    Color is a pretty faniascting topic. I realized a few days ago when I was out with a beautiful blue velvet to match up, thinking it would be a 1,2,3 deal well ..2 hours later and hundreds of blues later, I realized color is a whole other world. How many whites are there? Like over 150 I believe! Its interesting to see the trends in colors too great post.
