Be confident in your clothes. It is the only style “secret” that’s always true: feeling confident. It’s one of the reasons style role models rise to their pedestals (thinking about Tilda Swinton, Ines de la Fressange, Jackie Kennedy, Rebel Wilson, Tracee Ellis Ross). They stand up straight, think confident thoughts, throw on a pair of sunglasses and a Mona Lisa smile.
Welcome to Visible Monday. If you want to participate, it’s so easy: just go to the bottom of this post for the how-to. Link back to Not Dead Yet Style if you like – we’re on Easy Does It “rules” now!
I don’t approach “role model” status, heh, but I like to go out and about feeling confident. (It’s good therapy too for Seasonal Affective Disorder, that we talked about last week.) Sometimes I will do a last-minute once-over in the mirror and say “this needs something” and throw on a denim jacket. Or “this is too-too” and take off a second brooch.
The denim jacket was a gift from Soft Surroundings a few years ago; the J Crew blouse and Lands End pencil skirt were thrifted locally. Then I shred the hem of the skirt. The shoes are retail, my favorite orange sneaker/oxfords from Sofft. I just bought a back-up pair, something I’ve never done with shoes, because they were $35 on deep sale. I don’t want to be without them.
