welcomed by President Judith Walker who informed us of several
events happening in the future. The following evening was to
be a group meeting in Hatton Park village hall with Charles
Hanson of Bargain Hunt from BBC2. Coming up are an afternoon
tea at a local hotel and a Christmas supper in December. Pauline
Brace is giving a series of lectures about Thomas Hardy and
Ann Farr is doing a workshop for Christmas tree boxes. Warwickshire
WI are holding their own Olympics next summer!
The speaker for the evening was Cat McFadyen. After 20 years
in the Insurance industry Cat became an image consultant with
"Colour me Beautiful". Cat was dressed in a colourful
outfit of red and green, but, as she explained, with her shade
of auburn hair the reds and greens were warm shades rather than
Cat emphasised that body shape and size does not matter. To
feel well dressed you need to select the right colours, suitable
styles for your shape and personality and current fashion appropriate
to your lifestyle. She then outlined various colour types and
appropriate use of colour. A fair haired fair skinned person
would look best in pale colours. Someone with dark colouring
should wear strong colours, and, according to Cat , this is
the only type who can successfully wear black. A red head looks
best in warm colours.
After her talk Cat gave various members a face makeup and recommended
the best type of cosmetics for them. Cat McFadyen gives individual
consultations but after her talk we will all be a little more
conscious of what we are wearing.
The next meeting on November 9th is the Annual Meeting after
which there will be a quiz.
