After walking, running, or hiking for three to five miles almost daily throughout the summer, leggings are in my wardrobe again. My style philosophy is to wear what makes you happy and confident. We haven’t come this far in life to have others tell us what we should or shouldn’t wear.
That laugh is real. I hate taking selfies, but I had no other option. My assistant called in sick at the final hour, and Mr. Mickey was busy with a meeting at the bank, so there was no one available to help me with photos for today’s blog.
The cardigan sweater is from White House|Black Market here. The long tank is by Clara Sunwoo from My Fair Lady here. The leggings are from Chico’s here. The Marc Fisher shoe/booties are from last year, similar here. I’m not wearing socks today because the weather was warm and sunny. If I show my forearms and wear an open neckline, I skip the socks. It’s all about balance and proportion. The tote bag is by Zac Posen a couple of years ago, similar here.
When I posted another selfie photo on Facebook this week, several people wanted to know what was in the boxes, so I thought I would give you a little tour of my studio/warehouse/storage space. The guest room and room over the garage has been taken over by the business.
I still have one corner reserved for my makeup table.
I store my scarf collection and some of the inventory for the shopping site on a rolling rack against one wall.
The crepe basics from my shopping site are stored in large boxes by size along the other walls. I have many units in stock and ready to ship today, but if I have sold out of your size, I will order it for you. The crepe basics are made in the USA and shipped weekly.
Below is a video tour of the studio and shoe storage area.
In the video, I mentioned that we were going away for the weekend, but predicted lousy weather has forced us to change our plans. When life hands you lemons, make a martini with a twist and look fabulous while you sip it.
My style inspiration for today’s look is from Anine Bing.
