please excuse the cat hair

Preface: This blog post and these photos were taken months ago but I forgot to hit publish until just now when I realized how barrren my blog has been as of late.  I also have a confession to make, the no shopping challenge died around early November but hey I lasted 3 months without shopping, that's a personal triumph in and of itself.  More on why I had to hit the stores to come, but for now, photos when there was no snow on the ground and writing from when I had time to blog.  Enjoy!

With my fashion styling business, I help women (and men!) decipher the colours that look best on them.  This not only helps their skin tone appear brighter, it also makes getting dressed and going shopping easier because you can gravitate towards your hues.  I'm a Warm Autumn so I look best in gold coloured jewellery and shades of brown, beige, army green and cream.  When I was younger, I wore whatever colour I wanted to and didn't pay much attention to whether the colour worked with my palette (especially because I prefer to stock my summer palette with brights and neons). I still think it's important to wear what you love, regardless of colour, however I know that when I wear my colours I am looking and feeling my best. 

Unsure of your colour palette (aka season?) You can check out this easy quiz for fast results.

PS And yes about the post title, please excuse the cat hair, I didn't have time to lint brush before outfit photos and Mama Sita's hair particles are clingy fellas!

  4. You're right about the autumnal hues - you look positively radiant. Maybe it's the effect of the skirt, but your scarf has an illusion of shimmer from a distance. I love it! Happy New Year Emily. Hope we can catch up in 2015 - we're long overdue.

  5. Found your blog recently and I’d like to say that I’m in love with it!

One of my daily joys is reading the lovely comments you leave. It may take a day or two (or three, depending on how hectic life gets!) but I will stop by your slice of the blogosphere soon! xo Emily
