The Secret to a Great Outfit
Posted on August 22 2019
I’m standing in my closet with a robe on, and should’ve left for the event 10 minutes ago. I stare absently at the collection of clothing I have accumulated. I love everything. And nothing. What’s the event? A play. People wear jeans, people wear dresses and heels; like most events these days, there is no dress code. This unnerves me and excites me all at the same time. People like direction. Tell me what to wear! I’ve bought outfits just for these category occasions.
Then I think about what I tell clients everyday in the store- just buy what you love and we can always style it for events/ life! So I grab two things I love; pieces that are contrasting, perfect for our Southern Summer heat and different enough to make me feel cool, confident, comfortable. Isn’t that always the goal?
The beaded miniskirt is an ode to date night, an ode to the play we’re attending. Light shimmering off delicately sewn beads no doubt says, “celebrate!”. I top it off with an oversized white, linen shirt to counteract the skirt. Contrast is the key. Anytime you can wear something fitted with something blousy, a sparkly fabric with a natural fabric, do it. Contrasting helps the outfit to look original and styled, different from the crowd, and more true to YOU!
All night I felt comfortable and calm. It’s crazy, I will say it a million times because it’s true- when you look good, you feel good (And vice versa, but that’s a blog for another day).
