Thanks to Low Fat Dressing (LOVE THE TITLE), I've become a bit more interested in jazzing up my fashion statement these days. I can usually be found wearing Hillary Rodham Clinton's less expensive pantsuits during the fall/winter and your crazy Aunt Moonbeam's hippy-dippy long skirts in the spring/summer. Both ends of the fashion spectrum and where I truly fall is somewhere in the middle. I like classics with a sporty edge. I like crisp white shirts with popped collars and some graphic color. I love pashminas. I like a good fitting pair of jeans with some killer heels. I love big chunky jewelry, but have very little of it, other than a couple of cuff bracelets.
All of this to say that I'm not about to turn into a clothes horse (even though I did just hit the clearance rack at Marshall's a few days ago). I don't have the space or the inclination to do that. However, I can add a couple of versatile pieces and most importantly, find a style and stick to it! Accessorize, Roxie!
You will just have to imagine what I'm wearing today, as I cannot figure out how to take a self-portrait. Actually, I think it may involve learning how to off the flash or perhaps buying a tripod and finding the timer. But here goes - I'm wearing an almost ankle-length black AK skirt, a handme down from Pebbles. It's five years old, as it was part of the AK ensemble I bought her when she started her first job. It's been worn a mere handful of times by either of us. I went and bought tights yesterday, as I have no taller black boots. So I'm wearing this skirt (with a deep slit up the front) with black tights and ankle boots (gift from Mom about 4 years ago). I've got it topped with a white button down shirt with French cuffs(Princeton NJ thrift shop). I'm wearing my purple pashmina kinda over the shoulder (think Eddie Murphy in Coming to America, and I don't remember when/where I got the pashmina) and at a weird angle, all belted with a Brighton belt that is also a million years old. So there you have it. I've gotten a couple of compliments on the ensemble, including one from a former Freddie's-of-Movietown buyer. I don't really know what to make of THAT! So that's today's fashion show. I've got a body built for radio, for sure.
Shortened workout this morning. Spin class on tap at lunch. Tonight is another Closet residents' function, but I think I'll nix that in favor of watching the Dr. Oz show with all the folks on it. Hi Lori!. There's just no way to make both things work. I probably need inspiration more than I need a cheeseburger!
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Add Flair.
