Friend Friday: Color Wars

Hey Hey!! You have to come and join us for Friend Friday!! It's really fun and good way to meet and learn about other bloggers!!  Go visit Katy at ModlyChic for details!!!

Color Wars

1. What color dominates your closet?
It WAS black, but since I made a commitment to adding color now I have a pretty even mix of reds, blues, turquoise and patterns. Lots of animal prints too!! RAWR!

2. If money weren't an issue how would you change the color emphasis in your closet?
I would have alot more shades of pink, turquoise, teal and maybe even some neutrals.  I have so much black from my pre-blogging days I am trying to wean off it. I have a policy that I am no longer allowed to buy black- only color.
I would also have a personal wardrobe person who bought me fabulous clothes and colors and made me look amazing EVERYDAY! NOW wouldn't that be cool?  Oh yeah, I would ask for more patterns that suit me!

3. What is your mantra about mixing colors?

I don't preach anything about this.. man, I am on a steep learning curve myself. I learn alot from looking at nature and seeing what colors naturally go together and of course, from all the great blogs out there. I am more into matchy matchy than completely wild.. I am not quite there yet with wild color combo's!!

4. For you, how do you incorporate color into your outfits?

Mostly with scarves and jewelry.  I start with basics and then add as I go.  I also like to add a bright sweater or tights. I LOVE tights!!

5. Which blogger(s) do you think do a good job of incorporating color into their wardrobe?

There are many but the first blogger I came across that totally inspired me was Kasmira from What I Wore Today, she is so creative its NOT FAIR! :)


  1. I agree about Kasmira. She is great with color.

  2. Love your answers, and I think you are doing a pretty fab job of adding color to your outfits....:)

  7. Kasmira is definitely a master at color mixing, but no one does animal prints like you do!

  8. a bold print can make just as much of a statement as a bright color, and you do some fabulous things with prints!
