Gimme Color

I gravitate towards black.  I might even go as far as calling it my "favorite color".  But this time of year, when I've seen way too much dreary gray, I want nothing more than rainbows of color.  And when it comes to color inspiration, I like to think of  fashion in countries that seem to embrace all things vibrant - like Morocco, India, Spain, and Mexico.  I'm thinking long maxi skirts, flowing tunics, dangly,bejeweled earrings and patterned scarves scarves.  I know the whole Morrocan/Marrakech theme was huge back in '09, but could we please bring it back?  Below are some clothes and accessories techni-color dreams are made of... Can't you just imagine wearing these amazing pieces in the most exotic of locales with a glowing tan? 

Pink Dress: Mara Hoffman, Embroidered Silk Story Kaftan $310
Turquoise Scarf: Crumpet Silk and Cashmere Blend Scarf $325
Lime Purse: Jimmy Choo Neon Purse $410
Green Belt: Miu Miu Slim Belt $165
Blue Jumpsuit: Roberto Cavalli Printed Silk-Chiffon Jumpsuit $2,795
Yellow Ballet Flats: Miu Miu Fluorescent Flats, $349
