First, I decided to come up with something catchy to remember to organize my thoughts. It is "You can be a Chic Fabulous Fashionita using Color, Focus, and Fit.
Chic also stands for Color. When I was in high school, my mom borrowed a copy of "Color Me Beautiful" and it changed my life. My sisters, Mom, and I were all figuring out each others seasonal coloring. I remember we got down to 2 colors and we were looking all over the house for items that we could drape in front of me. We finally found a pretty yellow dress of my sisters and an ugly green suitcase. Yep, you guessed it I looked better in the ugly suitcase. It was at that moment that I learned that I was an autumn and my life changed. Do a quick search on the internet and you will find lots of sites that will help you discover your seasonal colors if you don't know them already. And, as you age, your coloring changes so you might need to re-evaluate.
Throughout high school, if I didn't feel like going to school, I would put on a black shirt and go tell Mom I wasn't feeling well. She would look at me, say, "you do look pale" and send me back to bed! Then, I could have my "Ferris Bueller Day." It works the other way, too. I know one of my very best colors is a dark peacock blue. I like to wear that on special dates and stuff to get more attention.
|Please don't laugh, black really is NOT my color!|
|Teal is a much better color for me!|
