Fashion Don't

With all the rain we had over the weekend I got to do all the indoor things I’ve been putting off all summer. Who wants to waste a gorgeous sunny day inside?. So I got up, downed a pot of coffee (yes, decaf, that’s another post for the non-knowing folks) and got to work organizing and cleaning the closets. Truth be told, not much organizing and certainly NO cleaning got done. What got done was me pulling things out, trying them on and then reminiscing about where I was, what I was doing and who I was dating when I actually wore the hideous thing. Then laughing hysterically while thinking that I actually wore it in public. Then putting in back in the closet because hey, it MAY come back in fashion.

For instance, I actually have a leopard print skirt in my closet. It was for summer. I wore it. In public. More than once. In the last decade. I even have witnesses. Scary, hunh? I like to keep it to remind myself what a fashion faux pas I am. YES, I know I don’t need that skirt to remind me of this fact.

Then there is a really nice Ann Taylor black skirt that comes right below the knee. I wore it with heels and a pink tailored shirt and a black leather jacket. Doesn’t sound too bad does it? Well, it was a “petite” (I’m sure the only reason I got it was because it was on sale) and I am 5’ 8”. It was not a nice mid-calf skirt. It hit me right below the knee and after trying it on I realized that I looked like I was 60. Good grief. Why didn’t someone TELL me this when I wore it?!?

Fashion Tip of the Day: You’re always safe in jeans and a white t-shirt. Unless of course the jeans are pegged and the white shirt is five sizes too big and belted…. Ahhhh… the 80’s….. now where are my Reebok hightops and hair scrunchy?
