I have always loved clothes. I've always loved getting dolled up and looking cute.
However I am "JUST" now starting to apperciate FASHION.
There is a HUGE difference between loving clothes and loving fashion.
I've been on the loving clothes side for a very long time.
Lately I've been looking at a lot of fashion blogs. I have one that is like a super favorite. It's like a fantasy blog to me because I wouldn't buy any of the stuff this lady wears. While it's all gorgeous, it's just too expensive for ME.
What I'm noticing is that some of this fashion isn't realistic for everyday life. Well, let me back up and say it's not realistic for MY everyday life.
I'm a SAHM. Period. While I DO have days when I have on jeans and a tshirt (like I did this weekend) the majority of the time, I don't LOOK like a SAHM. I don't want to either. Folks will see me and will ask where I'm going and all I have on is a dress and some cute flats. Umm hello? LOL. I'm going to the grocery store. That's how MOST of my days are.
Colorblocking is HUGE right now, like HUGE. Some of the things I see are very cute, and very fashion forward. Some of this other stuff has me like O_o. It's tacky. Plain and simple.
This is based of MY taste. My preference. It has nothing to do with how someone else feels. Now, I don't always knock it out of the park, but I think I'm FAR from tacky lol.
I was talking to Toy about this the other day. I've been looking at a LOT of things different. I want the things I sew to last. Not just the wearability of my garment but the style. I love classic pieces that will last me forever.
I still have suits from when I was in corporate america. I still wear them. They STILL look good. WHY? Because they are classic pieces.
I like to have fun with my accessories. I'm beginning to not like trendy shoes lol. I love a cute shoe, but will I still like it in a few years? My thinking is changing.
Ok, my ramble is over. May not make sense to you but it's what's on my mind right now.
What are your thoughts?
