Have you ever had your "Colours Done"?
I invited Imogen from Bespoke Image to come to my home and do a colour analysis. After spending a bit of time placing large multicolour swatches across my chest, she announced I was an "Exotic" colouring. What does that mean? I'm still getting my head around that one!
She gave me a book and a lovely colour swatch containing a palette of colours that are supposed to suit my warm skin tone. We then spent a lot of time talking about colour whilst going through the book, which covers how to wear your colours to suit your hair and eyes as well as your own personal style. Imogen highlighted 11 colours from my swatch that are supposed to enhance my eyes. We also spent come time talking about makeup and hair colours (should I ever wish to dye my hair).
What do I do now? Well, I begin to rebuild my wardrobe. Imogen's Inside Out Style Blog is full of information. Using some of her ideas, I am planning a capsule wardrobe for casual wear, utilising the few items that I love and can keep, and adding some desperately needed new tops. Armed with my swatches I went fabric shopping and came home with fabric for 4 new tops and a denim skirt. I can't wait to get them sewn up and see how I look!
