Tools of the Trade #8: Creating Custom Palettes with the Kuler App

Tools of the Trade

I just found out about the Kuler app after reading about it on Tamera’s blog yesterday and had to share. As an extension of the popular Kuler website by Adobe, it allows you to upload or snap photos on your phone and then automatically pulls together a palette. You can tweak the colors by quickly moving the dots.

If you’re a total color nerd, there are tons of additional menu options to further customize your palette. Once you’ve pulled together the perfect combinations, you can synch the app with your Kuler account and upload it for safe keeping. If you’re feeling extra smug about your creations, you can also share them via email and Twitter.

Oh, and did I mention that the app is free? And that you can also import photos from the web and Flickr? I’m sensing a new addiction.


App: Adobe Kuler.

What I Wore: 7.4.13 | Blossom

What I Wore: Blossom

While this dress isn’t really my typical style, it caught my eye while in Minneapolis. I was also feeling that all too familiar desperation set in around this point of my trip because I was really low on clothing options. Whenever I travel for The Blogcademy, over half of my suitcase is always taken up by workbooks and decor. This dress was lightweight enough to roll up and squeeze in!

After trying it on, I figured it would be one of those perfect summer go-to pieces. This time of year, I tend to gravitate towards dresses I can reach for when it’s unbearably hot, throw on without a second thought and head out the door. I especially like this dress because the straps are adjustable, the length isn’t scandalously short and though the top is fitted, the loosely flowing bottom balances it all out. With trips to the Oregon Coast and Austin coming up quickly, I know it will get a lot of use.
