Reader Comment: What Do I Do About Orange?

Orange is the happiest color. – Frank Sinatra
Sing it, Frank!  I
love the joy orange brings me.   But, alas, I
know not all agree with the Chairman of the Board.  I received an email from one reader, “Pam, I
am so grieved to see orange everywhere. 
I cannot wear orange.  It doesn’t
look good on me.  Any suggestions for
what else I can do in an orange-colored fashion world?”
Orange-you glad she asked?? 
There are so many fun accessories with hints of orange, and they make a
nice, subtle way to pop an outfit.  When
I went to my closet to see what accessories I owned with orange accents, I was
pleasantly surprised to see so many.  My
personal accessory line is really dated, but I have seen new options in just
about every store I have visited.  You do
not have to be over the top…just add a few touches or go with orange’s softer
sister, coral.
Another is the Madonna-
with orange velvet leggings:  She said, 
“I live for meeting with men in suits. I love them because I know they
had a really boring week and I walk in there with my orange velvet leggings and
drop popcorn in my cleavage and then fish it out and eat it. I like that. I
know I’m entertaining them, and I know that they know.”    Well, there might be a better way to draw
attention to your style than going that far.  🙂

 Have a fabulous Thursday everyone!!

Your “living-like-you-feel-40” tip of the day:  You will enjoy life more if you give any person who insults you a blessing in return and not an insult.  Insult for insult just robs you of joy!  


  1. I love the color orange. I don't have as many pieces in my wardrobe as I would like but I will work on that. I am currently building a house and I have picked out the perfect tiles for my kitchen backsplash in orange!

  2. I bought my daughter an adorable orange top with white polka dots that was on clearance rack at Old Navy. I knew she looks great in orange, while I really don't! I never thought about just using it as an accent piece…great idea!

    Pam, thanks so much for often stopping by and commenting on my blog. It's always an encouragement!

  3. How about if we call it "coral" — somehow that seems easier to live with I think.

    Tomorrow I plan on doing my "coral" undercover shoot in Paris. (So funny we're on the same wave length.)

    I'll be looking forward to your turquoise post. . .


  4. I love orange, coral, peach. I have auburn colouring so it works but there are so many accessories. Orange works well with navy or browns. With black, it could look like Halloween.

  5. What a great collection of orange! I am the same way with turquoise!
