    Spectacular post ladies. I have listened to the Summer section for a second time, and will probably listen again tomorrow. So many tidbits of information to absorb. Loved it.

  2. Gitte says:

    A few episodes ago was the ‘seasonal stereotypes’ episode, wondering at some point what the stereotypes are –

    Well, this episode is full of them. It was disappointingly little about actual color and supposedly much about “this season looks good in this totally not color-related style and vibe”

    what’s a natural light summer to do? A dramatic light spring? A romantic bright winter? a ingenue dark autumn? a gamine soft summer?

    • Christine Scaman says:

      I see your point, Gitte. Each of the categories you mention could occupy an hour’s conversation on their own and we hoped this episode (almost 2 hours long) might offer inspiration that all types could apply in some form. Sorry to hear that this one wasn’t for you.

    This was my favorite episode yet. I listened twice and made a two page list of words y’all used for inspiration. When I was draped as a soft summer, despite seeing how the colors brought life to my eyes, I was so dissappointed in what I perceived to be baby colors for adults, so mumsy. Now after a few months of stretching into my colors (hello to my new fav, eucalyptus!), I’m looking for the kind of advice you gave here about how to capture and express my own character through the details of texture and jewelry and vibe. It helps me to feel like a fleshed out human, not just a flat image in a coloring book.

    I thought it was fun when you mentioned how to make a plain men’s t-shirt appropriate for a season. I think it might be fun to hear how all 12 seasons could do so.

    • Jorunn Hernes says:

      Hello and on behalf of Christine and myself, thank you so much for your comment! I’m impressed that you’re so thorough in your note-taking! And becoming a “fleshed out human”, what a wonderful expression. To me, that sounds like the long term goal of any personal colour analysis, growing into one’s Season, palette and essence like you’re describing here. And it does not happen over night. Sometimes it does take time and a little conscious effort to stretch into your colours, like you say. Good for you, and again thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts.
