My post from 2017 is here. https://youlookfab.com/welookf.....ction-2017
I have thought about my style journey over the last few years and I have had two epiphanies that I am going to add to the above. I am also adding a Personal Challenge.
1/ I have attempted to add different colours to my wardrobe palette. I have bought teal and eggplant. I rarely if ever wear these pieces. The tags are still on an eggplant sweater I bought in Montreal 3 years ago.
Starting NOW I am going to stop doing this. I am going to stick to my colour palette of Olive Green (Sage Green), Chocolate Brown, Cognac (Cinamon, Tobacco, Rust,etc.), Denim and Cream (Warm White, Natural, Flax) with accents of Burnt Orange and Golden Yellow.
Fit and Silhouette
2/ Something I have realized recently is that a garment will never fit me even if I go up a size or down a size. I can try on a pair of jeans and feel frustrated because they feel awful on and I can not find the right size. On the other hand, there are garments that fit me perfectly. Size has nothing to do with this. I know some of the brands that work for me (Sandwich, Sarah Pacini, Fidelity Jeans, 7 for All Mankind if high rise, Three Dots T-Shirts). I know also what does not work for me (J Crew).
I am NOW going to look for high rise jeans and pants that have some movement to them. That seems to work better for me.
To find new ways of wearing existing clothing pieces instead of buying new pieces.
One idea that came to me as I was planning my travel capsule for Florida was "Reverse Utility Pretty". I don't usually take my swirly skirt with me to Florida because I don't have multiple ways to wear it. Then I thought why not think outside of the box? Why not wear the swirly skirt with a Utility Jacket, Jean Jacket (cami under both), T-shirt and Jean Shirt? There are 4 outfits for the swirly skirt. See pic of the swirly skirt.
Thanks for reading. Comments and feedback welcome.
