right – the shoe, too heavy – not enough lift.  It seems to me, though, that the Chanel slingback may provide the balance I was looking for and just another in a long list of reasons I need this shoe.

If you aren’t following Collage Vintage, do so here.

Below, I hooked you up with a super sweet scroll of pretty pins all in my orange crush.  Enjoy!

Happy Weekend!
