Palette Purpose

This example uses my colors, as a Jeweltone Summer.

Here and in her book and other videos, Jennifer Butler talks about dressing from your palette with intention.  As you set your intention for 2014, and perhaps go through your wardrobe, take some time to bring renewed focus to the purpose of your clothing.  Each item communicates an aspect of your palette and of your focus for the day.

DIY Couture

Without quite intending it, Rosie Martin, author of DIY Couture, has created a system to sew without patterns which can be modified to fit the types!

pull down menus

If you're looking at the blog online, you'll hopefully notice that I added pull down menus to organize topics so that it's clearer and cleaner.  Suggested by my T1 friend and T1 husband.  I get to keep all the details and info., but it's not such an overload.

What is your New Year's fashion resolution?

I am so inspired from my recent trip to CA Bay area, and visit to Serrahna, as well as picking up this amazing book on sewing without patterns in an Oakland bookstore, that I decided that in 2014, I am only going to buy handmade clothing or make clothing myself! Also, I love clothing reconstruction.

SERRAHNA! To be a queen

My husband and I decided spur of the moment to visit the Bay Area for the holiday.  While we were here, we were able to visit a few friends and one of them took us to Serrahna!  You may possibly have heard of her designs before through Jennifer Butler Color.  Andrea has worked with Jennifer Butler for years and knows the seasons.  She was able to give me personalized summer suggestions from her store.

Designer Andrea

The store is amazing and it feels like being  a queen.
Serrahna:  vb, hindi:  to praise, to appreciate, to beautify. 5303 College Ave. Oakland, CA

Women's boutique featuring the Indian influenced designs of Andrea Serrahn. 

Here are the items I purchased, and I wish I could
 have bought more and may do so by mail.

This was the first thing I tried on... Perfect. 
It's recycled sweaters that has been adorned.

This is a coat that came in four colors
 and I wanted them all.

This is a coat but it's blouse material

Get to a 10!

Haven't you had the experience or realization that when you go to a rack of clothes in a store and look for the colors you like, without also thinking about how they will specifically look on you, you might as well be picking a painting to go on the wall (or hang in your closet and be pretty), because they will NOT necessarily be the right colors for you at all. We can love so many colors, but they may not love us. We can wear colors we enjoy and feel happy, but others will not feel that you are in harmony. Isn't that the whole point?

For example, I love coral, no bueno on me, I would love to wear full on t4, no bueno... etc. and sometimes T2 is so boring, but when I got to 2/4 with the right contrast to match my hair, skin and eyes, nothing is jarring, and it's not ultimately too boring... but I could pick a million "wrong" outfits, that might be super cute, but not in harmony with my whole self, both my natural colors, but also my NATURE, right?

This is also why I sometimes get irked when you see comments in all of these color groups about people's palettes, "oh, what beautiful colors!" Hello! All colors are beautiful. If it isn't the right match for the person, and the palette isn't in a pic WITH the person, how do we know they are beautiful on them? I know that when I saw people put in their colors with Taylore Sinclaire and they looked so amazing that you could breathe and it just felt so right, but they hated them. She makes a strong point that it's not what you like, it's what likes you.

I wonder if a person wears the recommended palette and starts to get compliments or noticed others feel at peace with them, if that isn't reinforcing. Also, within each palette are usually many colors, someone could choose the focus on the ones they like more than the ones they don't. And ultimately this is voluntary. I just often wondered why people seek for answers and then defy them? chuckle

I sometimes marvel at the whole concept that we really can't see ourselves without effort. So the palette is almost a way to have a reference of ourselves. If we could see ourselves easily, we wouldn't spend so much time looking at our hair, eyeballs, blush color, etc. etc. and getting feedback. The more we know how we actually look, in a way is the more we know ourselves, certainly when it comes to being able to choose a wardrobe that is in harmony and reflects us. Over and over it's interesting to see women think they are one type, try it for months or longer, and "realize" they are another, and suddenly pop into frame. I also think that we change over time, emotionally and physically, so a palette we get at one stage in our life, won't be our palette forever. AND every source of palettes is filtered through an artist's vision, and clearly they don't all line up, so sometimes we wiggle around trying to find the system that fits us best too. 

Here Taylore talks about information to get you to a 10!

Celebrity Eye Patterns - Updated

I have done this before with Soft Summer eyes, but here's some celebrities of different seasons and their eyes.  click all for larger

Here is Cameron's quintessential sanguine spring eye.

I want to say that Lauren Graham is a contrasting summer, and her eyes might be crackled glass lymphatic phlegmatic, but I'm not sure.  I will have to find some more.

Here's another

Green is "generally" autumn choleric, according to Greek Medicine based on the four humors,  though the pattern is a bit hard to read in Julianne Moore's eyes (most agree she is a Warm Autumn, though some say Clear Spring).  It is also thought to be Spring by Irenee Riter.  (But Caygill uses green a lot for Winters too).

Juliane MooreAutumnBridgette Raes

Another of Julianne's eye showing a very irregular nerve wreath (aztec sun).

Here's Lindsay Lohan's autumn eye with psora.
Correction, the psora are an Autumn feature, but she also has a Spring starburst.  In CMAS, she is a Spring, elsewhere she's seen as an Autumn.  Warm Autumn and Warm Spring can share the most colors between their palettes.

Another view of Lindsay's unique eye.  It might even be a shaker eye.

Brooke Shield's eye is crisp and deep blue, winter melancholic eyes.

Here's another... can't quite see the pattern.

Jennifer Connelly's eyes always puzzle me.  They are so clearly autumn (with psora) and yet she is so definitely winter.  Update: now I see from Suzanne Caygill that green is a quite common color for Winter eyes.
