Hello Yellow

Yellow has been cited as an “It” color for spring 2012.  Hello yellow!

Imagine then how excited I was when I spotted the dress below while shopping Banana Republic’s after Christmas sale.  Isn’t it the perfect shade of yellow?  The dress, previously priced at $130, was marked down to $59.97.  And, all sale items are an additional 30% off, making the final price $41.97.

I debated the purchase for a minute, though, because I couldn’t envision an immediate need for the dress.  You see, its material and texture make it perfectly suited for a spring wedding or some special affair like that.

I eventually decided to purchase it anyway because I saw a potential opportunity to dress it down and make it more wearable.

Dress—Banana Republic
Sweater—Old Navy (Old Navy Crew-neck pullover in dalmatian)
Belt—The Limited
Shoes—Franco Sarto via Marshalls
Earrings—Kendra Scott ‘Danielle’ (Danielles at Nordstrom)

    Perfect match. I agree … yellow ( especially mustard) is a must-have colour this season.
