Do you remember this blast from the past?
The Year was 1986...
We lost Christa McAuliffe and the Challenger crew. Pixar Animation Studios was formed. Out of Africa won Best Picture at the 58th Academy Awards. Paramount Pictures releases Top Gun. Five million people used Hands Across America to fight hunger & homelessness. The New York Mets won 4 games to 3 in the 1986 World Series against the Boston Red Sox. Lady Gaga was born. L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology died. And so did Cary Grant. Robert Palmer told us, "you might as well face it, you're addicted to love." Ferris Bueller took a day off. Da Bears won the Super Bowl. Banarama was your Venus and your fire and Huey Lewis and the News were happy to be stuck with you. We met Julia and Suzanne Sugarbaker in Designing Women. And we found what we all want, A Room with a View.
What was life like for you that year?
That year, I graduated from college with a bachelor's degree in psychology and started grad school with a major in counseling. I remember that the highlight of my weeks that fall were Saturday mornings, because I could sleep in and then make myself pancakes and bacon for breakfast.
And I was a definite Cyndi Lauper fan, but back then, I spent a lot of time listening to the Christian contemporary radio station, so it took a while for True Colors to get my attention. Which is funny because these days, it sometimes feels like a theme song for the work I do as a color analyst.
Do You Know Your True Colors?
I mentioned that True Colors feels like a theme song in some ways, because with color analysis that's really what I do - I help women find their true colors.
Your true colors are the set of colors that resonate most and harmonize best with your coloring. And I recommend waiting to get dressed until you know what they are. :)
Why is it so important?
Because if you don't know what they are, then you aren't telling the whole truth about yourself when you get dressed.
And that may create a subtle disconnect with the people you encounter. They will see you and something will be off, though they may not be able to identify what it is.
In contrast, your true colors help you tell the story of who you are, and make you more beautiful with them than you could ever be without them.
When you're ready to find your true colors, take the color analysis quiz.
See you tomorrow!
My mission is to help you discover, embrace and celebrate your own beauty and style.
Thanks for dropping by! I'll see you soon.
