I am having so much fun branching out into brand new territory for me. I figure the more I push my fashion boundaries and force myself to try new looks, the more they'll start feeling like "me" or else I can figure out what works and doesn't so I can evolve my style. I already feel so much more fab than I did even a few weeks ago!
Here are some of the new looks I've experimented with since I joined YLF two months ago:
monochromatic head to toe look
scarves (I didn't own a single belt or scarf!)
skirts with boots
pussy bow blouses
wearing jewelry more often
wearing lipstick more often
shorts and tights
dramatic trench coats (ruffled black and red corset)
dressing down evening dresses to wear during the day
long graphic T and cardigans
high heels (sandals and leopard heels)
layering and the ALGO look
Whew! Can you believe I never did any of those before? I can't believe what a style rut I was in before YLF!
And here's a few more new looks I want to try, but they would require purchasing some items first--I can only change so fast, you know! ;)
accessorizing my old plain black sheath dress (that I haven't worn in ages)
white and black button down dress shirts (hope to see you soon, Anne Fontaine! ;))
capri/clamdigger length jeans
more pattern mixing
cape or poncho (maybe, not sure about this look yet)
moto jacket/RATE look
parka and slip dress
faux fur vest
fitted velvet/cord jacket
fitted neutral blazer
learning more about scarf tying--maybe even a headscarf!
Una recently posted this comment on one of my threads:
"GP, I think you deserve an award for "Most Rapidly Fab" or something. It is amazing how quickly your style has evolved, like watching time-lapse photography or something. Incredible." I had to laugh at that and nod my head...when I get into something new that excites my passion, I like to totally jump in with both feet! Team Dive all the way! I am so glad I found YLF--Angie and all of you ladies are the best!!! I'm having a blast!
What are you all experimenting with or what do you want to try next? I need some new ideas to try because I haven't been busy enough, LOL!
