The invitation said to dress in a Crayola color that started with the first letter of my first name. Crayola makes it kind of hard on the “A”s (and people with my complexion)…pale, freckly girls look sickly in Almond and Aztec Gold. It turned out to be too cold to wear my Asparagus dress, so I went with an Atomic Tangerine shirt. It’s my favorite shirt in the world. Gold buttons on the shoulder seams, long torso length, and a jungle print that was designed by someone either a) on acid, or b) with a good sense of humor. How many printed shirts feature leopards with butterfly wings?
I have a lot of pictures from that night, but most of them feature me with Ravishing Red and Caribbean Green…so I decided to recreate the outfit in a collage. The coat and jeans are in tall sizes. The blouse is an average size, but everything I have by Leifsdottir has good length in the torso and width in the shoulders.
