Evanna Lynch

I briefly featured actress Evanna Lynch in my Harry Potter post a while back. Let’s take a more in-depth look at her today.

Evanna in Spring: pink. Evanna looks a pasty mess with the pink, and the red lipstick, and dark auburn hair. Her Summer essence has been extinguished here.

Evanna in Summer: light blue, white. Evanna looks ethereal in these colors. Yes!

Evanna in Autumn: burgundy, leopard. In the burgundy, Evanna looks ghostly. The leopard and the auburn hair make her look plain. Blah.

Evanna in Winter: black, blues, red. Black generally does nothing for Summers. The vibrant blues look great on Evanna and fit in well with her Summer season. The red is just like the black; it does nothing for her and overpowers her look.

Evanna in Auburn Hair: As I said yesterday in the Cameron Diaz post, don’t do this. Summers need to ignore the phone call that says go dark. They also need to ignore any red hair dye phone calls, as tempting as they are. Don’t do it.

See the difference?

Autumn Colors/Patterns: Leopard Print!

I entered a giveaway for a leopard-print rug and won a couple of weeks ago, which inspired me to do a leopard-print post while it’s still technically autumn.

I love, love, love leopard-print. Some say it’s trendy, but most agree it’s a classic. Sure, there are several ways to tacky it up with leopard, but done right it’s cozy, sensual, sassy, and glamorous.

Leopard-print is perfect for autumns (and even springs). Use this print however you want, just don’t do too much. If you’re wearing a top, temper the bottom with a solid basic color and vice versa. Same if you’re doing a leopard coat. For summers and winters who want in on the leopard action, keep it to an accent piece–a clutch, or pumps or booties. I have seen leopard print work with other patterns, various colors but you have to be confident and have a keen eye to pull it off. I love a bold red lip with leopard but I also love plum or blue with leopard as well.

Leopard-print is also a warm, cozy addition to your home in the colder months. Toss in some pillows, a throw, a rug, etc. Enjoy!
