The Politics of Color

14 July 2004

Well, suddenly I find the reason that I haven’t seen my favorite colors in stores in a while is simple: we’re in an economic downturn. Gosh, having my favorite color available to purchase would have made me feel better about being destitute. Honest.

In fashion terms, I’m boring: I like navy and bright teal. I also like bright mid-tones. I hate black, brown (neither of which I’ll wear without lots of good reasons, like it being on a Clarion T-shirt).

I’ll suffer with red, if I must, as in my briefcase:

But I’m not a happy camper without my bright cool colors.
