Its always good to take a look back on the week, don't you think? Last week was an attempt at revisiting some of my tailored pieces to see how I could work them into my more casual work wear. Did it work? Yeah, but one of the results sort of sent me into a tailspin!
Trying to get the mix right was the problem at hand. At first, it was easy mixing the items, and then WHAM! Too many tailored items, or a skirt that was a smidgen too long, and I became an OLD LADY. Tailored items to me can mean old lady. The fully tailored matching suit--that would really date me.
So what did I learn? As usual, its a tightrope walk for us over 50. One false move, and I am 80. It's a balance and a tweak with modern and tailored. Color helps, but too much tailoring and I'm a schoolmarm.
Thanks to all of you to for helping me figure it out. Next week, I'm having some FUN!
