besides being a compound word made of "yell" and "ow," the throw away flavor for most candies, the color of urine and bees (ive still never been stung in twenty-two years by the way, knock on wood! because i run like my life depends on it when i so much as hear buzzing), yellow has been and always will be directly linked to happiness. sunshine, bananas, and baby ducks. whats not to love? and this purse (another lucky fabb grab bag gem) proves the brighter the better. im obsessed with its box shape and locket clasp and cant help but smile when i see it hanging in my closet or better yet on my shoulder. i decided to channel my instinctual love for vintage-esque ensembles and wear my all-black ruffle-topped romper, bowl cap and ankle strapped heels in order to truly showcase the beauty a simple pop of color can bring. if youre like me, continuously finding yourself drawn to neutrals and classic black but want to refrain from looking drab and dreary, enter yellow. you cant go wrong. theres a reason life gives us lemons out of all the other fruits.
