Vintage Memo 102 - Go Anywhere Dress & Color Analysis

9.29.2014








I love everything about this vintage dress with its knit polyester material and vivid red, white and blue graphic pattern design.  It's not a LBD, however it's simplicity in design definitely makes it very characteristic of the LBD.  Wears easy and travels just as well...a definite plus that answers the "What do I wear" question that's comfortably exciting without going over the top. 


Tips For Presenting Your Best You
Many vintage wears have such exciting colors...color combinations that many times are hard to find in simplistic modern design at affordable price points.  It's a really good idea to identify color that looks well with skin tone.  For example...It's funny how noticeable the color red is.  Doesn't matter if you are cool or warm skin tone, you can find a red that goes great with your skin.  There are a host of ways to identify skin tone.  However one quick tip is to look at the color of your viens on your wrists in natural light.  If your viens are bluish in color, then chances are you are a cool skin tone.  If your viens are greenish in color then chances are you are a warm skin tone.  Based on this analysis, you would choose colors that match your skin tone when selecting your OOTD.  If you fall within the cool category, then select a red that has bluish under tones instead of a red with an orange under tone for the warm category.
