“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.” Coco Chanel
Why fashion designers affect what we wear everyday is for others to answer but they are copied and cloned and sold retail everywhere. Some of us can’t buy designer fashion or want to but we like to imitate it. The word “style” is often used without thinking. “This is out of style”, “this is so in style” even the phrase “your own style” is somewhere part of what is in or was in fashion. A person’s unique style was put together differently from ideas already out there from decades of design.
We have to buy clothes like food. Why not make it look good? Sometimes a paper plate with sloppy pizza is great but every meal everyday? Clothes should make you feel good, compliment your figure and say something about who you are. The way we dress should give us confidence.
This blog gives me the opportunity to share my style, share ideas, show something lovely, announce a bargain. Some people share good food, I share my ideas about fashion.
Todays flip is all about my favorite staples. Red pants, a white button-down blouse, jean jacket, leopard print shoes, converse and stripes in any design. Classic colors like white, blue, red and brown are very complimentary. Easily mixed and matched for the perfect outfit anytime of the year!
These Old Navy Pixi pants are flattering and comfortable and come in so many great colors. I want them all!
If you haven’t noticed I am a little obsessed with the jean jacket this year. I wish that I had never tossed the Max Mara one I had years ago. It was perfect. I have so regretted it. But I do love my new one!
