I found this fun blog the other day, Fashion for Lunch, or rather I think she found me first. Anyway, her blog caught my attention because she will often post a picture of her outfit for the day. This is not a traditional full body shot. She takes a pic of her upper half . . .
sort of like this. That’s me by the way, not her. As her blog is about fashion, her clothing selections are probably a little more cool than mine. That being said, she made me think about my decorating class and looking to your closet for inspiration when it comes to color.
I started to think that maybe you could look to your closet for inspiration beyond just color. I know I am wearing a peacock, snap shirt above, and though I don’t intend to decorate with peacocks (for right now) I think the shirt does say something about my style.
I love all things western. The snaps on this shirt are reminiscent of the cowboy shirts from the 1960s and 1970s. I have always liked the color brown. I think it looks good with my skin tone. While, I don’t plan on painting anything brown right now, I think that the brown color speaks to the part of me that likes a simple pallet.
As for the peacocks, well they, and the shirt, are retro and I love to use recycled, reused, or reinvented things whenever I can. Plus, they are a little funky too and I find myself lately stepping outside of the box not only with some fashion choices but certainly with my house: hang a window for wall art or paint my dining room chairs red!
