Whenever I wear royal blue, I feel vibrant and full of energy. It is helpful to know which colors look best next to your face.
More muted or dusty colors do me no favors. I need clear, bold jewel tones with high contrast and clean, simple lines with a lower neckline as opposed to a high round neckline. I wore bright silver and black earrings with no necklace because earrings and the focal point button on the jacket were enough embellishment for my taste.
My intent in showing you photos of what I wore is to give you some ideas for wardrobe combinations but also to set you off on the path to figuring out what is right for you and your coloring. We are all very different, and we lead different lives, but if sharing my journey helps you to put together a wardrobe that serves you well, I am very happy to continue this project. Wasting money on a closet full of clothes you never wear is no fun!
This fabulous blue jacket is by IC Collection via ShopMyFairLady.com. I can wear it through four seasons because it has sleek and flattering lines that add no bulk to my form, so an overcoat can be worn over it if needed. I enjoy wearing this jacket because the fabric is very forgiving of my dimples and rolls. When fabric drapes across your body leaving only a suggestion of your form rather than too much information, it is a winner with me.
On Saturday evening Mr. Mickey and I had a lovely dinner at The Bistro. Afterward, we returned to the Village Social in the hotel to listen to Chris Rhodes entertain us with his soft musical style.
Whenever I can remember the source of what I am wearing, I share that information with you. Often the items are old, but this jacket is new and still available at ShopMyFairLady.com. The slim fitting scoop neck tank is old from Adea. The pants are Travelers from Chico’s. The shoes are old by BCBGeneration. I apologize for the dull background here. At times, the best light available is by the elevator.
