There are a few colors that I just cannot wear. I wish that I could but they just make me look sallow and jaundiced and, well, horrendous.Orange is one but another is a bright golden yellow, like the Pantone color of 2009 - Mimosa.
I had not thought about this for a while but I was watching Dangerous Liaisons today and I was reminded about how I would kill to be able to wear the classic combination of rich yellow and deep black, as Glenn does in this scene.
I also loved Gwyneth Paltrow's Parisan outfit in View from the Top.
But a movie that really kicked off the love for this color combo was a very bad made for TV movie, Tears on the Rain, featuring a very young Sharon Stone.
I love the dress, the embellished gloves and you have to love the matching hair ribbon.
Of course all three of these ladies are blonds and, since I would also look horrible as a blonde, it isn't going to happen.
But if you can rock this color, I will try and be happy for you and not jealous.
I love this coat which, surprisingly, is from Victoria's Secret and pretty inexpensive at $129
I could probably get away with wearing these Oh Deer! Toffee "taxi" shoes. They are sold out now but I think that you can find them around.
Or I can get a pair of yellow gloves like Ms WendyB and wear them with a black coat. and boots.
If you can wear this color, share how or what you wear.
Hopefully I have better luck with 2010's color!
