Cheddar and Bluestone | Valentina Cirasola | Designer

Welcome to a new episode of Friday Fashion.
This week I participated in a fashion event, an evening of dining with women and a talk on Fashion Disrupters.
I arrived at the venue wearing the outfit in my photo and someone greeted me with a big: “Mercy, mercy, you are sooooo visible!!!”
Perhaps the organizers expected to see invisible people at this event……I don’t know but I was surprised by the welcoming comment.

I sat at the table for dinner and a woman looking at my outfit said: “You need to wear more colors”. We both laughed, I am sure she was joking.
Then I looked around at my table and I saw businesswomen and women entrepreneurs wearing nothing by black and grey. Very sad.

All the women at the event had some very interesting to say, but their faces looked like the light was turned off. Society judges with the eyes in the first 90 seconds of coming in contact with us. The outer shell is what society sees first, and forms an opinion based on the colors we wear and the way we dress. Unfortunately, that’s the way it is.
I wonder what the colors I wore conveyed to the audience that evening: frivolous, carefree, shallow, girlish, attention-grabber, feminine, social climber, fashion slave……

These are the colors of Fall 2019, cheddar and bluestone, the shoes carry the same colors with one band and heels in magenta as an accent.  Bluestone will show up in many collections this coming Fall.
Its profile is not pure, it is tinged slightly with a grey hue. Its character gives a sensation of calm and quiet. Its value is dull and that’s why it is called a muted color. I paired the bluestone colors with a cheddar lacy sweater (BTW, I crochet it) to enliven it with some light.
I am still wondering how I was soooo visible….. Ciao,
