I find myself wanting to talk about fashion more often in here. To talk about topics central to being a woman in today’s world apart from fashion too.
I will recommend again the book Nothing to Wear? A 5-Step Cure for the Common Closet. In it Jesse Garza and Joe Lupo walk women through the steps of discovering our style and dressing in a harmonious way.
Julie Morgenstern is quoted in the book after the two consultants gave her a makeover:
“Wearing clothes that nurture and embrace me is a way to love and care for my body.”
I couldn’t have said this better.
I checked this book out of the library and have been reading it over and over for its sage advice. At some point I’m going to buy a copy of the book.
At 53 I reckon with not wanting to wearing stilettos and a cleavage-bearing mini skirt.
In the September issue of Bazaar jeweler Gaia Repossi talks about gender fluidity and fashion choices.
Perhaps you can relate to thinking that you fall down in terms of what is accepted in the mainstream?
Using Nothing to Wear? to find your style and having the courage to flaunt it could be the antidote to feeling sub-par in mid-life.
I say too: having the courage to flout convention in a sartorial or other way shouldn’t be frowned on.
Am I the only woman who has hit mid-life with the sudden desire to remodel her self and her life and her clothes?
I want to talk more about mid-life matters in the coming blog entries.
Cleaning out your closet and restocking it with a few stylish pieces could be the start of feeling better.
This is not frivolous. It’s also not the only worthy goal at mid-life.
Coming up I’ll talk about other things I think might strike a cord in readers.
