When I shared my new shopping system with you in July,The Over50Feeling40 Foundational Five™
, it was received so well across the blogosphere. Many bloggers mentioned the system and our local newspaper even surprised me by running the original post in the print edition of the paper!!
Purchased this bracelet last fall during San Antonio Fashion Week!
The intention is to help me create my own personal style and to help me make fewer mistakes on the purchasing end, and it appears to have helped others as well. So, I wanted to let you know that I also ask myself the same questions when styling a look for work. Please remember, each individual determines their personal, foundational five…some bloggers even came up with seven or a different system all together. Mine just happen to be:
1. Do I feel strong, empowered in the total look?
2. Do I feel classic, sophisticated in the total look?
3. Do I feel like it flatters my body and fits appropriately?
4. Do I feel appropriately youthful in the look?
5. Does the total look feature my creativity?
Headband: Simply Vera at Kohl’s
Turquoise Hoops: Lane Bryant
Vintage Shoes: Garment Exchange ($3!)
and a touch of creativity!!
If I can answer a resounding YES to all of these questions….then it is a keeper for me. Right before I settled on this outfit….I put together three other styles, and they all three flunked the test. This one was a keeper!! My intention is to enjoy my days wearing styles I feel comfortable and confident in…so much better than regrets!!
Does anyone have personal guidelines for their work wear they would like to share????
YES!!! to all FIVE!!
