Today, Glowing Color features Kit. Kit writes,

I just found your blog this morning and I am totally addicted already.  I have been on a quest for over a year hoping to identify my color.  I have “tried on” every season and still feel lost.  I’m getting older (will be 60 next month!) and I just can no longer see myself or identify what I look good in.  I need help!
 
I would be most interested in learning from you the services you offer and their rates.
 
Look forward to hearing from you.
 
Your new reader and fan,
Kit
About Kit: “I live in Los Angeles and have been married for over 20 years.  I love to draw and paint, read cookbooks and healthy living blogs.  I am mostly vegetarian but do enjoy occasional seafood and chicken.  My husband retires in less than three years and we will be moving from Los Angeles to a much smaller market.  We are both very excited about that and right now feel a little like we are living in limbo because we are ready for the next chapter in our lives but it isn’t quite time.”

In what color(s) do you feel sexy and/or beautiful? Navy or white.

Kit is a Winter. Kit has been favoring cooler colors in her wardrobe, particularly blue. She instinctively gravitated toward the colors in her season! She wrote about her hair color feeling off, which makes sense because it is a warm brown with golden highlights. She definitely needs to go cooler with her hair, which will also set off her gorgeous eyes.

Today Glowing Color features Stephanie. Stephanie writes,

Hello!

I am 38, born and raised in Olympia, WA. I was away for 5 years on active duty with the air force in Virginia, yet came back home to ply. I have 2 children, 11 and 2 both boys that keep me pretty busy, yet i still stay active with running and just started participating in the Spartan races with my oldest. I am a Judicial Educator with the state and a Knowledge Operations Manger with the Air Force. I came across your site today and am impressed with your analyses. What are your rates for consultation?

Here is Stephanie’s Color Interview:

What color(s) do you wear the most? black, grey, and blue

What color(s) do you wear the least? red and orange

In what color(s) do you feel sexy and/or beautiful? black

In what color(s) do you receive compliments? Can’t say about the color I receive compliments in…I mostly hear that I look tired.

Let’s look at Stephanie in cooler colors first.

Great photos, Stephanie! There’s a correlation between the fact that Stephanie hears she looks tired often, and her most common colors of black, grey, and blue. That’s because Stephanie is an Autumn. She needs to go deep into the boldest, most vibrant autumn hues and shy away from the duller tones and pastels.

Monie

Today I am featuring Monie Pony, my friend who blogs over at The Rich ‘Onica. Monie is another giveaway winner. Let’s get into her interview and photos.

What color do you wear the most? I have a lot of black and gray in my closet. A lot.

The color that I wear the least: Orange. I don’t own one orange thing. Really, who wears orange??? Wait! I did have an orange Lacoste polo once. That shit was AWFUL. I gave it to my sister.

What color do I feel sexy in: Hmmmm…I do love to wear a little black dress with a pair of killer heels. I think it’s more about the article of clothing than the color for me. If the outfit fits me well and I feel confident in it, I will automatically feel sexy. That doesn’t help, huh? LOL!

Color I get complimented in: When I wear blues, grays and greens I get the most compliments. I hear those colors make my eyes pop.

I have to say, Monie is one of the easiest analyses I have done. I met her in person back in May, and I noticed (without paying attention to the colors she was wearing) that she had a definite pink/rosy skin undertone. So when she won the giveaway, I already had my ideas about what season she was before she submitted any other photos.

You can notice the trend in Monie’s color choices in both her interview and the photo gallery. Only the last 2 photos are warm (and the red dress is closer to a warm/muted red than true red), and I had to hunt those down myself to include here for contrast. If you enlarge the photos of her in blue, gray, and green you can more clearly see the pink undertone she has and how those colors flatter her. Alternatively, you can see how the tan and yellow colors wash her out and make her look blah.

Monie is baffled about orange with good cause; orange would definitely NOT be her color. She loves and is complimented in blue, green, and gray which also have the added benefit of bringing out her Smoky Robinson eyes. Although black and gray is good for Monie, I suggest she also venture out into the world of color and add different blues and greens to her wardrobe, as well as other colors that I will include on her personalized color list and send to her. Monie is a Winter.
