“I wanted to dress more creatively,” she said. “If you want people to follow you on an adventure, a black suit’s not going to cut it.” - Umber Ahmad
This quote jumped off the pages of "O" Magazine's May issue. The feature is titled, “New Life, New Look” and introduces us to five women who have been through recent personal makeovers. Ahmad has gone from the dark suits of Wall Street, to the fun of children’s programming and opening a bakery....and, I love her quote!!
Now, I am not anti-black in any wardrobe, but color gives us all a joyful way to mix things up! I do not believe that there is any profession any longer where a ban on color is the rule….if you are surrounded by dark suits, maybe it is time to be more visible, and shake things up a bit!!
Spring and Summer give us all great excuses to shine bright. If you would like more ideas, just go to visit the ladies of VISIBLE MONDAY!! and MONDAY MINGLE!!….also, “O” Magazine’s theme this month is HOW TO GET BETTER WITH AGE….you might want to pick up a copy of this as well!!
Anyone up for an adventure??
