Orange ya glad


























Today was a beautiful summers day. I wore an amazing but VERY SHORT 60s smock dress. It has beautiful round pockets with little yellow bows on the front. It has little daisies all over it - you can kind of see in the above photo. Anyway I ventured into the city and wandered around a bit. (You can tell I'm on holidays this is sounding SO BORING) I'm obsessed with freshly squeezed juice at the moment since we started making them at the cafe' I work at - and there's this little place in Degraves Street in the city that makes juices with whatever you want in it. I always get carrot, apple and orange.

So, I had my orange coloured juice and an orange bag with a CD in it (I bought an amazing 3 disc Doo Wop CD) and I was like orange girl. When I was younger there was this lady from where we lived who always dressed only in purple and she had purple hair and everything. Purple lady. I didn't like her very much really. Anyway as I was orange girl today I was thinking about my friend Lucina from Uni who has a blog where she posts pictures of people who where like the one colour. It's really beautiful and lots of people from around VCA (The art school I go to) are featured on it. http://monochromos.blogspot.com/ It's a good one!

I have taken the liberty to make an 'Orange' playlist. Orange is a 24 degree day and drinking out of a straw making that slurping noise when you're trying to get the last drop of moisture out of the bottom of your polystyrene cup. Download it here http://www.mediafire.com/?4o89t848suga2

  1. That picture of you is a dream! Also I love the monochromos blog, a few years back my great aunt passed on and I inherited about 10 garbage bags of vintage clothing... all in shades of blue. I had a solid blue wardrobe for longer than i'd care to admit but finally had to start incorporating some other colours... its still the majority though! Its funny because it was never a colour I was particularly drawn too yet by some twist of fate we've ended up together.

  2. That's a fantastic story. Sometimes people are naturally drawn to a colour - with me it's red. Sounds like your Great Aunt was drawn to blue and perhaps you too now because of the sentiment associated with it or something. I love blue because it seems like such an artificial colour but it's actually the colour that makes up most of the natural world - the sky and ocean. beautiful!
