Color Me Beautiful

Some of you may remember the book "Color Me Beautiful" published in 1987.  Then again, some of you may not have been born yet.  But I digress.

My friends and I went nuts for this book.  It was supposed to be the final word on the colors that one looked best in, based on your skin tone, hair color and eye color.  I had 2 copies, but I'm not sure why.  I probably wanted to scribble in one and the other was left pristine.  Both copies are long gone from my personal library and I no longer feel compelled to follow such strict rules about color.

I wear what I want and mix colors willy-nilly.  Aren't I just the wildest woman ever?  Seriously, I generally think I look good in just about all colors and you probably do too.  Live on the edge.  Wear some fuchsia with your green. Or purple.  Or yellow.  Or salmon.  I know, salmon's not a color ---- it's a fish.  But I think you know what I mean.

Faded colors are my favorites, but I occasionally wear a bold red or turquoise.

Try as I might, I just can't find a color of yellow that looks good on me. Orange is tricky too, but I can find some faded oranges that work. I played soccer on a team with bright "Home Depot" orange jerseys. I don't know what it is about bright orange, but those jerseys definitely took away my soccer mojo, which wasn't that great to begin with. Thankfully, gray jerseys made their appearance the next year. Hallelujah!
