THE NEW HAPPINESS PROJECT: COLOUR SHOCKING

COLOUR SHOCKING
photo

The purest and most thoughtful minds are those which love colour the most.


I have a marvelous capacity for misery and happiness for colours through colours. I have always colour-blocked all my life way before I even knew that I was “colour-blocking”. Colour blocking is an outfit made up of ‘blocks’ of solid colours. I got bored over the fact that it became a fashion “trend” while it meant so much more for me.2 years ago, I got a little edgier and invented my own kind, with a little sense of humor- colour shocking. Colour shocking is an outfit made up of 1 solid colour and/or its shades from head to toe.

I have shown all of my colors but my favorite. Most people do not like to reveal themselves in colour, they tend to play it safe and cover their feelings with only the blacks and whites but beneath the constant monochrome sits a myriad of sherbet hues in them. Anyways, Mustard-Yellow have always been my favourite. I love to seek solace in it when the world isn’t giving face. My grandmother once told me it stands for the sun- sunshine and I have always loved it…
