I understand that colors are a tricky business. I often get comments (IRL) that I wear colors. Women (98%) sometimes sound a bit accusing but more often slightly envious. And as a rule assume that I combine my clothing to get attention.
Fact is, I get a kick out of colors and I think most people do. I'm always happy and proud to hear that I inspire or brighten someone's day. But I never plan my clothes to impress and I never consider what people might say.
This post is a result of what a woman I met through work today, said to me.
"You certainly want to get noticed, don't you. I guess if I got up half an hour earlier I could get attention too."
I was quiet. L'esprit d'escalier, if you like. This is a nice person that I trusted but obviously she thinks I'm shallow and and a show-off. I'm still wondering what I should've said.
