You inspired me to download the Charlie's Angels soundtrack
Thanks Jenni, Brooklyn and Suntiger....
The proof will be how I use this to aid further shopping or styling....
YOU NAILED IT!
LOVE the way you incorporated those '70s Charlies Angels into EVERY aspect of your wardrobe life, Sal. The bomb, sister. The BOMB

Thanks Angie and Bijou - you both really helped me get there!
It is the vibe that I want - and that is what made me know I got there in the end.....
This is brilliant, Sal!! Love it!!
Now we need a TV show with you starring as all 3 grown up Angels!
Oh I missed this before, so I will just say I love all these for you! Charlie’s Angels indeed!
Haha Suz...watch this space...
Thanks Christina- rather aspirational but that's good!!
LOL! Sal, this is a tremendously fun post! :-). You nailed it! I am so bad at Avatars and Style Icons, but I have a fun Cell phone app avatar, and when my hair was short she looked almost exactly like me!
I have fond memories of watching Charlie’s Angels when I was a tween in the mid 70’s. Many had a favorite Angel and tried to imitate their hair style. I suspect we currently recall the original Angel cast....Jaclyn Smith, Kate Jackson, Farrah Fawcett, and Cheryl Ladd (joining soon thereafter), but there were a couple others as well.
I’m just catching up on this and think it’s such a great exercise, and with such fun results! I’m grinning at the Charlie’s Angels personas, having watched that growing up.
I’d be tempted to try this exercise myself, but I tend to think more visually and instinctively in terms of my style rather than assign names or terms. The monikers always seem a little too *too* for me or something. I can’t even begin to think of a muse for myself. Is that weird?
You nailed it, Sal!!! I can't wait to see where you go with this!
I like this version ! So fun That was one of my favourite shows back in the day.....
And Janet - me too. I can't come up with actual people as muses either ...
I have nothing else to add re: avatars, since the other Fabbers have already addressed it so eloquently, but I have a couple of things to address:
1) You look smashing in your sunglasses & LBD - I can't quite put my finger on it but they really harmonise with your natural facial features & body shape, somehow. No doubt Kibbe type related?
2) Thank you for introducing me to Villanelle (Jodie Comer) - I of course will never be a white blonde lol, but her facial structure reminds me of my own a little. I don't think I've ever seen a celebrity resemble my own features that much, so I think her looks will be great inspiration for both my affinity for colour & my Kibbe type (once I figure out what that is)
"Grown-up Charlie's Angel" is a brilliant term to encapsulate your style. It captures the glam and fun and practicality in one fell swoop.
Thanks Jenn - I think it encapsulates a mood that I want to adopt as I enter my 50s in a week!
Thanks Zaeobi - I think having a wide face makes sunglasses work easily on me. Especially lucky in our climate! I am Kibbe Natural or Flamboyant natural- I think! And Jodie Cramer is a top actor and very scary as Villanelle...
Thanks Janet - I was partly there but this consolidated a few things together. I hope it steers next away from too classic or too cute or too avant- garde - all great looks but not for me. I see no need for a moniker or muse either - especially when you know your style and have a great closet!
Thanks Nemosmom - you helped me get there.
Thanks Lisa - I hope we can both use our analysis to add the right pieces and dress how we want. I see no reason to have a muse- I didn’t have one til now and I hardly see myself as Farrah or any of the angels......,, but it feels right.
Staysfit - I used all my tricks to be allowed to watch the show on tv. I remember one day watching through the window from the deck:) suspect it is horribly dated but of course there was a recent reboot last year which I may try and view sometime.
