WIW: Chartreuse with the new hair

I wore bright colors to set off the new hair yesterday - a new chartreuse split sweater with navy.  I added in a blue scarf for softness.  I liked the color combo, even though chartreuse has never been a great color for me.

    AWESOME: silhouette, color, styling, proportions,scarf, overall flair...and how it all plays with your fab hair! And specs, I should add.

    Fire! I love the vivid color and cut. the colors you chose set the new hair off. I am a short free are you wearing boots or shoes.

    Great look!  I like the blue scarf with the chartreuse as well.  I think your new hair looks really good in these pics.

    Thanks Mochi and Ledonna.

    The shoes are actually sandals - they are open back with a mary-jane strap, but closed toes.  They'll be my "nude" sandals for summer.

    Love the new hair, it is fantastic!  The chartreuse sweater accents it very nicely, and the whole out is fab.

    Looks great! Love that color sweater and the hair is really cute.

    I really like your new cut - and do agree with your husb that you could go even shorter on the longer side.  The sharp asymmetry is good with your softer features, and looks great in this colour too >

    WOW.....love the hair...the color with the glasses, Fab! the asymmetrical cut, with it's retro feel, but is so totally current, outstanding!

    Yes!  Chartreuse and other acidy colors will be your friend with this hair.

    Amy I didn't get a chance to comment on your other hair thread, but the new 'do looks super. I like the more extreme contrasting length between the two sides, as you have it now. Looks very purposeful and adds some lovely and interesting eye lines (i.e., it draws my eye across your entire face which I really like). Especially liking how the more "severe" cut looks paired with the soft glasses and make up, particularly the pink lippie. Hope you're able to adjust to it! I totally understand feeling off or unsettled in a hair style that others think looks great; sometimes we adjust and sometimes we don't. Give it a month or two, but if you still feel off after that it's worth changing to something that you'll feel more fab in.

    Your hair looks so, so, so good!

    Hair looks great! Your skin and eyes just glow with this combination.

    Great hair, specs, and fun bright colors! But best of all, that smile!

  • SarahTheWhite replied 4 years ago

    I think this color looks fantastic with your hair (which I still love by the way!).

    Hip new cut! Excellent lipstick.

  • amiable replied 4 years ago

    You know Rachy, the lighting does weird things to my lips every time.  I'm just wearing chap stick (cherry flavor).  I swear my camera turns my lips weird shades.  But I'm glad it looks good :)
