I was curious...going into fall what color trends would pop up...I am not in LA as much and am fearful that I may slip into an AllBlackEastCoastForMonths mentality. While I won't hold myself ridged to these statistics, and they are only from one spot on the Fashion Map, it is a nice little go to get color theraped...
