I actually look good in a true jade or emerald green but realized last St. Patrick's Day that I didn't own anything green so I remedied that.

But yeah, let's not bother them with such unimportant matters, right?
That's the dumbest thing I've ever read.

What message, exactly, would I be sending out by wearing a color that someone else didn't think looked good on me? Other than I'm going to wear what I like and I don't give a crap what anyone else thinks?

Along with this topic, is there a color that you (everyone) feels the most confident in? For me, it's blue.

I wish I could wear those shades of green. I LIKE green...but it doesn't like me. lol


I'm a big fan of Mardi-gras, so I have LOTS of green beads. I just throw on some green beads, and I'm good to go on St. Patrick's Day. LOL

Khaki/oatmeal/beige looks terrible on just about everyone.

I just wear what I like. No matter which colour it is.

You probably intuitively pick out colors that flatter your complexion, without even realizing it.

Well, no. I can wear this color quite well. It is not my fave, you understand. But for awhile in the late 1980s into the early nineties, it was practically the only color I could find that qualified as my Color Me Beautiful colors. Wearing so much of it pushed me out of that confining space, actually. But, honestly, I looked pretty good in the color.

In all fairness, it's a color that works for me, as well. I'm typically considered in the "cool" range, but the beige colors always worked just fine for me.

Sounds like you and I have similar skin tones. I used to have this emerald green sweater that, when I wore it, people would actually stop me and tell me that I had beautiful eyes. It just made my eyes pop and flattered my skin tone (and I should probably find something else that color, just for the validation. )

I've been looking through some of the winter sales in the past few weeks, and I've really noticed how this season's color palettes are Not For Me. Aside from black and navy, which I can pull off, there haven't really been a lot of items I've seen that are in shades that I must own.
