{J.Crew dress, purse and bracelet, Carole Little wedges, Banana Republic necklace, TJ Maxx rings, Anthropologie sunglasses}

I walked past this J.Crew dress several times before trying it on. I'm not afraid of color; it's quite the opposite, really. If you ever catch me dressed in black, it can only mean two things - I either had nothing appropriate to wear for the occasion or I just didn't care much about it. Orange, on the other hand, has never been my favorite color. I don't like it around me, and I certainly didn't think I would like it on me. For some reason it always seemed to me that a bright orange and pale skin combo would be a big no no. Only when the dress was heavily discounted did it finally accompany me to the dressing room. And I'm glad it did. To my surprise tangerine had nothing against my pasty complexion. In fact it complemented it quite well. The simple classic cut of the dress made it even more wearable. Fear no orange no more!
