Time to toss the black clothes!

Photo of a woman running on a rainy day.

I think it’s safe to say a lot of people think that all women ought to own at least one black dress. But while some women look amazing in black others just look drab.

I’m in the drab camp.

Realizing this, I recently decided to get rid of my black clothes. Well, I got rid of my black tops. Black pants look good with practically anything.

Next to my face, I need colour! Question is: What colour?

To answer that I did a little on-line search (of course!) and found this handy little quiz. I took it and discovered warm tones suit me best.

Armed with this new information, I hit the shops. (Normally, the first place I look is the sale rack, but after doing the quiz, I went looking for something orangey-red.)

I found a super orangey-red dress, and I wish I had a photo for you, but since I’m just learning how to handle this whole WordPress blogging thing, that photo will have to be the one that got away.

In any case, I found the dress, loved it, bought it, wore it to a dinner party, got loads of compliments and felt good.

And isn’t that all any of us really want? We just want to feel good. Especially when we’ve forked out our hard-earned cash to buy something to wear.

So, how about it? Do you rock black? Or are you wearing it because you think it’s slimming?

Take the quiz. I kid you not: It takes under a minute. Then, let me know what you think. Or send me your style tips: I’m always keen to hear new ideas!

Thanks, for being here. : )

Out with the old in with the new!
