Thursday Threads #40

The weather has been up and down again this week. Mainly down 😛 But even though it didn’t get above freezing yesterday, it’ll be in the 70s this weekend. But enough about that, on to my favorite outfit this week!

You Amaze Me, Street Color

I KNOW WHAT I AMI KNOW WHAT I AM

A color palette can come from just about anything. Choose your favorite poster, painting, tapestry – they’ve all got a palette. A sophisticated color palette can even come from something as simple (or not so simple) as getting dressed in the morning. Look Book and Wear Palettes both log inspiration in the form of street clothes and their color palettes.

You’ll notice that any good outfit has a set of colors that compliment one another (not to say they’re all complimentary colors). They don’t have to be one shade or hue, but they coordinate in a way that is beautiful. So why not grab a color palette from someone well-dressed?

Of course, the same is true in reverse: You can make a great outfit using a beautiful color palette. Find colors you love together, then search your closet and piece together something beautiful to wear! And if you’re anything like me, you’ll see an instant palette just by opening your closet doors. Hm, maybe I should branch out in my color choices…

As a side note, my favorite websites to find or make color palettes are COLOURlovers and Kuler (an Adobe site). Test them out, or find your palette somewhere in your world.

Where do you find your color palettes?

Thursday Threads #26

This is my little black dress. I would never have chosen it out on my own, but tried it on at the request of my friend. Instant love! It drapes really nicely and is so easy to dress up or down. I usually pair it with brightly colored accessories :-) Thurs Threads #26
