Forget Pantone's Color of the Year.  Forget Color Me Beautiful.  Forget seasons and skin tone and eye color for a minute.  What color really resonates with you?  What color draws you in and makes you feel good…or good about yourself, if you're wearing it?   For me, that color is green.

I appreciate lots of shades of green and always have, but the real winner is a good, bright emerald or kelly green.  This is the color I always look for if I'm getting a souvenir t-shirt.  Besides, t-shirts, I don't have a lot of emerald green clothing.  It's hard to pull off a head-to-toe green look without recalling St. Patrick, Kermit, or an alien invasion.  I do have a gorgeous emerald green silk skirt that I wore just last weekend.  It never fails to get compliments, and I always feel like a million bucks in it.  Maybe it's time I add a little more green to my closet?  Maybe some shoes or a scarf.  Or jewelry?  Anyone know where I can get some emerald green jewelry?

P.S.  All this green requires a lot of your hard earned green…sorry for my very green taste.

As a personal stylist in Richmond, VA, I strive to make wardrobe choices clear and easy for women who are short on time, overwhelmed by their closets, or transitioning from one period of life to another.  Let's connect!
