My First Head Wrap

IMG_8271

Today I experimented with my first head wrap and I liked it. I don’t usually wear head wraps, since hats are my thing. This particular wrap i’m wearing is the same one I use to tie my head for bed at night.

I took one picture with my iPhone and this is it. So, just sharing because I likey.

Deep Blue Sweater

It’s a few days until the end of October and the weather is absolutely beautiful; so beautiful I decided to wear deep blue sweater (from this collage post) – one of my favorite hues – to blend with the sky. And yes, I wear white after labor day. In fact, I wear white whenever I feel like it, anytime of the year. Who follows that rule anymore? Anyone?

Today I wanted to feel joyous, carefree and light. Mission half way accomplished. It started out great and then the assistant at the optician’s office was so nasty and unprofessional that everything began to get really heavy. Her negative energy started to diffuse toward me. I tried to dodge it, but every time I turned there she was. And so she infected me, because the insurance company pissed me off shortly after. We pay close to $1000 per month for family insurance, and they have the nerve to give me hell to get my daughter’s glasses, which cost a measly $200. And mind you, we’ve not submitted one claim for the year.

After the battles and the issues were resolved, I found a pick-me-upper in a tub of Hagen daz, Rum & Raisin ice-cream; my splurge.

Office Inspiration

Interior decorating is definitely not my strong suit. I love tinkling around with ideas, but it does not come naturally. So, I seek inspiration from magazines, and sites like pinterest, and houzz. Today it’s office inspiration.

I use my basement as a home office and since we purchased the house i’ve held off on purchasing major decorative items, since in the past i’ve jumped the gun on pieces of furniture or accessories only to realize later, it was not a good fit.

Since i’m in no hurry, I’ll continue to draw inspiration from great sources until the right setting hits me.

Attention! This color has long been a favorite of mine. So, it’s really thrilling to see it rock the street style runway, and i’m  even more thrilled that I kept all my pieces from as far back as 8 years ago. And you can bet i’ll be wearing them long after the trend gets tired. What are your feelings on Military green? Do you like it? Do you wear it?

How I wore That Zara Dress

Autumn Hues

 

There was just something about this dress. The color, the pattern, the length, the style. It just seemed like something i’d appreciate wearing. A short while back I posted it in the collage, Autumn Hues.

I eventually caved on the dress and the sweater, which i’ll be wearing in combination soon. I paired my dress with a high heel boots. Next time i’ll go the flat heel route.

Simple Sunday Wear

The way we dress affects the way we think, the way we feel, the way we act, and the way others react to us. ~ Judith Rasband

I truly believe the aforementioned quote. ButI don’t believe that clothing makes the man.

I tend to call myself the moody dresser. I dress based on how I feel or want to feel. And certainly, the way people perceive one another has a lot to do with mode of dress. Of course, so many times those perceptions are off, which brings to mind “never judge a book by its cover.” Hell, I know folks who are power dressers and are anything but powerful. Conversely, there are simple dressers who are the most powerful people on the planet. Steve Jobs comes to mind. But, his simplicity was his style.

So why the emphasis on style and fashion? Style and fashion, clothing and how one dresses evokes emotion, and ultimately it’s all about the way we feel when we wear those clothes.

Hats are a part of my style. They are a part of me. When wearing them, I feel distinguished. It dosen’t matter that other may not think so. I do. It adds suave to my style and reminds me of home, Grande Riviere, Trinidad, the place where I picked up the hat habit – from my grandfather.

When it comes to style, to each his own. What determines your dress code?

Ok, this post goes way back to the end of August. I’ve got bunches of pics sitting in the archives to post. ‘Twas a simple combination. I love loose fitting, harem type pants. As I’ve gotten older, i’ve moved away from the extreme harems and settled with just baggy or loose.
