I don't know about you, but there are several months of the year- November, March, and this year surprisingly August (we had a lot of rain), when the sky is grey, and everything around me seems grey. (I live in NYC, there's a lot of black and grey all year round). I find myself longing for color, but not just 'color', specifically citrus and sunshine colors. It's odd because they aren't colors I tend to wear. In fact, few people seem to wear bright yellow, or bright orange, and I understand that these colors sell the least in clothing, which doesn't surprise me. I have often seen some bright yellow dress on a rack or a celebrity and thought, "who can wear that?!" However, this time of year when we're surrounded by pumpkins, and squashes, and bright leaves, not to mention the autumn sun in a bright blue sky, wouldn't it be nice to wear some of that brightness? Maybe sometimes we get too regimented into what we consider 'our colors.' Maybe there should be no such thing a who 'can' or 'can't' wear a certain shade. I'm thinking of making something bright yellow, or citrus orange, to have on hand for those days when there's nothing but grey, to at least try to create a little sunshine! At least it will make me smile on some grey January day!
