Seamwork, the monthly magazine from Colette patterns posted an article on how to find your colors. I downloaded the recommended Sherwin and Williams app. I took selfies of myself and ran the program. Problem is, I didn't like most of the colors. I don't wear pastels. Can you really imagine me in pastels? I can't. There were lots of grays and some black as well as a number of different reds, yellows and golds. These are colors I can relate to. I already have plenty of grays and blacks in my wardrobe. Big step for me, I ordered a red and white stylized floral for another Gypsy top. I've got a nice gold rayon knit in the collection (thanks Caroline; a much better word than stash!) that will work with my gray, black and white neutrals. I also ordered a coral, gray and ivory knit from emmaonesock to go with gray or white pants. I have three pairs of gray pants and I'm making a pair of white linen pants. I've got some red linen that would look pretty as a summer woven tee with white and gray and my multitude of black pants. Baby steps for the color. Oddly I did make some pieces a few years ago with more color but they are gone from my wardrobe due to stains or relegated to exercise clothing due to wear.
