Your Colors

Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter?  What are your colors?  If I'm talking a foreign language, don't worry, you're not alone!  I'm talking about Seasonal Color Analysis, and I am a BIG fan.  Basically, seasonal color analysis is the concept that certain colors look better on you than others because of the undertones of your skin.  There are four categories arranged around the seasons and then three sub-categories within each season. 

When I had my colors done nine years ago it was really empowering for me.  I felt like it made shopping a lot easier, because it just eliminated a bunch of clothes I didn't even need to bother with, because they were the wrong colors for me.  As I told Greg, it was an investment because it saved me from a lot of bad future purchases, including clothes, make up and highlights!  It eliminated that dressing room discussion with myself of "Hmm, is this color good on me, does it wash me out, maybe with a little tan?" or the gasp when I say myself in a picture and looked totally washed out and yucky.

Personal Palette (http://www.personalpalette.com/) specializes in color analysis.  It's where I had my colors done, and where I send my friends and clients.  You get a nifty little color book to take home and carry in your purse so you'll always have your colors with you.  Just ask my friends, I never leave home without it (I'll be glad to show ya)!  They also go over make up, hair color, and skin care - it's fabulous.

If you've had your colors done, but don't know where to go from here, shoot me an email (kate@steenwykbuilders.com).  I'd love to help map out a plan to incorporate your colors into your wardrobe.  If you haven't had your colors done, no worries, I can still help! =)

So, what do you think?  Do you know what your colors are?

  2. Still love having had my colors done too Kate, has made life so much easier when I go shopping. It is nice to know what colors look good on me and which don't. I get compliments from just wearing a simple t-shirt that is in my color. I never leave home without my book either, never know when you are going to need it! I am a burnished autumn!
