I’ve been eyeing the lovely shade of mustard yellow that’s so popular for fall. It’s such a warm, rich color that is just so appealing. But I can’t wear yellow. Or rather I don’t – not “can’t.” If you put me in something yellow or yellow toned, not only does it wash me out, but I look like I have some severe stage of jaundice. I think it’s the combination of my very fair skin and the olive undertones that run throughout it. So when Liz contacted me with the opportunity to select and try out some of her delightful handmade accessories I yipped with glee when I saw that the Mustard & Cobalt Pinwheel Bobby Pin set had just the yellow I’ve been craving. And to top it all off I had just nabbed this belt for $3, so putting to two together just seemed to make sense.
These are beautifully made and I adore the whimsy of pinwheels in my hair. It makes me feel like I’m going to have a soft breeze caressing my hair. Her shop has some really pretty things, like these earrings and this lovely pin/ brooch. I think it would look stunning as a decorative piece in a fun messy updo. Personally, I’m pleased as punch that I can satisfy my yellow craving while avoiding looking like an extra on AMC’s “The Walking Dead.”
