Many of you have asked what I decided to do about The Dress. I was still unsure so I took my question to an expert — Shari Braendel, who I met at the She Speaks conference last summer. She gave me a color analysis when I was there, so I knew that she would have an opinion on this taupe color for me. This is what she said. I asked her permission to reprint her response.
You are a Clear.. which means bright colors and high contrast color combinations work best for you. Soooo, in saying this, the dress is gorgeous but to make it work you will need to add bright or deep BOLD accessories… long beads, scarf at neck, etc. Red or Black would be my suggestions to add with it… and yes, the black tights and boots would be great! love ya, Shari
So, given that bit of info, I had pretty much decided to get the dress, but I kept forgetting to order it. Then I got online this morning and found an email from Banana Republic in my inbox saying there are a bunch of new reductions, and The Dress is on sale! I wasted no time snatching it up since several sizes are already sold out.
Now I just have to find a chunky black necklace of some sort, and I’m all set! WOOT!!
