I have been trying to write this post for months.
Sometime in back October 2010 I made a start...
In this month's edition of Red I read an article by Anna Van Praagh that set me pondering.
The article was 'Modern, glamorous, edgy, chic, eclectic... what are your 3 words'
The idea is that your style can be summed up three words and once you figure out what they are you can be sure that you'll never make an ill advised wardrobe purchase ever again and you'll refine your style to fully reflect who you are.
It was a great article and I've been mulling it over ever since. So far I have 'classic' as I tend to stick to simple shapes and styles but I just can't seem to settle on the remaining two (and still question whether classic is right).
A few months later, after several re-writes and some pondering...
Classic. I'm happy with that. I think casual should be one of the three. I do love to dress up but catch me on any given day and you're more than likely to find me in jeans. I don't like to wear anything that restricts movement and/or breathing or anything with too many folds, ruffles or flounce. I have stated on this very blog that 'anything too smart or formal makes me want to run for the hills.'
Today I'm trying to settle on my third and final word...
Classic, casual and... and...? Hum.
Style(ish)? As in I have my own style(ish) rather than I am stylish.
