Let's talk about orange shoes!
Orange is a very very sexy color. I would even argue that it is sexier than red because not everyone can pull it off and still look sexy - much less likely than red anyways (then again, we have to remember, not everyone can be sexy no matter what color they wear, cute or pretty maybe, not sexy). So for those lucky few who can pull it off, it is just that much more awesome. Orange is very picky about skin tone and color, and if you don't have the kind of skin color to sport orange, it's a fashion disaster waiting to happen, but If you have an olive or bronze skintone, try orange next time!
I have to be honest here, I was never a big fan of the color orange. Something about it, I can't put my finger on it, but something about orange turns me away. Today, I saw a woman wearing a pair of orange heels with an ordinary black outfit, and the whole look was so wonderful that it got me thinking about ORANGE.
Orange shoes are actually wonderful. They brighten up the whole outfit, and add a little sassiness to the personality. When I think orange, I think sassiness, assertiveness, maybe even a little bitchiness mixed in there, somewhere. So it is actually quite perfect to wear with a black suit in a corporate environment. I probably won't buy orange clothes anytime soon, but I definite will pay attention to orange shoes from now on.
Watch out, the stomping just got spicier!
