Hi everyone, calling for help on this style moniker thing. I decided in 2017 on Eclectic Matriarch because
1. I like all sorts of stuff and 2. I feel like a matriarch. Not just because I'm older now, but because my Mum died almost 20 years ago when I was 38, which made me the oldest female in my direct line with at the time a 33 year old sister, 8 and 5 year old daughters, and a 2 year old son. I felt...responsible for all of them. And I have mentored younger colleagues since 2004 and I seek to look after people.
But really, it doesn't help me choose clothes. Some kind Fabbers had ideas on the blog post... nomadicliz, Suz, and Angie. Pixie and elfin and theatrical have been mentioned. I used to look more elfin and pixieish when younger... but not to put too fine a point on it, I've never seen a grey haired pixie or elf with a fat tummy? Maybe in a childhood illustration of The Elves and the Shoemaker? They still didn't have grey hair.
I thought I might like Playful in there? My shoes especially feel a bit playful and so do my earrings. I also like small quirks, but am not really quirky. That's Rachy!
I did consider Playful Practitioner which gives a nod to my life's work as well as to the idea of practising or playing with ideas. I don't want to be only defined by my work though. I love Gryffin's idea of "Would a P-POD wear this?" but saying "Would a Playful Practitioner wear this?" doesn't have the same focus.
Here are some pics of my fave Playful ( red) lipstick and some other happy things. Help?!
