The reason primarily for doing so was the Colour In Dare and nothing is much brighter than orange.
My dad hates the colour orange – won’t grow orange flowers in the garden. He used to tell me about the time that the livery of the Glasgow Corporation buses from green, gold and white:
to the orange of the Strathclyde Buses because someone or other had complained that the ‘Catholic colours’ had been around too long.
Orange is a colour that screams sectarianism to anyone like me from the West Coast of Scotland.
Since leaving Scotland and sectarianism behind, I have tried to incorporate a bit of orange back into my wardrobe but this particular shade still makes me feel uncomfortable.
Generally to repair my confidence in the colour by watching the Orange Tango man Adverts
because these shoes are very easy to get up to vertical from a seated position.

Are there any colours that make you uncomfortable when you wear them? Why?
