My Summer Icon

Colourful Clothes & Memories

I love how clothes and colours affect your mood. Orange. So bright and radiant, bound to lift any melancholic mind. And I love the way that clothes you buy in special places become special in themselves, snapshots of time seared and locked in your happiness memory bank.
