Del said she loves orange and buys orange clothes when she can find them. That got me thinking. You don't often find orange clothing for sale. I think I would love to have an orange shirt. I have one that is pale orange and it is too close to the color of my skin to look like much on me. I was disappointed in it. It is all cotton. Maybe I should dye it a darker orange.
Rayna said orange is an energy color and she believes we crave certain colors at certain times just like we crave certain foods. I certainly believe that. It has been my theory that we crave colors, and then sometimes we gorge on them until they no longer "taste" good and we crave something a bit opposite. I think that is a partial explanation for why color trends seem to go in waves and for several seasons we see certain colors that make us feel good and then suddenly they seem old and tired and something altogether different takes over our craving. It will always be a mystery to me, however, why so many people apparently craved this dusty rose color en masse at one time. Anyway, I seem to be craving orange right now. It doesn't just look warm or happy to me, it feels rich and satisfying.
