tantalized yet?

Tantalized, titillated, taken; yes I too am madly seduced by tangerine’s fierce hues as Pantone has announced ‘Tango Tangerine” as the Color of 2012. I personally was one to believe that orange was confined strictly to prison jumpsuits, sports teams, and beach towels…but after this season’s runways were unveiled I started to clear a space in my heart for the many shades of orange.  It was impossible to keep my heart closed to such vibrant and truly powerful hues when they were gracefully swaying down the catwalk as my jaw dropped ever so slightly with each new design. I was inspired – inspired to squeeze fresh orange juice, to bask in the warmth of sunlight, to run through fields of Californian poppies…. to let orange take up a permanent residence in my heart. I have seen the light – or rather the lighter side of orange. Deep hues of scarlet have never been a sore spot, but alas have never found their way into my closet. Like I said, I’ve been blinded of the potential this vibrant color has held…that is until now! Enjoy my favorite pieces of tangerine inspirations!
