I wouldn't be able to do it, my closet is full of neutrals. I love white, grey and black all equally.. and I like some colour here and there, too.

I color them blue with custom-ordered electric-blue Sharpies.
You can custom-order Sharpies? I had no idea. But is it really necessary? I mean, I think the regular old blue shade will do the job almost as well.

These people are just plain weird. Everything looks so forced, and I'm guessing that it is.

I could never stick to just one color in my wardrobe - even black, although it would be much easier. I would be so sick of that color within two months that it would probably take me two years just to wear it again.

I wonder how many of these people actually stick to their chosen color? The blue girl had some silver bags I noticed.

I don't think I could, but if I was like, forced at gunpoint, I'd have to say blue.

If I were forced to I could maybe try red (my favourite colour)...but I don't know if I could find enough red clothes to live in, lol.

I'm gonna add black and red to my two colour combinations on the previous page. It's a good combination.

I'm actually going to give an actual answer because it's kind of fun to try to to figure out what one color I would wear. If I really had to, I'm going to say emerald green. But I would probably change my mind and then pick another color.

I LOVED this article, still I find it a little intimidation in what kind of consequence they follow their "dogma"

I'm glad to see so many people found it as interesting as I did. I think the idea of creating a uniform for yourself is a true test to your uniqueness. These people seem to thrive on consistency. I'm not sure what it brings to their everyday life, but obviously it's a security blanket, but also a statement of their identity.

I'd be interested to see any of us tFSer doing this, not on an everyday basis, but if every once in a while some of us wear solids. I know I do, but really only with gray or black. I'm not quite brave enough to do solids in any color.

that blue wardrobe looks so nauseating i think i would throw up if i had to spend so much as 1 minute in it..

but with that question 'does colour reflect personality', what would their colour choices say about them? that the brown man is old and boring? that the green lady is fun and child-like and perhaps resents growing up? (just some examples...) i mean it's like when you say people who wear lots of black are are 'interesting' people who are involved in creative professions such as design or acting.. it can tell u alot about a person and their mood i guess..

It works with black though.

that should have been the name of the article...
that 's awesome!...


:p

i love this article...
it's just so interesting to get into peoples' heads to know a bit about the decisions they make about how they choose to present themselves to the world...

i don't think i could do this because i think people would think i was a big fat weirdo......

but in high school i had a purple 'thing'...
my eyeglasses were a bluish purple...my carpet was a soft purple shag...
i even found a purple bra somehow...

one time a girl in high school challenged me to go for one day without wearing even ONE piece of purple...
so i thought- fine -easy- no problem...
what i forgot was that the hooded sweatshirt i had on over my whole outfit was sort of magenta-which she considered a shade of purple...
so i lost this bet...

...

*i tend to shy away from purple a bit now, due to that experience...
:p
