I've said it before, and I'll say it again: no outfit is complete without yellow.  Just like food is sawdust without butter, which just happens to be this same sunny shade.  (Coincidence?  I think not.)  Even the word "golden" is a charmer, so nice I used it twice, starting with last week's: Golden Girl Swirl and Three Cheers for Cheesecake.

So, I've added a healthy helping of bright yellow beads to this week's necklaces.  They illuminate everything in their orbit, making the blacks and tans more dramatic, the jewel-toned rainbows more cheerful, and the coppers more brightly burnished, like small, smoldering southwestern suns -- or corn off the cob mixed with colorful veggies.

For the record, I've never eaten at a Golden Corral, and I never plan to.  Buffets aren't my bag unless they're of the brunch or dessert variety, as both offer decadent delights like Danish, brownies, and fruit with whipped cream.  

Speaking of temptations, what I've come to call "the experiment" is still going strong as I enter month four.  My laundry pile is approaching staggering heights as I continue my mission to wear everything in my closet before initiating the next spin cycle -- or shopping spree.  I'm not going to lie; I miss buying clothes the way some women miss eating chocolate -- and incidentally, have since upped my cocoa consumption.    

And now, before I ride off into the, er, sunset, some pictures in the palette of PacMan:

I'm not a big fan of yellow for clothing, but I don't mind it in accessories.
