Friend Friday--COLOR!

Color! A subject right up my alley.  Thanks again to KT at Modlychic for putting this all together!  Now for the questions and answers~

1.  What color dominates your closet?

All of them!!! All colors are my friends—the brighter and the more varied, the better.

This is just my Florida vacation wardrobe.

2. If money weren't an issue how would you change the color emphasis in your closet?

I really wouldn’t change my color scheme because at this point (lots of Color me Beautiful) I know what colors look good on me. And that is really the most important criteria for dressing with color—what best enhances your skin tone and eyes. Now if retailers offered brighter colors in the winter? I’d love to brighten up my winter wardrobe.

3. What is your mantra about mixing colors?

Have fun and embrace color—be inspired and try something new! Don’t Be afraid~

4. For you, how do you incorporate color into your outfits?

I don’t “incorporate” color, I need to edit color. I need to make sure I’m not a walking color wheel and therefore don’t look like a crazy old lady. Choosing what color to wear on a daily basis comes from an inspiration from nature/art, or a vision that comes to me (which is  not like voices….really) or from someone’s outfit.

5. Which blogger(s) do you think do a good job of incorporating color into their wardrobe?

Hate to do this but some people I aspire to: Vanessa at Big Girl, Small Budget, Kasmira at What I Wore Today, Ariel at Artfully Awear, Sheila at Ephemera—they like to push the boundaries of color—and I want to be right there with them!


  1. Paula...I love your mantra and you are a queen of color. I forget sometimes that there are ladies afraid of color. I think your artistic flair really shines in your styling!

  2. Hi Paula, thank you for your lovely comment on my blog. It's nice to meet you, and I'm interested in your color ideas. I'd be interested to know what you think of Sal's color palette at I love the colors on her, but probably wouldn't choose them for myself. Maybe I'm missing out. A designer friend suggested "clear" colors for me, not muddy, and I'm still wondering exactly what that means.

  3. Aw, thank you so much for the mention, Paula! Like you, I adore colour and sometimes I know I overdo it. Heh. But I'm okay with that - because *I* love it.

    I feel sorry for people who don't have colour in their wardrobes.

  4. It's curious to me that I am willing to mix just one color with a neutral. I'm wondering aloud how I could learn to be more adventurous.

  5. Pam~Thanks so much! There are so many people afraid of color and we have to liberate them!
    Susan~ So nice to meet you also! I saw you on Terri's blog and I'm going to email you as my response would be too lengthy here! Talk to you soon!
    Sheila~I like to go too far, then I know when to stop, no? I feel badly for them too--they am missing out!
    Terri~and go for a full color pallette? Wouldnt that be fun???
