self-portrait challenge: what i wear



What I wear: color.

A half dozen years ago I was morally opposed to color. If you slid open the curtain to my closet, you'd be assaulted by a homogeny of black, grey, and brown, with the occasional navy tossed in just for kicks. I liked classic. I liked anonymity. I was also very unsafe in parking lots where I tended to blend in with the asphault. There were a couple of close calls.

Somewhere between then and now I discovered color. When I wear these stripey knee socks, I take myself far less seriously.

Which is a good thing.

I love these socks....although the angle of this photo makes me wonder if this is what the wicked witch last saw before that house smashed on her? Her striped socks were kinda similar?????

I could have written this post. Seriously. I'm wearing bright red right now.

that is exactly what i've always loved about clothes....i use them to make me take myself more or less seriously, feel cute or sophisticated, trendy or classic.
and i would definitely feel fun & cute in those! =)

Love the socks! Unfortunately for me, I am dedicated to the color brown. I will chose that over anything else out there. I have been buying alot of grass green lately, though. Maybe I am coming out of my shell, LOL!

Love it!

I'm a color girl, myself. I have a hard time making myself tone it down sometimes. Drab, I'm not. :)
