At last the leaves of upstate NY have begun to peak in their color...such a glorious time of year!
Which has me thinking about color and clothes. I've become aware that one of the things draws me toward others, that I find appealing is the colors they choose in their clothes. I long realized that the obese me never cared much for color...the more drab the better as far as clothes were concerned...let me fade into the background as much as possible!
Now, however, one of the not-so-little ways that I celebrate my weight loss is that I gravitate toward color and as much as possible attempt to bring a splash of color to the clothes I choose. Instead of picking the same or similar colors in my slacks and shirt, I'll pick contrasting, yet complementary colors that I believe are more striking and pleasing to the eye.
Maybe it's paid off, my off and on eves-droppng when my wife watched "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy"? or "What Not To Wear?" :-)
