Citrus Dreams

(Dress from Love Vintage, Shoes from the U.S.,)
I am deathly allergic to anything that has got to do with citrus.
And so, what I cannot eat, I shall wear and such was the case on a humid Sunday where I went full on color with a bright as ever orange hued dress
I got from Lissa ages ago from her store, Love Vintage.

I love this dress. It has the classic vintage cut from the '60's and '70's which I adore
and it is even made of chiffon which is beautifully constructed
with sheer bell shaped sleeves. I always planned to wear this dress but when I would, something would come up and I would end up wearing a totally different ensemble.
This day, there were no excuses that came up and so I went out of my pastel-pearls or black-and-studs comfort zone and went full on with the bright shade.

(Beige Purse: Nina Ricci Vintage,Turquoise necklace by Vida Jewelries, Vintage Grecian Belt with turquoise stones from Mom)

I wore turquoise and beige accessories to accent and neutralize the vibrant hue of the dress.
I love coral with turquoise since the contrast of both colors work in such a way that it brings out and highlights both shades in a totally unexpected way. I chose beige to somehow tone down the mega-watt brightness of the citrus hue.

The major flaw of choosing this outfit was that Netherlands was playing against Spain that day for the World Cup Finals and I am so for the Spanish Team, in the totally neutral sense of the term "rooting for".
Being the unsporty, athletic cripple that I am, I seemed to have overlooked the fact that orange was the team color of the Dutch. And ultimately, I chose the wrong day to wear orange. Haha.
