Miss Sunshine, the Woman Who Surrounds Herself with the Color Yellow

What started as a creative way to honor her late father turned into an obsession for Ella London, a 35-year-old woman from Los Angeles who has been wearing and surrounding herself with everything yellow for the last seven years.

Ella has always loved the color yellow, but it only became an important part of her life 11 years ago. She and her fiancee were organizing their upcoming wedding and trying to find a color theme for the event. London knew that she didn’t want the classic white, red made her think of Christmas and all the other colors she considered were way too overused. But when her fiancee suggested yellow, something in her brain clicked. It reminded her of her father, who had passed away when she was only two months old, of his love for the color yellow and how it seemed to perfectly reflect his happy nature. She picked it as a way to honor her late father, but the wedding was only the beginning of her love affair with the color yellow.

The 35-year-old marketing professional never planned to become a one-color person, it just sort of happened naturally. Over the four years after her wedding, yellow just started appearing more and more in various areas of her life. She first received a yellow cardigan as a gift, which she now describes as the catalyst to her adopting a yellow wardrobe, and she started replacing things that broke around the house with yellow versions of those items. By 2012 she was wearing yellow everyday, and most of the things in her home were yellow as well.

Apart from an extensive collection of yellow clothing, London surrounds herself with thousands of yellow items, including a bright yellow Toyota Scion SB, yellow furniture and decorations, yellow accessories and even a wall of photos of herself wearing yellow.

While she acknowledges that her obsession with the color yellow isn’t considered normal by most people, she credits it for lifting her out of depression and helping her express herself. It’s also a medium for “spreading sunshine”.

Ella London is now known as “Miss Sunshine” or “The Yellow Lady” and she certainly lives up to those nicknames. Not only does she surround with yellow, but she also seems to ooze the fun and joy associated with the color. She loves putting a smile on people’s faces and brightening their day, and believes that her monochromatic wardrobe makes her more approachable.

 

London isn’t the only monochrome person we’ve featured on Oddity Central. A few years back, we wrote about the Green Lady of Brooklyn, who surrounds herself with everything green, and Kitten Kay Serra, the Pink Lady of Hollywood, who has long been obsessed with the color pink.
