I'm interrupting your busy day to let you know some extremely important information....
Leila got new flip flops....
Jean Fever Spring Fever! There is something for everyone when it comes to denim for Spring 2012. Colors, Prints, Cuts, and Textures, oh my. The message here is be bold, have fun, try something new and as always dress to fit your frame.
Trying something new can be uncomfortable. As we get older, it's easy to think that we only look good in a certain cut. It helps to have a friend (not a husband) with you when you're shopping for new jeans. Someone who will tell you the truth, encourage you to get out of your comfort zone and who hopefully has some fashion sense of their own.
If you feel like nothing fits you quite right it may be that you need your jeans tailored for you. A tailor can easily bring waistlines in and shorten hems. Many designer jeans are left long for that purpose. Fine department stores will fit your jeans for you while you wait.
I've chosen these lovely selections from Citizens of Humanity. Oh and by the way, I want those sandals!
Essence is the most significant element, quality, or aspect of a person and that's what should be described in your style and wardrobe...the essence of you. I pulled together six basic essences that I thought you might be able to relate to. I am going to have so much fun with these on my blog!!! Ideas are swarming around my head like mad...Soon, I will show you examples of celebrities with your essence, themes gone wrong, great outfits for day and night that reflect your essence. Bags, shoes, hair styles, make-up all for you and your special, unique, fabulous personality. Well? So are you ready to see what I've come up with? You betcha (I don't really talk like that).
Here's a dress for each of my six essences of style...
Boho, Beach, Ethnic, Hippie. A comfortable look for free spirits.
Flash, Sparkle and a bit of Sexy Drama!
-Rocker or Punk Essence-
Strong, Tough and Cool often with a bit of leather & metal mixed in.
Retro, Recycled, Nostalgic and always sweet.
Chic, Preppy, Tailored, Conservative. Enduring looks that are always tasteful...hopefully.
Romantic, feminine and soft. Delicate forms and fabrics.
