I felt very summery in this outfit yesterday. The main theme for this day was yellow. On July 12th Everybody, Everywear is challenging people to wear yellow. I only have 4 yellow items in my closet, and I definitely have to dress professional that day, so I moved my yellow day to the weekend. I also feel economical in this outfit- as nearly all of it came from thrift/consignment shops. I got my skirt and bracelet at Twice as Nice, the necklace at Clothing Exchange, and the shoes at Goodwill. The most I spent at any of one of those stores was $35- and I know the skirt (which is from NY & CO) would have cost that much new. All together I got 3 pairs of shoes, 2 skirts, 1 shirt, 1 dress, 1 necklace and 1 bracelet. Not bad! Unfortunately as I was taking it off last night the necklace broke. I know 1 bead went down the drain but maybe I’ll be able to restring the others. I was a bit hesitant about wearing such bright colors- especially the bright bold plastic bracelet and necklace- but, both of them (along with the shoes) made me feel fabulous, so I decided not to care what others may think and just be fabulous. I think it worked, as I got several compliments.
- Color you don’t wear (yellow and hot pink)
- Funky colored shoes
One of the challenges is to wear complimentary or two thirds of a triad. Reading up on those I realized that this out fit has analogous colors- colors adjacent to each other on the color wheel- Yellow, orange, red orange (coral), red (pink), and red violet.
