20 40

Two weeks ago Friday husband and I hosted about 32 for oysters etc. and cocktails in Washington DC. Mixed company: family; all ages, graduate students, college students, lawyers, bankers, entrepreneurs, mostly Ethan’s fraternity brothers from Wake Forest.  Location: Hotel Monaco, outdoors. Occasion: Law School Commencement, Ethan.

If you google 20 40, you get a bunch of results about vision. Here we’re talking about what was worn. Oldest two daughters, both in their twenties, wore minimal, modern dresses of the same designer. Every day dress, on the short end of forty, tweed boucle and red leather.

It can be a fine line sometimes on what to wear. Like vision, it can kind of sneak up on you about what’s needed and when. 20 40, stretch printed neoprene for the twenty year olds, tweed boucle sheath dress for short end of forty.

Every day dress, 20 40.

 

back to brand

After two nights off happy to return to where the heart really is, back to brand, Worth New York.

Took the blue floral skirt from Wednesday night and added brown tank, denim shirt, brown belt and go to Chanel western riding boots, ha ha.

Yes, husband kind of comments about each new outfit but they are not really new outfits, simply new configurations of what has been worn before.

No shame in wearing things many times and photographing it too. Good clothes are meant to be worn and worn often.

So, here, every day dress, back to brand and wearing Worth New York. Don’t be afraid to wear your things often and to mix brown and blue, it works, really.

resort to ranch

For Friday morning 7:30 am question and answer session with CEO, president, and founding partners, pulled on white jeans, same blouse and belt from Wednesday night dinner outfit, and boots that were worn on Tuesday for travel day. Had half an hour to attend the session and then it was hit the road for four and half hour drive to a guest ranch outside of Greer, AZ.

The clothes had to be polished enough for a company meet and greet yet comfortable and relaxed enough for the drive to the ranch. White blouse performed well for the company look and white jeans, boots, and silver belt gave it enough of a checking out of here and going somewhere else vibe while not being inappropriate. It was Friday after all.

Really wanted to wear grey boots, probably would have been a better look, but locked myself out of the hotel room while family was still sleeping and had to go with what was put on in the dark. Oh, well, not really that big of a deal.

Every day dress pulls together a resort to ranch look by pairing pieces together that were all worn before. Use your clothes in different ways.

are you wearing the right size?

Many of my clients arrive wearing clothes that are simply too big. Yes, we all have body image issues going on, large or small, haven’t really met too many women that don’t, but, are you wearing the right size?

Take some time, check and really look at what you are wearing, disregard the size on the tag, and consult maybe with a trusted confident or professional to see if you are truly wearing the right size.

Most women, and I speak from experience here, wear, buy, and order clothing that is too large. A fitted silhouette on all figures, size 0 or 16, is truly more flattering.

Worked with my mom for two years to get her to go down from a size MD to SM. Her shape did not change. Her look was simply more by wearing clothing that was closer to her body. She is 74 and a good size 12 in skirts, sometimes 10, and pants. On top she always thought she was a MD, no, a SM looks so much better. She agrees and is now happy and more confident.

So, here is the question, are you wearing the right size? Do you feel good in your clothing? Would love to hear your thoughts…

Dress shown, Worth New York | Summer 2013 | size XP and size SM, which do you prefer? I can take the heat if you think the size XP is too tight, size PT, sold out. Wanted the dress.

Really trying to help, have seen so many women wear clothing that is simply too big for them…

Every day dress.

before the storm

Media has been all about the impending big storm, cancelled flights, school closings. So, before all the heavy outerwear comes on for the weekend, decided to go coatless yesterday.

Wednesday all black, Thursday tried for color. White, orange, red, blue. White jeans, orange silk blouse, red bracelets, blue blanket wrap instead of a coat.

While the weather report predicts stormy days ahead, the only thing I know from looking at recent media (camera for sure adds ten) is that it’s time to think about not eating cake. Anyone with me?

Have a great Friday.
