Let The Sun Shine Down

I love the colour yellow, it's an instantaneous mood enhancer and has the emotional effect of a soft grass under bare feet and a spoonful of lemon gelato. To summarise, yellow is my version of heaven of earth. It makes me think of Sunday's, late afternoons, the sound of water lapping against the shoreline and the otherworldly smell of jasmine as the day draws to a close. It makes me so happy my breath catches in my throat and I hiccup. What I love about colour is all the little attachments it comes with.
Obviously I've been a little ball of sunshine with all the yellow that's popping up during New York Fashion Week (although FurFur is from Japan Fashion Week). The buttery, pale yellows are so prim and proper and the rich, mustardy yellows are so strong, I want to dye all my clothes yellow. Don't worry, I won't go that far but you can't deny it would solidify my stance on the colour!

Kirsten Dunst for Boy by Band Of Outsiders → Little Miss Dunst is the model for Boy by Band Of Outsiders this season (they used Michelle Williams last season). Great inspiration for anybody trying to simplify, the collection is quite mix & match and highly blazer orientated.

I love yellow too! my mum and I call that particular shade of yellow on the far left of that picture "New York Yellow" - it seams that in all of our photos of our trip to new york, there is a taxi, a traffic light, a road sign, SOMETHING in that shade of yellow. I got a skirt that colour for my birthday

Ohhh Ali, I'm jealous! Your skirt sounds perfect, and I love the "New York Yellow", that's such a fitting name for it.
