Must We Really Retire Our Mini Shorts?

So fall is here and I should, by all fashionable reason, be parking my Mini Shorts on the shelf. But alas, I cannot bear surrendering them to a long cold my medicine cabinet. By Mini Shorts I hope you didn't think I was referring to cut off denim. No, no my friends I am referring to that electric shade of orange in Essie's Neon Collection. It has been my obsession for the last three months, and I must say it's going to be with me the next three. By all seasonal reason I should be coating my jagged, ill manicured nails with deep burgundies, reds, purples even, but nope. Orange it is. What the hell, the economy is sinking and we're all swimming in credit card debt, might as well have a little something to brighten up our lives.

P.S. If you're into lips as well as lacquers, check out M.A.C.'s Morange lipstick. It's 1990's heaven.
