I am pleased to have a lease on life that allows me to change. I've decided that changing my mind about what I want stylewise has been good. I am not limited to one style. I look at the style blogs and I've had to remind myself of a few things. First, I hate panty hose. That means no matter how cute tights look on other people, I need to quell the impulse to buy some for me. They feel like panty hose.
Second, I hate things that bind. Hence, no skinny anything. I hate things that feel heavy, and so no scarves. And so on. But I am drawn to the fashions that have scarves and have lots of rings and bracelets. So I'm working on ways to add these things without feeling overwhelmed by them. I love the look of the "boyfriend" watch. But I don't wear heavy arm candy because of arthritis. I actually have a watch on in the above pic. Though to tell the truth, I usually don't care what time it is. I'm beyond having to meet a schedule. So the watch is just a glorified bracelet.
I have mentioned Charming Charlies as a great place for accessories. They have the boyfriend watches and I have been tempted so many times. I have to tell myself no. And I'm not good at that. But, it does give me more money for other things. My newest wish is for the new smoking loafers. I lucked out at a Marti and Liz and found a pair in studded black in my size. I've been wearing them so much I think they will wear out before the end of Autumn. They are 9 West so should last. But I am crazy about them.
Also on the wish list for Fall is a Navy Blazer. Still looking. I don't know why I want navy since I have so many things in black but I love the navy with tans. And I think it's a classy combo. I'm looking for some fairly large and nice gold hoops too. I suppose I'm pleased that the list isn't very long. Sometimes I find myself feeling antsy and wanting to get out and just shop. If I had the funds, Oh, the damage I could do.
