Fashion Flashback: Golden Yellow

Spring is approaching and I'm loving all of the bold and unexpected colors I'm seeing in stores, magazines and on the runway.  My favorites are golden yellow or mustard yellow (I particularly like it when paired with navy blue -- see the inspiration board below).  

I found two gorgeous editorials from a February 1961 Mademoiselle titled "The Spring Fashion Picture - How to Put Yourself In It" and "Wild Oat: Ripe for the Picking."  The article refers to the color as "wild oat," describes it as being "cosmetic as a sunny disposition."  It was just as fashionable in 1961 as it is now -- Ashley Greene was most recently seen wearing a lace L'Wren Scott dress in the shade on the cover of this month's issue of Lucky Magazine.
