I sincerely enjoy hearing from readers. Your positive comments, questions, and topic suggestions give me ideas for new content. After more than nine hundred blog posts here and on my old blog, I fear that I have covered all the topics you might find interesting.
A variation of “How do you find your style?” is a question I get often. Whether you are building a wardrobe, decorating your home, or creating a flower garden, my thought is that you should add only the items that give you joy. After that, it is merely a matter of arranging those elements pleasingly.
Prints are a rare item in my wardrobe. I sometimes wear a repeating geometric print top with clean lines and a loose flowing style in warmer weather. When I showed you this navy and white Clara Sunwoo top from ShopMyFairLady.com in an earlier video, some of you expressed surprise because it is shorter and has a print on one side. If the pattern had covered the whole top and included more color, I would not have found it interesting at all. These are the details that make the pieces we are drawn to work with our style. Adding a long necklace with tunics helps to break the horizontal line created by my ample bust. Nude shoes and white pants create a long sleek line. Navy shoes would have created another color break, which would have made my legs look shorter. Knowing what you like is one thing; putting it all together to flatter your shape is the icing on the cake.
Mr. Mickey and I often enjoy a mid-week break by having a late lunch at Gourmet and Company. Last week, as we were leaving, we ran into Chef John outside. He is a truly gifted artist who creates dishes that are both a feast for the eyes and the palate. He is also one of the nicest people you will ever meet.
The Clara Sunwoo top and Lior Paris pants I am wearing are from ShopMyFairLady.com. The Kivah Block-Heel Dress Sandals are from Macy’s. The handbag was from Express last year. The sunglasses are by Tory Burch. The necklace is this one from French Kande.
