I've said before that I'm not too fond of all those color analysis systems like Color Me Beautiful and the like. I find them very restrictive and not very practical. I've been typed by several different color consultants, and been given a different "season" each time. I always figured that if no one could agree on my best colors, then obviously there wasn't much substance behind the "science".
Nevertheless, I have up to this time chosen to dress in "warmer" colors rather than "cooler" colors. My coloring is on the golden side rather than the pink, so it would seem that the warmer colors would suit me best.
Or maybe not.
I have come across an expert in the field of color and image who's ideas are so revolutionary and cutting edge that they turn the whole color analysis game on its head. She's pointed out how the early color analysts misinterpreted and misapplied color theory from the art world to the arena of personal image. She's unveiled the mistake of trying to harmonize your clothing with your superficial coloring...and her reasoning is actually quite astonishing. She's got thirty years of experience and a whole bunch of research behind her.
So I am going to test the waters and see what I think of her system. And when I get the results I'll let you know what I think. And if the results totally knock my socks off, I'll be certain to let you all know her name!
See you next time...same blog time...same blog channel....
