Good Girls Don't Have to Dress Bad...

I saw this book recommended somewhere and I don't remember where. I decided to buy it and I have to say it is really good! The Author Shari Braendel teaches you about body type and dressing for your type. She also teaches about dressing for your color type... Since I am already a fan of Color Me Beautiful this was right up my alley. The book is an easy read and she gives a lot of good advice. I have ordered color swatches from her website. They are on a key ring and it will make it super simple to shop for my self. You can take a free color analysis test on her website and she helps you figure out what colors are best for you. This is a direct link to her sight. When you order the color swatch you have the option of sending your picture in so she can make sure you have chosen correctly.

I have been at work getting rid of some clothes that I know do not look good on me. Also I have been busy looking for accessories. She says it is very important to do this. I already love junk I mean costume jewelry so this is the direction I am going in. This bracelet set my friend Heather gave me...right off of her own wrist. I told her I liked it and she insisted I take it....wasn't that sweet? 

I found this Betsey Johnson bracelet at Plato's Closet. That is a consignment shop that is very popular here in Florida.

This little set came from Kohl's. I like the funky colors and I thought it would work as a pop of color.

I love this simple necklace. It also came from Plato's. This is the way to buy jewelry...because it is a fraction of the cost of new.

Lastly is the beautiful blouse and bracelet I got guessed it Plato's. It is really hard for me to give up the spring colors for my self. They are so beautiful to me. I am thankful I can where white and off white...(they are in my color palate)  Because I have been having so much fun with this I thought I would share all of this info with all of you lovelies.  I will show you my progress in another post soon. I am waiting on my color swatches and then I will be clearing out and reevaluating.
Until Next Time,
Amy Jo

  2. Amy Joe, isn't that fun. I did it a long time ago and found I was more on the autumn side. Lots of rich, bright colors which I love. I should wear gold jewelry but I can't afford it and I have an allergy to metal so can't wear alot of costume (which I love too) so I stick to sterling silver. It is a fun thing to keep track of though. Thanks for your sweet words to me..Happy Thursday..Judy

  3. I'm a Summer under Color Me Beautiful ... your post brought back memories of the day a whole group of friends got together to have our colors analyzed. I found out that I was wearing the wrong colors but my house was decorated in the right hues! Thanks for leaving a comment on my Barbie post.


  4. I'm a dark winter. I have the colours on my phone to remind myself if I get distracted by something pretty but summer or spring when I'm out shopping. :)

    That blouse is really cute. I can see why you're taken by it. :)

  5. I'm going to look for that book. I've noticed colors look different on me now that I've gone silver! lol And I love pretty jewelry. I think there is a Plato's here but I'll have to see if I can get the address! Enjoy your day! Hugs!

  6. I have the book Color me beautiful, too. I did the test and I'm a cool. I need to get my old book out and read some in it today! Thanks for the links! Hugs!


I love reading your comments......They mean so much to me!!!
