First Post in a Series on Personal Style
From the bottom up
- Shoes: I bought these a few years ago at a Nordstrom semi-annual sale. They were not over $30. I go back and forth about keeping them, because of the ubiquitous Mary Jane thing; but the bold off-white stitching is the "sporty" accent that makes them suit ME.
- Hose: Last week, in a random moment, I stocked up on crazy tights. For me stocking up is about 4 pair, including these HEATHER GRAY ones. Yep, another "sporty" accent.
- Skirt: In my ad for a personal chef (which position, btw, is still open), I first mentioned this skirt. The A-line cut and wool in a classic heathery color make this a piece that is current and highly functional. If it were not current, a person with a strictly "functional" idiom could certainly still wear it, as could a more timeless classic, but I will probably sell it before then.
- Sweater: What could make a girl happier than a pink cashmere sweater? How about paying only $1 for it? Two things give this a "sporty" accent: the sweatshirt-like shape and the white crewneck t-shirt, which you probably can't see because of the light, showing at the neckline.
Never fear, I still have lots to say about color. I will get back to it. But, after our MOPS group went over style personality last week, I feel it's time to take a long-awaited turn down that path.
Especially since two of my friends guessed my style wrong after we took the quiz together. And they both had the same guess.
