The Great Pumpkin

Don’t be afraid of the orange! More of une femme’s Fall Color Faves.

J.Crew calls this color “Pumpkin” but it really looks more ochre to me.

I know, I know, it’s Eileen Fisher, but look at that gorgeous color!

I keep hoping this one will go on sale. Lafayette 148.

  1. As a redhead, I’m always nervous about orange. I’ll wear red, purple and occasionally yellow, but I can’t get myself to try on orange and not have a twinge of horror go through me.

    Maybe blue eyed redheads do better in orange because it makes blue eyes standout?

    Maybe in the spring..

  2. So funny that you’ve posted this – I was just looking at the J. Crew catalog and thinking that I really loved that color even though it probably won’t work for me I’m very drawn to it.

    And I love the Eileen Fisher that you show…I’m getting very scared.

  3. Just bought an orange blouse today! I’m embarrassed to say I was actually thinking “Halloween” but thought it would look so good with all the navy items I’ve been buying lately. How serendipitous your post!

  4. I have loads of orange and as it is the colour of my husband’s favorite football team I am always on the look at for something lovely in orange. And, I got the pretty orange pants from Jcrew and I love them!
