Dress Adventure: Color Analysis

For Dress Adventure #23 we tried something completely new! Rebekah and Colleen met with consultant Christine Swartz from House of Colour in Loudoun and had a color consultation!

We spent an entire afternoon learning about which colors suit our skin tones best and which seasons we are. Rebekah is a winter (not what we thought!) and Colleen is a summer (also not what we thought!)

Christine is so kind, and she made the whole experience so much fun. Her studio was lovely and welcoming, and we just had the best time ever.

We learned so much! It’s amazing how different shades can make all the difference when it comes to looking exhausted or put together. It was surprising to learn that even our what color makeup we’re wearing can have a big effect on us. One extra thing that we were able to do was bring our VDDCo dresses and learn about which seasons (color scheme-wise) they are most compatible with. This will help us style them better and make us better informed as we design future dresses. ⁠

We’re not exactly throwing away our whole closets now, but have begun a journey to purchase clothes, accessories, nail polishes, and lip and eye colors even more thoughtfully than we were before.

If you’ve never had a consultation, we highly recommend! If you have, we’d love to know; what season are you?
