Just Curious...


I used to wear silver ALL the time. Loved it. BUT, I am all of a sudden into gold...
There is a lady in our ward that does the color code to tell you what color of clothing you should wear. She also tells you if you should wear gold or silver jewelry... she says that I am "warm" and should wear gold. (I did this about a year ago and didn't change... BUT, then I saw this gold earrings on a good friend, they looked SO good, matched her hair color and skin color so nicely, so, I went and bought some gold hoops, LOL) Have you ever had the "color code" done? Do you know what colors you "should" wear? Do you like Silver or gold better? WHY? Just curious...

I never wear anything. I am jewelry free.

Gold or silver honestly would look good on you. But I can see where the gold would make you zingers. That means radiate more than you already do :)

I've had it done, but can't remember. I actually like two toned stuff!

KC Mom said...

I've never had color coding done before but I do match my gold or silver jewelry based on whether or not my outfit is warm or cold. Warm is gold, cold is silver. I think I change between warm and cools so I can't really go one or the other with my jewelry so I just try to stay in with the outfit. Does this make sense? Ha!

Pedaling said...

i wear both.
sometimes i even mix them a little gold and a little silver worn at the same time.
i don't even care.
sometimes i wear open toe shoes in january.
sometimes i wear white in the winter.
sometimes i wear all brown with black boots.
see, i am free!
the older i get the more free i am and the more i just don't even care!
i think more people should be like me in every way. (sarcasm)

I used to wear gold all the time back in the 80's & 90's. But then I couldn't afford it anymore & started buying Silver. Now I wear whatever..
No I can't remember having a color code done.
You look good in either.. Of course!

I had it done and when I was a bleached blond and I was supposed to wear silver. Now that I am back to my natural warm color I am and should wear Gold.
So basically I wear what ever I am in the mood to and what goes with the outfit!:-)

I noticed you commented on Lonna's blog about our YSA snow tubing! It turned out great. Did you see her daughter, the blond...She is as wonderful inside as she is gorgeous outside. I would love to set Dallin up with her at one of our YSA activities when he comes North!:)

Good luck tonight.

I've never had the color code done.

I always used to wear only gold -but it seems like silver became more popular in the last 7? 8? years so I have worn both.

When my husband buys me jewelry he often buys me white gold now - best of both worlds I guess :D

Oh and Shaila for the "cute quote" just copy it off my blog. Save it as a picture and then add it to your blog. That's how I got it from a friends blog.

I've had the color thing done...but they didn't tell me about the jewelry...that's interesting. I hope I'm a gold person since that's mostly what I own.

Motherboard said...

I have never even heard of that.

But, I like two toned stuff... just sort of goes with everything.

wilma said...

Had it done several years ago and I am winter or spring...I believe that is cool. It also depends if I have a tan or not...whether summer or winter. I can wear white in the summer when I am tan but look terrible without a tan in the winter when I wear white. I wear both gold and silver. I think they said I should wear silver but don't remember. I do remember taking a lovely silver, black and crystal necklace off you neck last summer and I love to wear it. LOL

I normally wear silver but I would love to have the color code done. I think gold is the trend right now. For some time everyone was wearing silver. Once I started wearing silver the trend changed to gold. :-)

tammy said...

I'm laughing at Pedaling's comment.

I am a silver girl. And the more bling the better!

Tanja said...

i wear silver. I love the way it looks and shines. i think it goes better with my coloring but i have never had the "color" test done, maybe i should but i am pretty sure i wouldn't change it.

i think you could get away with both.

Pedaling....I ♥ your attitude!

rad6 said...

ok, I go back and forth... I love both. depends on the day. My wedding ring is gold, but at Nordstrom Rack you can get a beautiful FAKE white gold or silver ring for $12.00. I wear mine all the time. People always compliment it, I usually just say thanks. FUN! BTW, I really like jewelry. The Book of Mormon prophets were very worried about people like me. Uh-oh!

Rachel said...

Oooo! Where do you have the color code done? I want to know mine! I always and *ONLY* wear silver! I think it's the anti-80's chick in me that is rebelling against gold because it reminds me of the 80's, haha!

SwainstonFam said...

I had it done along time ago... my sister use to do it. I was the periwinkle color and something else that I don't remember. But periwinkle looked best on me... I like silver... but I also like the silver and gold mixed (but I am very picky what it is on). I don't remember if she told me if I am gold or silver. But I am thinking it would be silver...

Jodi said...

I always wear silver because it seems to be more in right now. I never really thought about the coloring thing, but I am probably supposed to be gold too because we have the same coloring. Hmm..

Right now I like silver better! Well...unless it was the real stuff and then GOLD for sure!!! lol

wonder woman said...

I used to only like silver, too. Then I got a gold wedding ring, and I opened up a bit. Now, I try to match the jewelry to what I'm wearing. Earth tones get gold, and cooler or brighter colors get silver. Casual is silver hoops. (I *always* wear earrings; I feel like they bring out my eyes.)

I've never had the color coding thing done. I have lots of red in my face, and gold hair, so gold would probably be better for me, but silver shows up more since it contrasts.

McEwens said...

Hard to imagine you without your silver.....

I guess I should put away all my silver too

Melissa said...

I had the color test done many many years ago and I was a "Summer" and I was told that my best color to wear was pink:) Which was good when I was a teenager but I don't wear pink very often anymore except to sleep in:) That is interesting though because I didn't know that it applied to jewelry too.

LittlePeopleWealth said...

Hmm, I'm not sure - I like the silver stuff but now I want to know which one looks better!

I gave you the Kreativ Blogger award at littlepeoplewealth.com :-) Feel free to pass it along!

Mother Goose said...

basically, i am jewelry free but I used to wear a lot of both. I don't let people tell me what i can and can't wear. LOL

seriously, I can wear anything. or nothing.

I think you could also. I see where you could be a cool. meaning darker colors. or even an autumn (warm) colors.

k, so as long as your going solid gold on us. I got dibs on the watch!

Mechelle said...

I have never had the color code done. I should. I was into gold but now I like silver. m

Ashley said...

I definitely like silver better. I've had the color coding done before, when I was a teenager, and it said I was a cool tone and should wear silver. But I wish I could pull off gold, because some gold jewelry is totally fab!
