As you all know, I'm big on fashion. I love clothes and shoes, but more importantly, I love the right clothes and shoes for me. I started a new job last week in a professional building where I must dress business-appropriate. It's been twenty years since I've worked in an office, and since then, hosiery has gone out of style. Women wear bare legs with their dresses. But I don't wear bare legs. I'm over 40 and my legs don't look like Halle Berry's. But I've seen a lot of women with bare legs who have no business wearing that "style." Sometimes, you have to just say no.
My current pet peeve is the strapless wedding gowns. Granted, I'm not a fan regardless, but it was miserable to watch really overweight brides in strapless gowns. Or have their tattoos show down their arms in their strapless gowns -- something not very churchy about that. But I guess they're proud of them. I miss that too, I guess.
What I'm trying to say is just because something is in style, doesn't mean it's for you. YOU have to dress your body for your body type and be realistic with what that means. Is there a style you've rejected on the basis that it didn't work for you?
