cheap(er) chic: marigold

I just adore marigold--it is such a warm and happy shade of oh so popular yellow. Between the sun shining in my office window today and the fact that I am gaga for the below clutch from etsy seller, {ao3} designs, I thought marigold would be the perfect color for this weeks cheap(er) chic!

dvf tunic ($225), stunning silk clutch from {a03} designs ($34), birdie earrings ($18)and necklace ($42) from anthropologie, chiffon dress from j.crew ($49.99), clutch by michael kors ($198), sandals from dillards ($99)
Ok, and yes I cheated a little bit ($25 over my $200 limit) with the dvf tunic but it was just too perfect to pass up! Is there a trend, color, pattern or piece that you would like feautured in the next cheap(er) chic?

I normally don't like the colour yellow.
To me it's "YELL"-ow.
But these I really like.
Maybe I can work some 'Marigold' into my life.
Thanks,
Andrea

I used to wear yellow and lot a few years back and got rid of it all, guess I should have kept it!! I love the accent yellows now!!

you might have already done this before.. and it may be boring, but what about summer black clothes??

Yum yum! This really is one of my current top color picks--but I'm so pale that I can't wear it against my face. thank goodness for bags and shoes, right? ;)

I love marigold. I fell in love with it when I saw this in a Martha Stewart wedding magazine.
