:Ode to Orange:

After its time under the fashion spotlight last year, orange has taken a step in another direction, namely toward the automobile world and the world of the home appliances and additional decorative accoutrements.

Even though orange only made a sneak peek on the Spring 2013 runways, it is pretty hard to forget. Namely, for its recurring role in the 5th season of the critically acclaimed Mad Men (which also stars a boyfriend of mine, Jon Hamm). Obviously, orange was a very popular color in the Mad Men era, which only boosts its popularity on all consumer avenues today.

Back to 2013. While walking during a Prius commercial shoot on Friday, my mother and I noticed this car from the 2014 collection.

Then, she told me that orange was, in fact, the most popular color for telephones right now (as in this year). She sells retro telephones on Fab.com every few months from her own personal store, the American Telephone Store. Pretty boss.
