“And last week I saw Cameron Diaz at Fred Segal, and I talked her out of buying this truly heinous angora sweater. Whoever said orange was the new pink was seriously disturbed”.

Well, no offense to Elle Woods, but to many a fashionista’s surprise, orange is one of this summer’s hottest colors.

Orange and navy are my college’s colors, and I seriously could not find one good thing that looked good with orange. It stands out on its own and is just awkwardly bright. But I guess that’s the point, if it’s supposed to be a  “universally flattering” color.

And speaking of this post’s title, taken of course from the popular Netflix series, the second season starts this Friday, June 6.
