Orange is the New Black

Are you a fan of "Orange is the New Black?" I have to admit that I've yet to see a single episode of the wildly popular series, now in its third season. But, It's definitely on my list for potential binge-watching some snowed in Winter weekend. 

In contrast to the apparent longevity of the TV show, each new season in the fashion realm brings a different iteration of "X is the new black." I've even heard the refrain "black is the new black" on more than one occasion.

If you know me or follow Red's Shoe Diaries, however, you probably know that orange has always been my new black! My favorite shades skew toward the deeper rusts and burnt oranges, or "Jody Orange" as so many of my friends refer to the color. But, with the exception of the neon, day-glo varieties, I'm also a fan of the brighter hues. Of course, that doesn't mean I have any desire to don a prison uniform - they're just too hard to accessorize!
Fashion is what you buy; Style is what you do with it!
