When I was a little girl, I dressed up as Smurfette for Halloween one year. Unfortunately, I don’t have access to the photographic evidence, so you’ll just have to trust me that I was the cutest Smurfette on the block. It certainly helped that I was only six or so.
Fastforward thirty years (and LOTS of added lbs.) and the idea of dressing in head to toe blue does not sound quite as “cute”.
When I decided to give this monochromatic thing a go, there were certain colors I thought I should stay away from. All yellow would make me look like the sun, all purple = Barney the Dinosaur and head-to-toe red on a girl my size would undoubtedly have people mistaking me for the Kool-aid man.
Besides, I don’t have that much yellow, purple or red in my closet.
What I do have is blue. A LOT of blue.
So, at the risk of looking like a bloated Smurfette, I sported an entire outfit of indigo today and guess what.
It was a hit.
I liked it, my coworkers liked it, my Instagram followers liked it. Heck, even a delivery guy commented on how nice I looked and asked if I had a date later. (Today’s awkward moment brought to you by FedEx.)
Either this monochromatic thing is working or people just really have a soft spot in their heart for Smurfette!
