I always liked orange, but I never dared to buy anything orange because the color just didn’t go well with me. Caps, shirts, hair accessories, socks, shoes…You name it, I probably tried them in orange. It was one of those colors I just admired and envied but never could do anything with. I always thought that was the color, the color that just wouldn’t go with me. That was until I found the design that would go with me, even in orange.
My first orange purchase was from Gap store. Last winter, I went there with my friend who wanted to exchange something. Heaps of neon colors were going on in the store at that time, so naturally, as neon color lover as I am, I was intrigued to look around and found a sweater in the sale rack.
I came home and tried it at home, thinking that I’d probably return it anyway. I looked at myself in the mirror and thought the neckline was a little too wide and deep. then I remembered our orange cube necklace which was my first cube necklace I created. I put them together on me, and viola! I literally wore that combination a dozen times after that. Now orange is one of my favorite colors I can actually wear!
How about you? Is there a color you are afraid of to wear? How did you get over the problem? Please share with us in the comment.
So, next challenge for me? Here I go, purple!
