Try It, You Never Know…

February 26, 2010

I was checking out at Macy’s yesterday when I commented to the cashier that I am stalking a yellow INC dress, just waiting for it to go on sale. She smiled and admitted when the color came in for the spring line she didn’t think it was going to sell. After all it’s a BRIGHT, awkward shade of yellow (it’s not as golden as the photo). To her surprise the color was flying off the racks.

We discussed how the color complemented various skin tones, even though you wouldn’t expect it. And it made me think. How many times do we not try something because we just KNOW it won’t work? And how many opportunities have we missed because we allowed our preconceived notions to rule?

It’s easier to make choices that aren’t risky, and you may be fine with the results. But amazing is known to come in a package that’s bright and awkward.
