So I Bought this Stylebook App

Friday, June 14, 2013

This app allows me to inventory my clothes and make outfit or looks that I can save and review when I can't think of what I want to wear. It also has a wish list for gaps in my wardrobe so I can shop with a plan.

I do have some serious wardrobe issues and they are related to my life in general. Apart from the multi size issue, I lack clothes for social occasions. A wedding? A date? A day at the beach? All of these events I'd end up wearing work clothes for. My life has been about work for far too long and my wardrobe reflects that. I guess however, if I ever get invited to a Lord of the Rings party I'm good, but that is actually rather unlikely.

It may come as a surprise, but I do know how to dress decently, it's just not a priority, or hasn't been. I'd probably have purchased a book over an item of clothing. My sister does give me her hand me downs at times and nice items as gifts but we don't really share the same style so I end up looking like her and not myself.

One of my problems is that I dress in a way that people judge me as being far more conservative than I really am. I love pencil skirts and pumps and pearls. Being judged to be conservative is not a bad thing, I mean, I do come from a fairly conservative family, but I tend to attract people who are very conservative conversationally, and we end up with not all that much in common and very liberal people, even avant garde types, surrealists, whom I would have more of a connection with, at least philosophically, ignore me entirely based upon my appearance.

I've not worked that problem out yet but I'm trying. I don't want to get a tattoo that says, I'm not as conservative as I look, as it would probably clash with my pearls but sometimes I think about it.

A French approach to dressing is more my style, a few good pieces worn often and I can do that, but I'd never look Euro Chic with my large frame. My wrists are 7 1/2 inches. I'm fine with my body, but I'm really still trying to work out how my favored classic look can also express a more bohemian type personality or at least not a die hard republican. Is there a look that says, I don't believe in freewill? Probably not.

Dunno.....clothes do communicate so much in just an instant and this Hobbit via capris look isn't helping me.

    You should post some of your favorite looks! The bohemian look is so much fun!

I love going somewhere and feeling good in my clothes. I can't wait to lose some more weight so I can wear whatever look I want. I hate catching myself in the mirror and noticing a little bra bulge or muffin top.

I worked for years as a Manager at Macy's and had to wear black. I have about twenty black suit jackets (after weeding out about twenty LOL) Now I have so much fun with color!

Someone told me to get rid of clothes in order to make room for new clothes, so that's what I'm trying to do. It's a hard project for me...

Enjoy your new app!
