That's how shopping should be, no matter what your style. You pick it specially.
And how do we choose what is special for us?
When I shop, I have about three general guidelines:
: Doesn't require ironing or looks good rumpled.
: Is comfortable. (Thank you God for stretch jeans.)
: Is classic with a touch of sass.
This covers a lot of territory. But if I think about it, what I'm trying to project is a woman doesn't want to be stared at, but rather noticed for a brief moment and appreciated for having taken a bit of trouble.
So, here are the looks that I keep returning to and probably will always love, and why:
Soft fabric, neutral color, and an interesting contrast between the conservative sweater and the elegantly sexy skirt.
Stretch jeans, classic striped T with a touch of unique styling, and the agelessly glamorous leather moto jacket.
Softly gathered skirt, classic cardigan worn casually as a pullover.
This is where I'm comfortable with flash.
Oh so comfortable, a bit of contrast to catch the eye, and dark color to keep it from looking frumpy.
Color, but delicate and kept from being twee with a chunky texture.
If I have to explain the appeal of this look, you probably aren't reading my blog anyway.
