LADIES: brace yourselves!
This Fall: “anything goes” with everything and anything.
Forget the “matchie-matchie” look. Rather, even in textures,
colors and fabrics... “nothing matching” is the M.O. this season.
If you can let go of your comfort zone and enjoy the frivolous nonsense that you see in boutiques, magazines & catwalks... then you will have a “dope-n-delightful” Autumn. “Devil make care”
is an easy attitude to embrace. Why erase it or turn a blind eye!??
Starting right here in our wonderful country, everything is “topsy turvy”. Like it or not, fashion mimics global events and energy.
If we can sort of “lean into” these crazy, nuts-o-silhouettes...
we might just lighten up our own little worlds.
Can you be daring enough to give these crazy trends a try?
Maybe even pretending like you're dressing up a doll?
Trust me, with joy and confidence, you might just have
the guts to head out your front door...while laughing at life,
liberty and the pursuit your deserved happiness!
“Lions and tigers and bears oh my”!
So many designers are spotlighting animal prints...
especially lions and tigers... into their collections.
I was all “all smiles" scoring this vintage Chinese jack-shirt
from Japan at The Flea. Immediately, I made this bracelet.
Now, I'm on a hunt for pants that won't match!
The back side of this Salvation Army “hoodie” has inspired
me to find something to complete...not match... this sweater.
To be on top of the Fall game: hounds-tooth, traditional
herringbone and English twill are all safe, "NOW" bets.
Mixing these traditional patterns with anything outrageous
will break you out of “cookie cutter” mode and
make you the “IT” girl of the season!
Retro... with a twist... welcomes in the coziness of this Fall season
Now for a quick march down...memory shoe and purse lane.
that this color combo would ever circle back!?!?
How fun: needlepoint and brocade boots
and sneakers worn with....whatever.
DON'T TOSS IT OUT...if you have room for it: KEEP IT.
I found these looks in a magazine and in my closet!
OMG, this season, all of the stops have been pulled!
It's a marvelous rainbow of a jungle out there!
You can copycat by gluing-n-pasting anything on anything.
Or purchase any piece...as long as it doesn't match anything.
Yup, that's the rule this Fall.
No words necessary re: this "designed to perfection"clutch
and these museum quality sensational stilettos. Although I am obsessed with this high, high heel...
...I'm opting for school girl and tiger loafers.
You can pick up semi precious tassels at any hobby/craft shop
and have a jeweler make them into earrings. Jewelers can also make magnificent necklaces with your broaches & earrings.
Back to the hobby shop. Why buy these bejeweled sweaters? Simply study them. Next: using your "inner child's" wit & wisdom, randomly glue a bevy of jewels and flowers on to
a crew neck or collared sweater and “let your freedom fly”!
We could choose to ignore “Global Warming”. This year, here
in California, July and August were the only “snow-free” months.
So get ready to stay warm and bundle up----> unmatched!
If it's a freezing cold party...layer, layer, layer...unmatched!
Wishing you a “twirl” of a Fall season... unmatched by any other!
