Oh yes, I am totally pumped about introducing my first colour combination for Spring 2017!!
Every season I think, hasn’t every variation of the multi colour combination been done? It’s been 16 years of glamjulz! Every season I proudly prove myself WRONG!
Speaking of proud, this colour combination is inspired by just that, pride! Pride in who we are, not only as individuals but as a society.
George Michael was the inspiration for this colour palette.
Losing George Michael on Christmas day was heartbreaking. George was one of the highlights of my teen years and my early 20’s. Of course, I never knew George personally but I always felt something. I could feel his sadness, his struggle with the chubby little boy inside and coming to terms with his sexuality, losing his first true love to aids, and the death of his mother when she was only 60 years old.
A mountain of challenges all piled on to one person.
Despite his internal suffering George had a way of injecting happiness into the lives of others.
He was grateful and loving towards his fans. He had such a polite demeanor. He was able to relate to all people. The music he created with Andrew Ridgeley when they were Wham and his solo work is magical. Whenever I play that music, I am taken to a place where I can escape from whatever is troubling me. I feel like I want to throw a party, run away to the beach, or create something new and exciting in my life.
This colour combination was created for you to burst out of your day to day self and re-invent yourself.
Join a new group, travel somewhere you have never been, commit to projecting your happiness outwards for everyone to enjoy!
I know that when George Michael entered a room he lit that room up and left people better than the way he found them.
I think this is a valuable lesson for all of us. We have the power to smile at someone, give them a hug, tell them a funny story, be happy and encouraging in their presence. These are the gifts that give back to humanity. Do this for someone else and it becomes contagious.
When I release this colour combination (coming soon!) wear it with PRIDE and remember that YOU have the power to change a person’s day!
Be the magic.
*Please leave a comment, I’d love to know what your sweet memories of George Michael are and/or how you put a smile on someone’s face and changed their day*
