Me <–not a matchaholic. It would stress me out WAAAAY too much!!!

In real life I like things to look very put together. I’m super uptight about it. But for my wedding, i want "The look" but not the matchy matchy. 6 bridesmaids is too intense if they all match!

I’m wearing BROWN shoes and a BLACK sweater. Take that, matchaholics!! (Stacy London says it’s okay, so it must be!)

I’m the opposite! I like this to coordinate but really can’t stand a matchy matchy look. Everyone keeps asking what my color theme is for the wedding and I have to politely explain that while I’ll be having blue and champagne accents, I’m not looking for a whole matched look.

I am obsessive with our house matching… When we were renovating our bathroom, Mr. Dan bought BRONZE fixtures when everything else was chrome!

Major fight ensued.

Lori and I discussed this earlier – I am NOT a matchaholic as shown in my grey shoes/black belt/black handbag combo I’m rockin’ today.

In terms of house items– it should definitely match. When we re-did our house, we were careful to match the color of the doorknobs within t he rooms to the accessories- meaning brushed silver door handles to go with brushed silver bathroom faucets and toilet flushers. 🙂 And chrome with chrome and so on.

But in terms of clothes, I’m not too crazy about it. I’m a semi-matchaholic. Brown should always be worn with blue, not black. And gray should go with black. I wear a brown belt with brown shoes, and a black belt with black shoes. 

I try to coordinate as much as possible.

But my under-things don’t ever coordinate. And nor does my nail polish– I change my fingernail polish way more than my toenail polish. 🙂
