My version of attention-grabbing style has become more subtle over the years; it’s not longer about the entire look being over-the-top, but more of just one or two key pieces providing the “wow” factor. While out of reverence for professionalism and appropriateness, my wardrobe has certainly gotten more serious over the past six or so years, I can’t help but fall for those pieces every now and then that just feel so fashion, so exciting, and restore my sense of the power of great style.
After this trip to Japan, I believe that it’s definitely going to shift again; there’s no way that this incredibly fashionable place won’t be instrumental in influencing my looks and consideration of style going forward. I’ve been here a little over a week, and am already shifting the way I think about pairing silhouettes and balancing proportions.†
Do you have an item or two in your closet that you feel this way about? For me, it’s definitely this skirt, and the shoes; they are far from the ordinary, and wouldn’t work in an every day scenario, but that’s what so special about them, making each time I wear them quite memorable.
