Summer humidity = oversize clothes = effortless style = slouch chic.
I did a quick survey about anklets with high heels and it was unanimous: The people did not approve. (That didn’t stop me.)
After recovering from “I hate that hat,” I was told I was wearing “clown shoes.” I guess no one is listening: I dress to express my “get over yourself.”
I welcome constructive comments on my look but when it’s negative (e.g. “I hate that hat”) I ignore it. Listen to yourself.
I don’t like “black tie” as I would rather buy a raincoat. Still..one must honor the occasion. Trick: Buy something you can pull apart and wear as separates. I turned the heat down on the skirt by pairing it with a casual jacket.
Wouldn’t you go nuts for a collection of chic waterproof skirts, pants, jackets, and shoes? It would be a slam-dunk. (I could only find this skirt.)
My darling friends Annie (5) and Grace (3) happily agreed to demonstrate why a brightly-colored raincoat is the perfect antidote to a dreary day.
Look closely at my socks, s’il vous plait. Are they not de trop?
Dario the tailor asked me if I made the denim coat since it’s lined with mattress ticking. Oy, I wish I could be so creative.
You do not need to rob a bank to have style. But you might consider robbing a shoe store if they sell red and white oxfords.
It is not easy to be unfailingly charming. Or fun to be with. The discipline of being delightful at all times may seem impossible. It’s not.
