all the colours of the rainbow

i suppose a large part of my desire to work as a visual merchandiser stems from my love of organisation and order. as a child i loved to organise my pencils, pens and paints in order of the rainbow and even today i cannot eat a packet of Smarties without first laying everything out in colour order, only then will i proceed to eat them with great satisfaction that everything was perfect. yeah i know, some people would say i have a 'problem' and most definately does it snowball into O.C.D. when i am really stressed (think refusing to relax sit down until everything in the room is tidy and back in its 'place' or re-organising my friends CD collection in her flat while flat out drunk). but seriously, there is nothing that makes me happier than being asks to merchandise jersey or hoisery in colour order, sad but true!
so yeah A.P.C.'s latest update to their website to include all the clothing in order of colour nearly made me squeal with excitement and made the whole process of browsing the site a lot more fun, well for me! part of me wishes every site was like this but i think that's just how my brain works when building outfits, i go by colour and texture first. so all this thinking about the rainbow spectrum ended up getting me itching to do some this evening and i ended up attacking my poor wardrobe of clothes. um yeah, it might be a tiny 'mental' problem i have, but look how pretty it makes everything look!!
