Lets talk about colour…

If you visit Fake Fabulous regularly you will know that I LOVE bright colours.
Anything (and everything) goes!

However, loving a colour does not necessarily means that it suits us, does it?
Sometimes certain colours can be quite hard to wear.

Wouldn’t it be nice if our wardrobes were full of of clothes that really suited us?
Clothes that made our skin glow.
Clothes that made our eyes (and lips) pop!
Clothes that eliminated shadows from our face.

Dressing would be easy.
A joy even.

This blue is one of my favourite shades.
It is bold and bright, with a touch of warmth to it.
It makes me feel confident.
A happy colour.

This dress is a vintage gem that belongs to my elderly mother-in-law.
Unfortunately, she can no longer enjoy wearing it.
She is a VERY petite 4′ 10″, so the oversized nature of this dress was a total mystery to me!
I had to remove HUGE shoulder pads in order to reduce the volume on my 5′ 6″ (size 10) frame.
The shoulder pads were bonkers.
All-guns-blazing serious power-dressing pads.
I looked like an american football player!

My MIL originally wore this dress with a matching hat, to a wedding… could it get more 80’s!?

I wanted to bring the dress up to date in a very non-wedding way by adding vinyl leggings.

{Although I did wear these leggings to a real wedding….see that outfit HERE}

Keeping the rest of the accessories simple with chunky shoes, and a small caged clutch.
My eye brooch finished things off nicely.

Now something for you…

A personal colour analysis by Pamela of
Pamela is an expert in her field, with over 30 years of colour analysis experience.
She certainly knows her stuff!
{This post is NOT sponsored, in case you were wondering!}

Pamela is offering one lucky reader a completely personal colour analysis (which also includes makeup and style tips) plus a handy colour swatch to take out shopping.

Here is a sneaky peek of mine…

What is the point of colour analysis?

You might be wondering if there is any point to getting your colours ‘analysed’.
Is it not all just a bit of a gimmick?

I can understand why you might be dubious but I am a BIG believer in the power of colour.
Whether you wear it for the message it can send… {See a post about that HERE}
Or, because it makes you look better.
I’m all for that!

(Especially as I get older and more washed-out looking.)

After you understand your best colours, you can begin to shop more wisely.
Of course, I would never recommend throwing everything out that isn’t in your palette.
That would be wasteful, and unnecessary.
Having your colours analysed does not mean you can’t wear colours that aren’t ‘Yours’…you can!
Pamela will give you style tips to help you wear those items that are not in your palette.

Once you are armed with your colour palette you can be a swift and savvy shopper.
No more dithering and swithering.
One glance at the rail and you will know if that dress is for you!
Shopping becomes so much easier and enjoyable…. with more ftime for the important things like coffee, lunch or cocktails!

{See THIS POST about my idea of the perfect shopping trip}

Pamela is a lovely lady and not at all patronising, which is refreshing!
She will give you a totally personal analysis that is guaranteed to make you look and feel great…. saving you time AND money.
