What better way to ring in the new year than with a dress so neon that it is sure to get you over that hangover? I mean, it is veritably the colour of Tang circa 1962!

Of course, the outfit post will follow, but I couldn't resist showing you a little preview...

PS: Here, as on Cherie's website, the oufit looks red/pink. But in real life, it is definitely orange. Fortunately, I'm one of the 8 people in the world who actually thinks orange flatters her and who wears it, in all hues, rather regularly. Let's just say I'm going to get a lot of comments on this one :-)


  1. I love orange and this is a glorious colour. I think it is a great buy and saw it on her site. I love so many of her beautiful dresses.
    Happy New Year and can't wait for your post with dress on!

  2. It looks perfect so far! And I love the font on the Shrimpton packaging . . .

  3. I am a big fan of orange, too! I used to have a lot more of it in my wardrobe, but weight fluctuations and inevitable wear and tear have diminished its presence. :(

    I cant wait to see your new dress in an outfit post!

  4. Oh yes, Orange is a great colour!!!
    Happy New Year K!!!


  5. I was just wearing neon orange myself the other day -- I approve!

  6. Well, you know how I feel about orange! I also like orange on myself and have my share of orange pieces. This is going to look fab on you! Thanks so much for your support and friendship the past year. You rock. Happy new year to you and your family! xoxo, Ally

  7. Kate: Thank you. BTW, I would unreservedly encourage you to buy something there - after the ban! - with your saved up loot. The service and quality is excellent. And the pieces, as we know, are gorgeous and unique.

    Miss C: I love that packaging too.

    Dora (:-)): I think it's time to restock with the orange. I can tell it would look fab on you. Any woman who can wear purple can wear orange!

    Thanks Seeker.

    Wendy: Have we seen this neon orange dress on the blog??

    Ally: Ha! I wondered whether you wore orange, given your extreme love of it. Have a wonderful eastern seaboard new year. Can't wait to see the new grey kitchen.
