Book: REBEL CHIC
Happy Thursday, ladies! I want to share with you my recent encounter with Katherine Hepburn Style.
I so wish I had a picture of the encounter, but it was not possible…because it was in the surgery center on Monday morning.
I immediately noticed a woman…seemed older than I am…with long, soft, dark curls similar to the way Katherine Hepburn often wore her hair in early movies.
Her Katherine Hepburn style stood out in the sleepy, early morning surgery center.
It was the androgynous style, Katherine Hepburn made famous…she put the stamp on women wearing pants.
The woman I encountered with Katherine Hepburn style looked exactly like the actress in flowy, long wide trousers, with a smart unconstructed blazer in the same color.
She also wore a chunky heel on a short bootie.
It took me a moment as I watched the woman to realize it was Katherine Hepburn style I was observing.
Now, I want to order the book REBEL CHIC and return to that time. I have never read about the actress and her style.
AN ENCOUNTER WITH KATHERINE HEPBURN STYLE: THE LOCATION
The woman sporting Katherine Hepburn Style stood out from the others wearing pajamas and athletic wear.
I could have titled this post….TEAM OVERDRESSED IN THE SURGERY CENTER.
I can completely understand going for surgery in your most comfortable, relaxed clothing. I really am not criticizing anyone for that.
But, this woman and I chose to be on team overdressed and take it up a notch.
I was captivated with her style the moment I saw her in the waiting room.
My reasons were to do anything that would help me face this emotional and physical second surgery with confidence and joy.
I did not want to dress as I would feel going out!
Of course, I do not know the reasons she dressed in her Katherine Hepburn style, but she was by far the chicest lady in the waiting room.
For me, dressing my best (which some consider overdressing) helps my state of mind immensely…no matter the situation.
I do watch women over 50 wherever I go and pay attention to what they are wearing.
I snapped this photo last summer of a waiting room Team Overdressed member…she looked lovely as she waited to see her doctor.
Her striped, linen pants caught my eye immediately.
AN ENCOUNTER WITH KATHERINE HEPBURN STYLE: WHERE TO FIND IT
I do believe there is one retailer at this moment that offers the Katherine Hepburn style in clothing.
Here are a few pieces to show you what I am talking about which speak Katherine Hepburn Style to me….
Katherine Hepburn Style is also founded upon the woman herself…I know she is controversial to some. But I really like this quote and her strength and stamina….
“I believe there is nothing we can know except that we should be kind to each other and do what we can for each other,” Katherine Hepburn.
Your personal style includes what is on the inside as well as what is on the outside.
Are there other fans of Katherine Hepburn style here today? Please share if you are.
