Focussing on an autumn wardrobe, which is in harmony with my haircolorAugust 24, 2014
With my new auburn hair, I like to focus on different colors in my makeup and my wardrobe. Colors that will suit my red locks best. I love harmony, so my wardrobe has colors that matched my platina hair wonderfully, but don't look so swell with my current hair color. I do have to add that I don't always think in this manner, cause sometimes when I see a dress that is just drop dead gorgeous, I buy it and my hair color (and usually wallet, too) is the last thing on earth I think of.
But where I would wear navy blues, emerald greens and burgundy hues in autumn and winter when I was a platinum blonde, I will now shift my color palette to more earthy tones like pumpkin, chestnut brown, dark browns, oxblood red, melon yellow, aubergine and terra cotta.
For autumn, I always like my lips a darker red. But I will go for ox blood red or burgundy and also dark or earthy-toned eyeshadows for these upcoming colder seasons. I think it will look beautiful with my dark red hair. I love the effect of oxblood red lips and nailpolish in combination with my super white skin; very sophisticated!
The intro photo with the ladies wearing gorgeous bygone era inspired fashion by fashion designer Lena Hoschek ( do have a look at the website cause it features the wonderful Idda van Munster ) is a real inspiration for my quest in collecting and investing in a autumm/winter wardrobe. Lena's autumn/winter fashion line of 2012/2013 (I am always behind with fashion) actually shows all that I am looking for, though I will be searching for original vintage.
