I guess I've been feeling this color for a while and it's not just a sudden or fleeting affair. I realized that I have had a few storage boxes for magazines and miscellaneous items in pumpkin orange for several years now. I really love how this color works with grey or white interiors.
Then, I remembered the orange lip color that I envisioned for my first collection (Spring 2011) and after searching high and low, I found the perfect shade at M.A.C. They cleverly called the lipstick, "Morange."

And then there is my silk double knit dress with shell shoulder detail. It wasn't just the buttery softness of the fabric that appealed to me, but also the color.
Last but not least, let us not forget Alexander McQueen -- ever. I adore the simplicity of this piece. It works perfectly without fuss or muss. A color blocking masterpiece.
