I am all about yellow. I remember growing up that when my eldest sister said her favourite colour was yellow and I thought ‘Yellow?! No one likes yellow that much.’ Back then it was the colour of smiley face stickers, highlighter pens, and ice lollies. As I got older, particularly in the last few years, I’ve grown to love the colour in a new way. Now it’s sunshine and daffodils, pineapple and baby chicks. It’s bright but also soft, happy as well as sweet.
Despite all the ways I’ve grown to love yellow, I’ve still found it to be an under-appreciated colour on the whole. Every time I wear it, though, I find it seems to open another person’s eyes to the joys and the potential in the colour that they hadn’t considered before, and that makes me even happier still to wear it and champion it all the more. And in the yellow Hostess dress by Pretty Retro, it’s very easy to help people see just what a beautiful offering of a colour that yellow is.
