Default Sartorial colours

This is something I've been thinking about recently.

Do you regularly wear your favourite colour? Does it suit you?

Blue, blue, blue .... my entire warderobe consists only of items that have a tinge of blue-tone in them .... from baby to navy blue, from lilac/mauve to purple or burgundy, from turquoise to teal .... and gray instead of black or brown as mute staple.

And I'm vain enough to think it suits me. Nobody has ever said otherwise - and I get the most compliments when wearing a very dusty jeans blue.

Oh - and I love doing color consulting for others! I guess color fetishism is a bit of a hobby horse of mine.

You asked one of these questions Sassy that can make me go on forever!

I think I manage to wear my favorite color least. Not on purpose. I just don't shop according to color and I guess I don't encounter it that much. Plus I'm pale enough that most colors seem to work.


So...why exactly has this specific topic been on your mind?

I have very few coloured clothing; I had to buy nothing but black and white while working at Wal-Mart because it was the dress code. I wouldn't know what colour to wear for my complexion.

I wear a lot of my favorite color, green. As a redhead with a fair complexion, it works well for me.

But overall, I just wear a bunch of colors, period. I'm a big vintage clothes girl--I have tons of vintage dresses in tons of colors. You will recognize me by the sheer brightness of my outfit.

Just thinking about my colour scheme. It's grey, black, blue and red. Of course, on a tight budget and at such a size, it's a bit harder finding specific colours.... but just thinking whether I could pull off purple.

Green works for you? Let's have a look?

I am derailing a little bit. I just noticed you are from Louisiana. Well, at least you live there currently. I recently moved up here to California from the south and I made some folks a pot of classic red beans and rice with corn bread and big pot of mustard greens and bacon.

I am extremely, EXTREMELY, sad to say that they did not find the appeal of classic red beans and rice. At first I thought maybe I messed it up, but nope, it tasted amazing and was as good and delicious as ever.

It does--I always feel pretty in green.

Of course, as I scroll through the pics on my computer, I'm not seeing any where I'm actually wearing green. Can I interest you in another shade?

Most colors work for me, but usually they have to be either darker or very light since my skin tone is tanned.

I would suggest sampling a wide variety of shades for us, and we will make some snap decisions.

Those ingrates! I moved to Louisiana from the Midwest three years ago, and although I do sometimes complain about my current home, the food is the best. Ever. EVER. It's crawfish season right now. Glorious, glorious crawfish boils.

Since y'all asked so nicely, and I have nothing better to do--here you go!

I give you--me in blue. Hold tight, red is coming up next.



(Even more important than the dress, let's take a moment to look at that ice cream cone. Pumpkin! So awesome.)

It appears that the ice cream cone itself matches your dress. That's some impressive coordination

I can't say I've ever heard of pumpkin ice cream.

And there is red.



And here is stripes--mostly just because I love that my dog is in this one and I thought y'all needed to see it.



Okay, done shamelessly clogging up the thread with pics.

Thank you! Pumpkin ice cream is pretty fan-freaking-tastic. It's not fall without pumpkin ice cream.

I'm getting annoyed at how all the women on this section of the forum are ridiculously cute. Curse you internet, for putting all of these wonderful things in front of me yet making them so hard to find in real life.

Also, that blue dress with the dots is super awesome.

I think the stripes one looks great. Minus the dog of course.

Ice cream especially for autumn? Heresy!

That, sir, is a two-way street. Do you know how hard it is to get a big guy's attention?

It's really hard. I'm just sayin'.

And thanks--that dress is one of my favorites.

Aw, the dog is the accessory that makes this outfit!

See, that's why pumpkin ice cream is so genius. It extends ice cream season my several months, and it tastes like heaven.

Surely it tastes like *pumpkin*

Here's the cue for someone to post themselves wearing orange.
