Quote of the evening…

Style…………is knowing who you are

~Gore Vidal

Perfectly said.

If I can talk honestly about anything, I can truly say…..you can’t please them all.  Style is so subjective.  Magazines, TV and the internet try to dictate what true style is when the reality is you are only as good as you feel.  It’s nobody’s business if you feel good in a $500 pair of shoes or a $50 pair.  I have learned that it really doesn’t matter. Someone is always going to judge you, whether good or bad so just be yourself.  Who is to say what is beautiful and what is ugly? We spend a lot of unnecessary time obsessing if we’re even presenting the right image only to have it backfire.  Coco Chanel was quoted as saying   “Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening”.  Point being, if it’s important to you, then it’s fashionable.  No matter what it is, make it your own.  Let your individuality stand out and be playful. Even if you work in the most conservative of places, take the time to play up your eyes or maybe break out the red lipstick. A dab of sparkle makes a huge difference in an otherwise dull day.
