Changing it up today, here is my open letter to the color Mustard.
You and I have, historically, not been friends- hence, Mean Mr. Mustard. I’m sorry that I called you that name. I used to think you deserved it, but I can now see the error of my ways. It’s just that I thought you made my blonde hair look washed out. I also thought that your name sounded like a character from Clue and that you hung out in the library with a wrench. I’m sorry I judged you so wrong, and I really hope moving forward we can be friends. I think we are really coming along these days, and I think we have many more happy days together ahead. Please accept this apology for ruining your good name as a color.

Fashion Huntress tips:
1) I think my open letter here pretty much says it all about never saying never. I basically never used to wear yellow (mustard or otherwise), but I’ve found that no colors are really “off limits.” Admittedly, some shades of colors may look better than others, but don’t shy away from colors that you might otherwise skip over. I also tend not to wear straight line dresses because of my pear shape (I’m more of a fit and flare girl), but I’ve found that some actually do fit. If you like something, just try it on, regardless of shape or color! Worst case scenario, you end up not liking it. Best case scenario, you find a new love!
2) Based on my last couple of posts, it seems we can all agree that online shopping versus in-store shopping varies a lot by store. I found this particular dress online still listed for approximately $70, even though I found it in the store for $7. $7, you guys. If you have the time, check out the in-store sales and then compare the online sales. Generally, I find that the sales at Gap, Banana Republic, Ann Taylor Loft, and Old Navy all seem to be better in the store.
Anyone else have colors that they used to avoid but now wear?
I hope everyone is having a great weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by, readers! I appreciate it so much!
