Not So Mellow Yellow! 

Cupcakes, apparently the color trend and current darling of retail is electric yellow!    I happened to be in my local mall, camera in hand, and then off to Princeton for a shopping spree this past weekend, only to find electric greenish yellow, everywhere!  

Of course, I was DEEE-lighted because it’s one of the colors that I debut in my new OAKDALE line at Quilt Market in May.   Judging from what I see in shop windows, I’m right on the money! 




OK, look at the color and never mind that this dress looks like something ripped out of the lid of a coffin!  









Even the home dec palette is coming up YELLOW!  Here’s peeking in the door of Pottery Barn! 


So, chicklets, YELLOW it is.  And keeping with the spirit, here’s a pic of moi wearing yellow.  

Now where did I  put that damn calorie counter?  xoxom

    Oh dear god…I look like Minnie Pearl (old and washed out) when I wear yellow. I can see it’s going to be all black, all the time this summer…

    Yay for yellow! I love yellow. Have a closet full of it, I’ll finally be in style

    If I wore those yellow panties, there would be a stampede and lots of therapy.

    Once again, you made me laugh ou loud at the end of a very stressful day. The coffin lining dress was too much. Thanks for the “comedy therapy”, all I could think of on my own to feel better was a couple of Cosmos.

    Glad somebody else mentioned those yellow panties… wouldn’t that have made a cute peekaboo in your ripped jeans?!

    Yellow isn’t my favorite color…the only reason my purse is yellow is so I can FIND IT! But, as a British tattoo artist told me once, nothing is complete without a little bit of yellow added!

    OMG! That yellow dress looks like it needs a whole can of Cling Free!

    Bad Design, really BAD DESIGN.

    Oh boy! LOVE that color, and I’m one of the few who can wear it without looking barfy (or is it that I look that way anyhow??? who cares? I love yellow. And snot green.) At the Hampton show, I bought one of Reid Barnhart’s blanket vests in the most AMAZING shade of yellow…can’t wait to go find something I can wear it with besides the pea greens and deep rose reds in my winter “wardrobe” (and I use that term loosely, indeed).

    Yellow is the new LiveSTRONG color. Pantone decided it was the new It color. I dig it.
