Up until the beginning of this summer, my wardrobe staples were as follows:
- My work uniform. Which, I have to say, was the very defintion of flattering.
- My pajamas.
- My jeans and t-shirts.
- My workout and soccer clothing.
- Two or three shirts, all black, that made me look thin enough but also allowed me to blend into a crowd should we go out.
Basically, not a lot of people were coming to me for advice on how to look stylish, know what I mean?
I turned thirty-five this summer and made it my goal to start <gasp> acting my age! This included dressing up a bit more, wearing more dresses and skirts and to stop being afraid of colour. (Still no patterns though, you can't change me that much!).
We've covered my fetish for shoes. Did I tell you about the new grey patent leather pumps? Heavenly. In any case, I'm pretty good at putting together a flattering outfit and I was blessed with a smart friend who took me out to buy eleventy hundred items that all match. It's foolproof.
Except. I have a few lingering concerns. Want to help?
- Where did the fashion world land on black and brown being mixed together?
- What about white after labour day? Is this still taboo? I have this great pair of white pants, but I'm thinking it's time to put them away, no?
