Happy Fabulous Friday, Fashionistas!
First of all, the winner of yesterday's awesome accessory goes to.....
You are the winner beautiful woman so email me and give me your address so I can send you something magnificent!!!!!
I'm so glad you all loved the Fashion Personality Series so much...I enjoyed bringing it to you so we'll have to do more things like that.
Maybe body types next???? Hmmmm....Or Color Groups????
On to today's QUESTIONS...for FYI Friday!!!!!
Here we go:
Q: I've been rolling this one around in my head this past week.
Back in the 1900s (late 80s/90s), your correct color just needed to be near your face.
But I am now wondering if I should even have khaki/tan pants or skirts in my wardrobe.
What's your opinion on this? Thanks! Diana
A: I think the reason color experts said you only had to wear the correct colors near your face is because no one wanted to be so bossy to tell you to wear the right colors all the time....and then along came Shari....hahahahaha!!!!!
Sooooooo, as you begin to wear your best colors, you def want to keep them near your face. BUT, in order to build a successful wardrobe that will mix and match, all the time, from season to season, you will eventually stop buying the wrong colors (even on the bottom!) and replace with the RIGHT colors...even ON your bottom!
So, bossy Me tells you to start buying khaki and tan....for pants and skirts, too...if khaki and tan ARE your best colors...if not, you know what they are.
Q: Black twill pants - even the ones that are supposed to resist fading fade so quickly. I've tried the trick for jeans that you use, Shari, but it doesn't seem to work on twill. Any suggestions? Thanks, Carol
A: You may already do this, but you MUST wash them inside out. And honestly, that's the best thing I know to do other than the tip I gave you in the book that you seem to already know about. For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, to maintain the consistency of dark color jeans, simply soak them in warm water with a cup of salt for about 20-30 minutes, then wash inside out using a cold water rinse.
Q: Does someone always tend to fall into one style category (Fashion Personality?) Because I know my mood changes a lot (thank you, horror-mones). And with my mood change I like to change up my look...am I a bi-polar dresser? or what? lol, I guess I do kind of relate to Creative Original, but not fully...idk...:) I go from girly and romantic, to hippie, to classy, to rock n roll, to whatever...lol -Mariah
A: Oh Mariah you're cracking me up...and I'm sure everyone else is cracking up too after reading this! Horror-mones????? Now THAT's a good one! And Bi-Polar Dresser???? Girlfriend!
See, here's the thing. The reason for the style categories is because most women need guidance on figuring out how to put things together...hence the style categories make it so much easier....it also helps to know what your style category is so you can shop and know WHAT to buy. Most women are mainly ONE category and then can add accessories from other categories to go outside of their fashion style box. But we all know, dear Mariah, that you are a fashionista and can probably wear all of them...and look good too! Love ya! Mean it!
Q: Do you have some pictures or suggestions on how to wear scarves if you're a Pure Natural? I want to try to do the scarves thing, but am unsure of how that would look. For some reason, they always look pretty on other gals, but seem silly on me when I wear them. I have just taken to wearing my outdoor scarf around the office when it's cold. But I'm sure that's cringeworthy :) Thanks!! Kathy
A: Good question! The most important thing is to wear a scarf that is a natural light weight fiber like cotton. Then simply wear it around your neck either draped in front or close around your neck. Here are three pics to help you visualize how they might look:
Okay sistah chicks! Hope this was helpful today....
