I don’t know if it’s my age or what but orange is suddenly my new shade du jour. Yes, pink and purple are still dear to my heart but orange just feels more… sophisticated. I was drawn to a pair of Pierre Hardy for Hermes platforms in orange the other day (jump for photo) and have been thinking about my orange bags (an ostrich birkin and an LV orange epi leather). I realized how neutral it is; amazingly polished with creams, browns, greens, blues and yes, even the dreaded black (why should Halloween get to have all the fun with orange and black) and told myself I must use it more. This bag is about a foot too large for me but I still love the birkin inspired details on such a casual chic doctor bag. Sure the buckle strap will be difficult to maneuver when you’re power shopping but this is not a bag to be used in such circumstances. It’s best for storing precious items on dreamy lazy trips where someone else is footing the bill so you don’t have to dig for your wallet. Jil Sander Cervo Classic Satchel
