Come Say Y'ello'w to Ecochic Fashion

Yellow is the colour of the Solar Plexus Chakra, also known as Manipura. Hailed as the happiest colour in the spectrum, yellow has also been known to:
  • Stimulate mental processes
  • Stimulate the nervous system
  • Activate memory
  • Encourage communication
So next time you need a quick pick-me-up or want to strike up a really good conversation - reach into your wardrobe for a burst of ecochic yellowy goodness!
