“Look at you,” my friend at work said, “I love your outfit!”
I looked down at myself to refresh my memory about what I was wearing. I had on a bright fuchsia sheath dress paired with skyscraper turquoise shoes.
“Thanks! Could you believe I have had this dress for forever?”
From across the room one of the guys glanced at me and commented, “Yeah, I can believe it… those colors are so 80’s.”
Before I could utter a word, my friend interjected coming to my defense, “Men! You know nothing! She is totally in style… She’s color blocked.”
I am not conventional…. But you probably know that already….
I like to keep up with the latest styles. But I don’t pick up on the trends in conventional ways. I don’t scour over pages of fashion magazines or check out fashion sites on the internet.
I people watch and window shop. I love to get inspiration from others – good and bad. And I love to meander through stores and pick up on the latest trends by seeing what the stores are showing, to get ideas on how to spice up my look – even including mixing and matching new pieces with old.
What are your favorite resources for inspiration on style, fashion, beauty and living life well?
