aahhh, I got nuthin'. I'm not fashion illiterate, dyslexic maybe, 2nd grade level reader maybe. I can't translate seeing clothes to wearing clothes and I'm very picky when it comes to fit and wearability (I'm being told that's not a word - how apropos) . I don't know how to go bold. I can pick individual items, but have a very hard time making outfits. Plus I'm all over the place eclectic in my tastes. Then you know there's the small matter of the single-income-earner-out-of-work/harried-mother-of-3-with-no-time-to-do-own-laundry-much-less-shop thing I got going on.
I don't do fashion blogs, because for me, what's the point? I can stare at things all day, doesn't mean it will work for me, that I have the ability duplicate it or the money to afford it. But sometimes fashion makes an appearance on some of the blogs I do read. Like One Pearl Button. Her style fits one of my personalities. A quiet quirky one. But, Unlikely Housewife, now her picks make me drool. Her picks are colorful, boldly (to me) accessorized, and damn sexy. I can completely imagine her wearing them, but me - not so much. Though they appeal to another personality, it is one that I didn't discover until it was kinda too late for her to really bloom. It's winter for her and I hope she will see spring again - if I wore something like this, it might just seem like the end of the frost.
I don't think there's a woman out there who couldn't bring a little summer heat to her Valentine's date if she showed up wearing this.
