I’m dashing around town like I’ve just stepped into an ABBA song, and I have exactly 2 minutes and 47 seconds to find the most perfect, the most colorful, the most seductive dress for summer’s first most fun weekend. I had spent all winter then spring draped in earthy tones that at times made me wonder if I was actually turning into a Red Leaf Maple Tree. Or did I just look like one?
Four hours later, I’m slipped into a knit tank dress that felt like if the little hairs on my skin could have sex with the fibers in my gentle new dress, they so would be! And I couldn’t have been more comfortable. =)
And then…baaam! Like a blade through a grass patch. I felt the wrath of the fashion goddesses as I flip through my good friend’s camera, realizing I LOOKED LIKE A BLOATED PEACOCK!
All I knew that night was that I was having fun and I felt good, so I attempted to let all those worries about my peacock dress disappear with the sunset. As any wise woman would, I learned from my color conundrum and have moved on to sizzling new summer styles. To more ahem…flattering ones, of course.
When hurriedly shopping for bold new dresses, because you’ve been listening to 80’s music all day, and can’t simply find anything to wear to tonight’s soirée…take a friend! Good God, please take a friend!
I now know that before one dives head first into a rainbow; it’s best to peek at a color wheel, or at least the latest issue of ELLE Magazine.
Apparently, just because two or three colors were sloshed onto a cute v-neck, knee length summer dress…does not mean they compliment your skin, or your hair the same way they compliment each other.
