Ladies, this is a cry for help. I’ve been in a funk lately. My photos have not been at all to my liking, thus the lack of posting. I finally got one that I was somewhat satisfied with. After analyzing it, I realized I broke a lot of fashion rules. Can you spot them? Honestly, I’m all for breaking fashion rules, just not all at once.
For starters, I’m wearing a LARGE print on the bottom, something I rarely ever do, but I was drawn in by the bright fruity/floral print. I remember there was a time when I would cringe, when I saw someone, especially a middle aged woman, wearing something like this especially with those elasticized Aerosole type shoes that come in every color and color combination of the rainbow. Yeah, those ones. Now here I am, middle aged woman wearing such a thing. Life is so cruel. Well, at least I’m not sporting the elasticized shoes!
Secondly, I’m wearing somewhat broad horizontal stripes. This is a rule I often break and still manage to evade the fashion police, but usually with a solid or small print on the bottom.
Lastly, shoes with straps at the ankles. Again, I usually get away with this, but not with capris. If I'm wearing this type of shoe, I'll show a little more leg. At 5’7”, I'm no shorty and I consider my legs to be a reasonable length, but take it from me, unless you’re a supermodel with super long legs, skip these kinds of shoes with capris. Come to think of it, even if you are a supermodel with super long legs, avoid this. In defense of these shoes, they’re by Korkease and the most comfortable things ever!
This is my first whiney post ( I think). I try to keep it upbeat, but I just couldn’t keep it in any longer, plus I figured Monday Mingle, Visible Monday and Thrifters Anonymous would perfect forums for airing my frustrations.
The upside to this disaster is that I didn’t actually wear it out in public. Whew! Another good thing is that I’m going to completely deconstruct this outfit and correct each wrong (suggestions are welcomed). Wow! That’s three posts right there. Now if I can only get some good pics! Thanks for listening.
What do you do when you’re in a funk and none of your outfits or photos pan out?
