My Color Choices

Ì decorate in yellow and green because it makes me feel happy and peaceful. I like to wear red, purple, yellow, green and denim. I get tired of black. I also like to wear white with silver. lately I like to wear orange and pink too. Actually I prefer stronger colors but when I want to blend in I wear grey or brown.

i love bright colors

Neon colors are fun to wear, they are vibrant and make me feel on top of the world. I also love white it makes me feel centered. Navy blue makes me feel empowered. But I feel comfy and laid back when I wear green.

I wear colors that match my mood

I choose colors which feel good at a particular moment. Lately, its usually a dark color like navy, deep red wine or olive green. I feel out of sorts in hastily selected tops.

complexion

In reading thse responses, I see nothing about complexion. I have olive skin and anything with yellow in it makes me look sallow. I can wear green if it is a forest green. I never wear orange, coral or yellow. I look much better in lavenders, blues and purples. I feel better in them as I look better in them. I am beginning to wear grays as my hair becomes more gray.

Colors in my life :)

Colors are very important to me! I wear red to feel energized and strong, dark blue for feeling centered, black for connecting with my inner power and spontaneity... But, color combinations are also essential. I like red and yellow. black and denim, orange and red (and yellow:) )...

Orange is fun

I wear a lot of orange because it's fun and makes me feel happy. Even my car is orange, and it makes people smile.

Pink or baby pink is very soothing!

Pink is my favorite wayback to my childhood that even during my wedding.. pink is my color motif. Then it evolves to red, the love, and all colors that most of the time black has become beautiful too:) rainbow color ..bring so much hope!

Black is my Shade

I wear black all the time. It really feels like my color, and I normally don't prefer to wear anything else. I like to see black as the "ultimate color". It's all the colors mixed together perfectly with no white. Although I got to admit, I wish my hair was white so it would look a little better on me. Oh well.

I wear red...

To transcend from anger to personal power. That and I just look good in it.

Purple warms my soul

Pulling purple over my head, feeling a soft comfortable fabric, then relaxing into the royal shade helps me to remember to be grateful. Purple is spiritual, powerful and relaxing. I am grateful my closet is full of purple, nestled in black and oranges, with a bit of red to boot!!! Cheers

Why I Love Wearing Black

Black empowers me. Wearing black makes me feel dressed up. I love wearing black ties with all black clothing. I stand out in a crowd as someone that is proud who they are. Even if I am in black jeans, with a black t-shirt and all black Converse, I still look dressed up for an event. Oh, and let us not forget the black shades to go with the outfit.

Colors

I am learning about my divine colors from a hypnotist. Yellow is my color, I am picturing it after using the zen breathing tecnique. It is healing my negative emotions.

black

I choose black as my color chose because it is beautiful.
—Guest kenia

my color chioce

Green, yellow, and red shades are my favourites. Many times I prefer brown with earthly shades. I have an aversion for black and blue cause blue does not suit me. I have experienced that whenever I wore blue i had a very rough day. So there is no blue or black in my wardrobe.
