I thought this would be hard
Today I'm orange, tomorrow I'm yellow. I purchased the shirt I'm wearing from ebay. I thought when I got it that it was too short. But you never know about proportions till you try things on. It turns out that it works and is terrifically comfortable. I hadn't worn it yet and the challenge is a great way to get it on me. Anyway, I have decided if it were not for the internet I'd be severely underdressed. The pants are HSN and the shoes were a recent bargain on ebay. The bracelets- orange-off price store. Tan-I made them. The earrings are Avon.
A word about ebay. When I first started on ebay, I was buying a lot of purses. I got some shoes and liked them a lot. I bought jewelry and jewelry makings. I got a bunch of stuff I didn't need and I paid way too much. I didn't look at ebay as a thrifty way to do stuff. Anyway, now I limit the amount I am willing to pay and that way I don't look at stuff that would cost too much. I won't buy anything that the shipping is too high. And I try to be much more careful to get only the things I can use with what I have. And very soon ebay will be where I sell things I made mistakes on or no longer need or want.
The color challenge has already helped me look at my wardrobe differently. I know you can pair almost any color with black. I want to put the things into different settings and see what happens. This is fun.
