This week’s FBFF questions are all about COLOR, which is a rough topic when your day job requires you to blend in. Still, I’m happy to take part the conversation. Now, I’m off to read other’s posts and get some color-spiration.
1. What color dominates your closet?
Black and grey, I know, it’s so sad! But those are the colors that work best for interpreting, and after you hit a critical mass of black clothes, it’s easier to just stick with it. I sometimes try to mix it up with some bright shoes or a colorful bag, but this winter it’s been mostly black on black on black with a little splash of grey for good measure.
2. If money weren’t an issue how would you change the color emphasis in your closet?
When I first started interpreting the rule was ‘interpreters wear black’, now we’re more flexable with colors, but I already have so much of my wardrobe built, it’d be too expensive to start over. If money weren’t an object, I’d start over with a variety of dark, rich hues that are interpreter appropriate. The very first thing I would buy is some of the brillant royal peacock blue that caught my eye a couple seasons ago, I loved that color from the moment I set eyes on it.
3. What is your mantra about mixing colors?
I used to only put one colored piece with a neutral base, but I’ve been so inspired by all the fashion bloggers out there that I want to try mixing more colors together. And Mondo from Project Runway made me want to add some colorful patterns into the mix.
4. For you, how do you incorporate color into your outfits?
I guess I sort of answered this in question one – I usually have all black or a mix of black and grey and add my color through accessories.
5. Which blogger(s) do you think do a good job of incorporating color into their wardrobe?
Adored Austin and A Working Mom’s Closet are color goddesses!
