I really like this sweater. Obviously, I love the color. But more than that, in the pictures, to me at least, the color helps my arms look smaller. Which is kind of funny, as it is so bright! But, paired with the black tank, in this case, my eyes are drawn to the black color instead of the pink. Not sure why that is, or if it appears that way to you, but to me it does.
Yesterday I wore this outfit out for shopping, food, and the movies. I finally found myself in a Payless Shoe store as we were trying to waste some time before dinner. And yes, if you do not already know, I can verify for you that they have women's shoes up to size 13! How cool is that! Well, at least for those of you with larger feet that is. I do try and keep my eyes open for those of you that are in need! I found a cute pair of heels. It was really funny, as Jules picked out a cute pair of blue with white polka dots platform wedges and I thought they were super cute and I looked and they had the same shoe but in a pale pink. Of course for only $10 I had to have them. Have I ever shared with you all that Jules and I have the same size shoe? We always say we are going to borrow the others shoes but I don't know if we ever have. Funny!
Anyways, it was cool to find the same shoe in two different colors. I can totally pull of the pale pink color because my skin has a darker tone to it, whereas with Jules, her skin is more pinkish than mine and while she loves the pale pinky color, it just sort of blends too much with her skin tone. So for her the blue shoes looked great and really made for a nice pop of color.
If you can't tell, or don't already know this about me, I espouse contrasting colors. I think with your clothes, colors that contrast more with your skin tone look great. And I also think the same thing about eye shadows. I am so jealous of Jules' pretty brown eyes as she can totally pull off all sorts of cool colored shadows, whereas with me they just do not look as good. Colors make her pretty eyes pop so much more, but with me, earth tones really make my blue/green eyes look great.
Interesting stuff here people! What do you think? Do you like contrasting colors or do you prefer similar colors more so? Am I alone in my beliefs? Am I totally off base? Should I go for a super bright blue eyeshadow? Thoughts?
Okay, Love Ya!
