I haven't thought this out completely, but my reaction to Angie's insightful post made me realize that I do share with her a bold and structured aspect to my style, despite being introverted, reserved, shy in social situations, slow to warm up, and rather hermit like in nature - in other word, Angie's diametric opposite .
To wit, my most recent coat acquisition, bright pink from the 60s. I am drawn to bright pink lately and love the 60s style and buttons on this coat. And another fairly recent addition, bright pink vintage cashmere sweater - not the highest quality but the color called to me. Shown here with my now 16 (!) year old daughters.
Still thinking about the apparent contradiction between my sometimes out there style choices and my extremely inward mental state. All thoughts and comments welcome of course!
