My name is Ash and although I have a 'style' blog (hollow laugh) I actually don't have much of a clue about style (or colour)!
Case in point - the interminable wardrobe sort-out continues (I doubt it will ever end actually - it's more of a journey through life) and here I am stumped on colours.
I need to ask you:
- do normal people have a rainbow of colours in their wardrobes - to which they (at point of purchase) were drawn, magpie like (and somehow make them work wonderfully together); or
- do normal people of my age know what suits them (how?) and stick only to those colours?
I like the grey/ beige / 'greige' / navy / camel / brown... but do they like me?
I've lost count of the number of times I've had a pink / red buying phase, decided later they didn't work, ebayed them (at loss), carried on happily in neutrals for a while, become bored with them, seen something pink again, bought it... and the cycle continues. I guess it doesn't help that I spend a fair amount of time dressed as a giant bumble bee.
As you will see from the photos below my clothes seem to be divided into two camps:
- Pink / red / coral; and
- The above mentioned 'greige' / navy. Both work in their own groups but never the twain shall meet - (red and taupe anyone, eww?!)
Anyhow, as you will probably have worked out by now if you have read any other posts, my purpose for being here is not so much to inform anyone else, but to discover what on earth I should wear!!
PS - Both White Company dresses from the other day returned to be exchanged for a cashmere poncho instead (taupe). I am fickle as well as clueless :-)
