I think I overdress sometimes. Well, I Iike fashion and since I have been working from a home office for the last 5 years anytime I have an outside meeting, networking event, school meeting, I love to dress up. If my husband says it’s hideous I know it’s fashionable! Case in point, I bought a black satin blouse with balloon sleeves and pleated front. I loved it. As I headed out the door to a networking event he said WHAT are you wearing???
When I met my friend prior to the event she said where did you get that blouse? I have to get it! (she went out and bought the same one the next day) We of course went shopping prior to the event and wouldn’t you know at least three people complemented me on my shirt! (each time I got a huge chuckle)
So my advice is wear what you like and what you feel comfortable in no matter how fancy or hideous others may think it is!
For my fashion forward friends here are some cool must have’s for this season:
The blouse – jewel tones are in – especially deep rich tones like purple or as the fashionistas say plum, amethest and aubergine.
The Shoe – anything patent leather – check out these ones from Coach or Cole Haan. Or heck – just head to the Marshall shoe department where there are rows and rows to choose from!.
The color Cobalt – that bright blue color I just picked up a sweater from my new favorite store Canada based Jacob.
The tough trend – Studs. Here is one that is tough for some – studs – but it does make a nice addition to heels, bags and dresses
The accessory – Anything belted – a dress, coat, skirt. So wear what you like and forget about what anyone says!
