DID YOU KNOW By Mariette Kammerer
No, I did not know. Maybe just a little . Colors are very personal and have various affects on individuals. I have worn black for so many years in my life, I am tired of it and believe I can feel and look just as elegant, sexy in a yellow suit or dress. The cut is important, yellow also makes me feel powerful, playful, elegant. BLACK GOES IN TRASH SOON.
I also see it how certain color have new meaning to me, so I believe nothing is really set in stone and that we change as life goes on. In younger years I would love brown and orange in the bedroom(very disgusting now) and black, grey and magenta in the living area. I think we go through phases….but I never felt that a ‘grey’ color is staleness + depression. Look at the colors explained as a fun conversation only.

I look at yellow now as a power color, that is new with me and I don’t have a stitch of yellow in my closet. That will change. I would love to get your feedback, send me your comments below. CHEERS!
