Drawing attention to yourself--or not
Okay, this one is for the ladies (I would be willing to bet!) but guys are welcome to read and smile.
There is a site I stumbled upon about Feng Shui Fashion. I am certainly no fashion diva, but this interested me because I am planning book signings for the future and am interested in whatever will be helpful. If you are planning this too, or maybe you are going to be on a panel at a conference, or a speaking engagement, this one will aid in how you select clothes for the occasion.
1. Wear red to attract attention to yourself. It is a well-known fact that wearing red is considered a power play. It says you are in charge and know your stuff.
2. Wear orange to promote unity, perhaps when on a panel and wishing people to understand that you are a team player. Don’t wear it when you wish to stand out from the others, however.
3. Wear yellow to bring clarity and brighten things up. It’s a sure fact that some people are tired and sleepy during long workshops, so yellow keeps things focused.
4. Wear green to exhibit intelligence as it is the color of growth and development. Great for workshops and teaching sessions
5. Wear blue to get people to become involved. It helps people stand up and speak their minds.
There are plenty of other colors listed if you are more interested in this Feng Shui approach to your apparel, and you can find it here:
