The past few weeks I've been purging my closet of thing I don't need or want anymore- plus my new clothing/shoes need room to grow ;-) As I've looted through everything I've noticed some things about my style:
#1. It's slowly changed. It's ALWAYS changing. One day I'm all about the classic look and the next, gimmie some girly ruffles and vintage. If someone asked me to describe my style in one word, I honestly don't know what that'd be.
#2. I like bright, "original" pieces. I used to own nothing but brown, blue and black. One day my Mom pointed this fact out to me and ever since then I've steered clear of black if the item was offered in another color. A "friend" of mine, Hayden (he's a dude. Straight dude) once told me that although black is sexy on a woman, it's nice to see some color, too...And I like some off-beat items because they're JUST different.
ANYWAY, my point. I don't own a dressy black dress NOR a basic black work dress. I have this jersey, quarter length sleeved black dress:
What about any of you? Do you see a trend in the things you pick up, and if SO, do you go for the basics or more statement pieces with personality? What could your wardrobe use more of?
Here's an outfit for the day- That Calvin Klein Dress I sooo longed for. I found it for cheap on overstock.com!! I love it. I understand horizontal stripes aren't the most flattering, but I love it. I love the sweetheart neckline. The dress isn't work appropriate- more like summer/evening get-togetherish. I didn't wear this out, just trying it on :-) I slipped on my Guess Gold/brown shoes just for kicks. Love them. Perfect heel height!
