Yellow on My Mind

When I biked home today from work, it was still sunny out . . . I am still in awe that we are finally heading full speed toward Spring and Summer - even if it is still a bit, um, nippy.

I remembered seeing these photos a few weeks ago from French illustrator/photographer Garance Doré of bright chartreuse-y yellow being incorporated with warmer weather pieces. What a great way to say, "Hello Spring, I can see you just around the corner, but brrrrr . . ."

(btw, this is Susie Bubble - a fashion force to be reckoned with. I could never be so cool. Even though I try.)

I really like the neon shade of the yellow in these outfits. It is so hard to find. I have a bright yellow vintage suit (although the skirt doesn't fit at all) that comes close (but still not neon enough):

So I went searching online for some vintage/secondhand chartreuse yellow inspiration:

Manolo Blahnik Shoes (secondhand) from Rice and Beans Vintage

The next two items are from my friend Em's blog, DC Goodwill Fashion Blog, and are being sold to benefit Goodwill of Greater Washington in their Ebay store . You should totally bid on one of them.
