I was looking in my wardrobe the other day, and I’ve decided I’m a chameleon. I like to change my skin.... Well not my literal skin... That would be just weird. But the skin I dress in to go out into the world.
I don’t have a “signature look”. I have many. If I’m going somewhere, I will consciously ask myself, what look do I want to portray today? If I’m honest, my mood affects what clothes, or look, I will choose. Sometimes I like to be a little bit hippy bo-ho, and will wear long silk wrap around skirts, with cotton kaftans, and scarves in my hair. Other days, I want to be business chic, all trendy and neat lines. There are days when I can't give a flying hoot what's on my body, clothe, face or hair wise, and you take me as I am. Good chance I haven't looked in the mirror, other then a passing have-i-got-toothpaste-on-my-face-look.
I'm as vain as the next person, currently cursing the humidity because I would like to straighten my hair instead of sporting the Shirley temple look.. roll on cooler days!! But I'm not a slave to fashion. If I see something I like, and won't end up looking like a 42 year old woman attempting to dress in her daughters wardrobe, then I will purchase something that is on trend.
Am I the only one? Do you have a “signature look”? Or do you throw on the first thing that you pick up?
