Why Classic Style Endures

To quote the famous Heidi Klum, “as you know in fashion one day you’re in, and the next day you’re out.” This is very true BUT sometimes an exception comes around and you find certain styles and designers that stick around for a while. Now, what makes that happen? Well, that’s the topic of today’s discussion, folks (amongst other things of course…)

Funky Fresh

There are two questions I have a hard time answering in interviews — 1) Where do you see yourself in five years? (answer: let me get through this month’s Google calendar and I’ll get back to you) and 2) How would you describe your personal style? (answer: can you just describe it for me?) It’s a tough question to answer on your own. You get dressed, put on the clothes you want because you like them but never really stop to think “what IS my personal style?” Maybe it’s because you haven’t figured it out just yet…

The Art Of Getting Dressed

The way we get dressed is such a personal thing. Unless you have to wear a uniform everyday, there’s an entire thought process that is choosing an outfit. Of course this process differs depending on the occasion (for example, you’ll probably spend more time on putting together a look for a wedding as opposed to what you’ll wear running errands on the weekend). But how exactly do we go about this? Have you ever really thought about it? Let’s go ahead and break down the art of getting dressed.

What Won’t You Wear?

By this point in our lives, we have a pretty good idea of what we like and don’t like. Food, people, clothes…you’re never going to love everything/everyone and that’s okay. I despise pickles, not a fan of narcissism and I have a thing against strapless. See? It’s as simple as that.

So today, I thought it would be fun to play a little game called What Won’t You Wear? And by game I mean you just tell me in the comments the clothing / accessories you absolutely would not wear. Ready? Go.
