It was a treat for me to do a "surprise" color analysis for Donald Green for his 50th birthday several years ago. He was a good sport and went along for the ride and jumped enthusiastically into his Warm Autumn palette. Donald is a certified Podologist and runs a specialized European foot care center. I was amazed at his professionalism and attention to detail on my first visit. He and I share a similar exacting approach to our systems and methods and I appreciate the care he gives each and every client.
In the years since his color analysis he has incorporated his colors into his business branding and lifestyle.
After receiving a landmark birthday gift of a color analysis, I arrived at my appointment with enormous inquisitiveness. I was met at the door by Kerry with her now, infamous question: She asked, “You have NO idea why you are here, do you?” I nodded sheepishly as I looked around the room. I remember feeling dumbfounded as I saw makeup, accessories, and scarves of every imaginable color, not knowing what was to come.
As it turns out, meeting Kerry was a very positive and life altering 50th birthday gift experience and we have continued to keep in touch throughout these past years.
Since opening the foot care center in 2018, I took to the habit of wearing hospital scrubs --in my Warm Autumn colors, of course! I receive comments very often about how well I look, or have I lost weight?, or did I go on vacation?, etc.---It’s all about the colors you wear, who knew?! I have notice ways that I have bridged a gap between the colors that I wear, and the colors in my office and home. In fact, many clients just simply ask me to pick out their nail polish color choice with complete trust.
I find many of the Warm Autumn colors in my office and the logo for my business. I think that Kerry was pleased when she came to the office and saw the colors in the pallet that dressed the entire office space. Prior to a little coaching from her, I could not even think about arranging furniture properly let alone picking out matching colors. A little education goes a long long way!
I used to despise shopping for new clothes, and often wondered why certain articles that I purchased in the past would hang in the closet and never be worn. Now I buy with confidence! My favorite thing is the color swatches! I never leave home without them. In fact, I was introduced to two new colors that I did not even have in my wardrobe , turquoise (now my favorite) and coral! Who knew that wearing my new colors would be so revealing and help me set a style of my own, and allow me to look my best.

The past few months have been so rewarding helping clients purge their closets of items that may be their style but not in flattering colors. So many of us are ready for a simple, streamlined wardrobe where everything in it feels like a YES!
Some really motivated clients wanted to edit their closets and were happy for Indigo Tones to help them find a good home for some of their favored items.
As soon as the clothing exchange got started it was amazing how excited everyone was to purge and donate pieces that were not right for them. A big motivator was knowing that they would go to the right person who shared the same size style and was just as eager to find the items in their own colors and lovingly wear them!
Everyone in the clothing exchange had a blast and continues to enjoy curating their closet to be a unique expression of their coloring and personality.
Enjoy the pics of the exchanges!

It is my great pleasure to introduce Dark Autumn, Joan Lincoln - Rochester, NY's fashion and beauty icon for decades! She lives life with style & flair and a never ending enthusiasm for connecting and collaborating with local businesses and charitable organizations. Her entrepreneurial spirit and business acumen belie a family oriented local girl sensibility and humanity that she brings to her business ventures.
I have collaborated with Joan for years. In the decades since I opened my first studio in Pittsford, NY around the corner from a fabulous boutique she managed, she has become Rochester's leader on all things involving fashion and style.
We share a passion for empowering women to be their best by making style affordable and accessible while lessening the impact of the fashion industry on the environment.

The last several months have been an absolute joy working with Warm Autumn Erin Sirianni to get her closet completely refreshed and full of items that she loves. She was very focused and determined to only have things that worked and the effort she made was worth it! She completely changed her hair, she passed along hundreds of items of clothing (see where some of them landed!), purged a huge percentage of her closet and shopped everywhere from the Indigo Tones resale shop to Panache Consignment to Goodwill to stores at the mall.
Erin is a Professional Development and Life Coach who gravitated to more structured, classic clothing as it felt the most professional but as we worked with her body shape and her personality we discovered she really likes a bit more drama and softer lines suit her shape.
