This Tuesdays "tell all" subject is what not to wear. Find something in your closet that you think is amazing but know in 5 years you will just die knowing you ever wore it. I looked in my closet and there is really nothing there but jeans, Target and Gap t-shirts and sweatsuits (do they still call them that?) There are a couple of cute church dresses and a really awful dress I wore to my sons wedding....it looked so cute when I tried it on! Of course there are a 1000 beautiful photos and a wonderful dvd to document this wardrobe malfunction!
While I was perusing my closet and thinking about what to write...I had a flashback! A picture that is blazed into my mind forever. My most favored, cherished, grownup, put together myself (who needed a stylest in the 90's) outfit ever. Are you ready? You just have to picture every last beautiful detail in your mind. Here we go...
I feel I have to start at the top and go down. Of course I was a teensy tiny bit thinner than I am now....a white round neck Liz Claiborne t-shirt that had tiny little navy polka dots. Over the top of that I wore this cotton, yes Liz Claiborne, cotton, sorta boxy jacket that was navy blue with huge white polka dots. This was worn over a pair of the cutest stretch pants with stirrups...yeah you all remember them..we all wore them, don't lie...you did. These stretch pants were the same navy blue as the jacket, yes they were Liz Claiborne, but they had the cutest medium sized polka dots...and I thought they made my legs look great!! Now I know you are wondering where the "I put it together myself" part comes in. I have to admit that Liz did a great job with the clothing part. But the final and most memorable part of the outfit was the shoes. Oh how I miss those shoes. Cute slip ons. Little ballet type flats....very similar in style as seen today...jeez I am getting old when the style has come and gone and come again....But these were not any old ordinary flats...something had to balance out all that matchy matchy! They were the cutest pair of navy and polka dot shoes...Yeah baby! Same navy as the pants and jacket and polka dots on the shirt. Navy and polka dots from head to toe!
Man I miss those shoes...
