Happy Tuesday, everyone. Let’s look at a Would You Wear It: Floral and Pink challenge.
Barbie made “pink” the color of summer. It has been everywhere in various shades and styles…which makes it perfect for Would You Wear It?
I saw this display recently in Nordstrom and really wanted to open a discussion here about the styling.
This is very high end clothing…top designer VINCE…the top, for example, retails at $445.
I am sharing this because I do not want the price to be part of the discussion…I want to talk about the style of the display.
So, with all that in mind, let me ask you to fully explain why you would or would not wear this outfit.
I believe this could be a really helpful discussion and thought process.
WOULD YOU WEAR IT: FLORAL AND PINK
Something different this round of Would You Wear It is that I am giving my opinions this time.
Previously, I did not…because I did not want to influence what anyone thought.
But, this time, I want to be a part of the discussion…of course, feel free to disagree with me…I want to hear what everyone really thinks.
Sometimes how we feel about clothing is influenced by our past.
Stacy and Clinton on What Not to Wear use to chide women who did this and say…GET OVER IT!…move on.
However, that is not as easy as it sounds.
When I saw this display, I immediately thought of my mother. This is an outfit she would have worn over 60. She often looked like this in less expensive clothing.
And I never liked the look on her….long pastel floral tops and knit pastel pants.
If I were to wear this, it would age me considerably…right or wrong, I would feel older in it.
Of course, it does not meet my style adjectives or colors…but it is more than that. I just believe it to be aging….even in high priced items.
Now, I do think that the right woman can wear florals and the color pink…it depends on the fit and style of the garments.
If the blouse was paired with a denim, slim fit, I would see it in a different light. I am reacting to the whole outfit in the display.
If you also think the look is aging, how would you style it to be more youthful?
That is my opinion, given with an open mind to hear what you think….WOULD YOU WEAR IT??
WOULD YOU WEAR IT: ONE MORE
I also saw this skirt on the Banana Republic Factory website. Where you can find current clothing at great prices.
This is the PLEATED MIDI SKIRT.
It is a very unusual design, but I would actually try this one on in the green color, Waimea Olive…looks like a lovely color.
I would want to see the fit, but I just might wear this one. It has that creative vibe I like.
So, if you like, tell us also what you think about this garment….WOULD YOU WEAR IT?
Thank you so much for joining in…I cannot wait to hear your thoughts…and will join in off and on today.
Also, as I mentioned Sunday, I am going to take tomorrow off on the blog…but never fear, the news will pop up from time to time…for now, join me as we all strive to
