The back of the issue featured a color personality test -- a series of questions with no right or wrong answers that is designed to get you thinking about what colors you naturally gravitate towards. Earlier this week, Things That Inspire did a lovely post with her answers to the quiz and I thought I might follow suit today with my own thoughts on the matter. As longtime readers know, I'm a huge fan of bold colors, so I suspect the following answers won't be much of a revelation.

What color do you wear the most? Navy.
What color do you never wear? Yellow.
What do you color do you wear when you want to feel confident? Hot pink, Kelly green or peacock blue.
What color gets you the most compliments? All of the above (which is why I wear them when I want to feel confident).
What color is your lipstick? I don't wear much lipstick -- I prefer gloss -- but when I do, it's a nude-ish pink. I’ve always tended to focus on playing up my eyes, so I tend to go for a more natural looking lipcolor.
What color was your living room growing up? Walls were beige, but I remember a lot of red in the furniture, draperies, rug etc.
What color was your bedroom growing up? Pink and white.

What color are your sheets? Ivory.

What color was favorite crayon as a child? Blue-green.
What color is your car? Dark gray. What color makes you happiest? Teal, aubergine – jewel tones. What color calms you? Blues generally, but especially a light blue. It’s like a cool neutral – you can put anything with it, but even on its own, it can be very refreshing.

What color makes you grind your teeth? Burnt Orange -- and I even went to UT for law school!
What color would you like to try, but are scared to? I’m pretty fearless when it comes to color – both in fashion and design, but I suppose I’d have to say white. It’s the absence of color that gets me nervous, but I do think there’s something beautiful and pristine about a lovely white suit (or better yet – a white tuxedo on a woman!) or an all-white bedroom!
