The History of Black Friday

The popular definition of the origin of  “Black Friday” is as follows: Eager shoppers would flood local shops and malls the day after Thanksgiving, and that surge in spending was enough to put retailers “in the black” for the year. Therefore, the day following Thanksgiving was dubbed “Black Friday,” and it became the unofficial start of the holiday shopping season. There is however much more to the story, revealed in my interview with the Huffington Post:

Dressing to Meet the Parents

You have met the perfect someone, and it is now time to meet their parents. When dressing for this, or any important occasion it is important to remember the power of color.

In a situation like this it is important to appear friendly, open and most importantly, the perfect person for their child. While you may think classic dark colors are a perfectly neutral way to approach your outfit selection, I suggest that you steer clear of a dark neutral such as black or charcoal, as it conveys a sense of mystery, as if you may be concealing something. As for red: save your best shade for date night, as in this situation it may come off too aggressive or sexy. Instead, opt for your Energy Color. The Energy Color is the darkest color in your iris and is the one that really pops the eyes, keeping you feeling and appearing balanced, friendly and completely approachable. It is the color that is perfect to wear to meet new people in, and will convey the quintessential “I am a really nice person vibe.”
