In our recent photo shoot, our very skilled photographer, John Eisele of Ft. Collins, Colorado, captured this photo in motion. We believe it to be the most amazing photo of Beckons clothing ever. It helps that Sarah Culter Johnson, 4th grade teacher at Montclair Elementary School and former Denver Bronco Cheerleader, is gorgeous, sweet and charismatic. She is wearing the Wisdom Ruffled Capris. We thank them both for providing us with such inspiring photos.
Beckons, People and the Community
Color is all around us. We wear color everyday. People respond to different colors in different ways, and these responses occur on a subconscious, emotional level. At BECKONS®, we believe the colors we wear, and surround ourselves with, can make a difference in how we feel and how people feel about us.
Our goal is to empower people with the knowledge of how to use color to affect change in their lives. We have created a color chart that presents the most common effects each color has according to our western culture. We have pulled information from Feng Shui, Chakra and Cultural sources to create our chart. Certainly, your intention to affect change may be the primary reason it occurs. Your simple belief that if you wear turquoise, in one of its many forms, you will think more clearly and have greater patience may indeed be what brings those qualities to you. If color, then, is just a tool to identify our intention, we have succeeded.
A person does not have to wear one color from head to toe to make color helpful. You only need to make a conscious decision about wearing something of color to enhance your day. A carefully chosen pair of red coral earrings or shoes, worn with a black suit, may be all you need to bring that extra sense of self-confidence and courage it takes to have a successful day. Please keep this BECKONS® color chart on hand to use in choosing the color you wear when you need a little extra help in your life. If you believe it helps, it will help.
The BECKONS® color chart was developed from a compilation of data from feng shui, chakra, and cultural use of color sources. We pulled out the most frequently found meanings and paired them with our own color experience, taking into account our western culture. This is the opinion of BECKONS® and is not a result of formal experimentation.

Thank you, Shigeko, for your photo submission! You are beautiful in your Beckons outfit. She is wearing the Wisdom Sleeveless Yoga Top in charcoal. You really make us proud.

It is with heart-felt gratitude that we thank the models who participated in the Spring 2011 Photo Shoot. These ladies are amazing yogis and friends. It is not always easy to capture just the right shot, especially when the yoga position has to be perfect first. We, then, race into the field of the photo and adjust the clothing to eliminate the wrinkles. This season we have four fabulous models: Sarah Culter, Peyton Prater, Isha Eve Emley (not pictured) and Kathryn Visser. Continue reading
