We’re having a lovely spring day here!
Thanks everyone for your comments on Lisa’s and my collaborative style experiment. Just for the record, I had no idea that one of the shirts I’d selected for Lisa was THAT transparent. 😉 But she’s a Sturdy Gal in spirit as well as in style, and forged ahead like a trooper.
The idea of this exercise was to get each other to try a look that was out of character. I think we achieved that. And while the Lisa’s idea for me is objectively a very pretty look, it isn’t my look. I’ve been trying to figure out how to describe the sensation and the word I keep coming back to is ungrounded.
I’ve had a small print of the above artwork over my desk for years now. While I think we all need routines and that it’s helpful to have a strong sense of who we are and what works for us, a little shakeup every now and then is a good thing, even it’s it’s something as mundane as trying a new spot for lunch or trying on a new color or style. Even when the end result is that we decide The New Thing isn’t for us.
And about that pale blush jacket…though I liked the style very much, the overall piece didn’t sing to me. It hummed for sure, but at that price I want an aria. Also one of the better runners-up (and I tried on a LOT of jackets!) was this one
from Ann Taylor. Though it was a bit darker and heavier than the look Lisa was going for with my outfit, it’s really very cute and priced moderately for a leather jacket of this quality (and keep an eye out for sales and promotional discounts). Available in Petites sizes too.
The earrings too were gorgeous, even if again not my style. But they have encouraged me to get a bit bolder with my jewelry, and find my own kind of glamour. Maybe one or two of those pieces from Beladora that Lisa wore…
