A friend and I were discussing our style the other day, we have similar taste
and were trying to find the words to describe our personal style.
It's a tricky one. I just like this and that and that and that.
Often no rhyme or reasons appears. It just happens to be how I feel at the moment..
I liken my wardrobe to a roller coaster ride...it is often one wild ride.
But when you reach a certain age, which I have, that's OK in my books.
So...when I saw this Irish tweed coat in our local vintage shop for a great price I had to say yes.
I have been wearing it all week and absolutely love it. It's a good fit, I have lots of scarves to
go with it and it is my new best friend...at least for now. No matter that in six months time
I will be moving to a tropical climate. I am living in the here and now.
Then you have days when you are feeling a bit retro..yearning for yesteryear and with a Liberty label, I said why not. I can dress it up, down, it is silk, a good price, I live in England, I am moving to Vietnam...all good reasons to purchase this blouse. See what I mean?
Ah yes, my evening coat. Well, at least that is what I call it. I have no idea when and where I will wear it. But I know....something will come up, somewhere, someday. I am thinking long black evening dress or black pants, black turtleneck with this thrown over my shoulders as I go out the door. Then again, it could be something fun and funky for the cocktail circuit. Just need to find the right cocktail crowd...
who will not raise an eyebrow when I enter looking like a throwback from a 1960's Peter Seller's movie. :)
It is all about embracing our muse...more on that over here.
I don't seem to have a problem with that..I just have to try and keep her under control.
Now, what I am dying to know....does this ever happen to you?
