Personal Style Outfit Post-Lady in Coral

Tuesday, December 13, 2011

Because I'm "dressed up" almost all the time, I love to take the phrase bumming it to a serious level when I'm running errands on the weekends. Usually, this means I'm wearing my old law school sweatshirt with a pair of ultra comfy but highly inappropriate flouncy and flanneled PJ bottoms to the supermarket, dry cleaners, and occasionally, even to the mall-which I know is entirely ironic. However, after recently re-watching The Joy Luck Club and admiring the characters' retro glam and ladylike styles, I've been inspired and motivated to look and dress like a lady at all times. I realized that sometimes it can be just as cathartic to transform from the OUTSIDE in as it is the other way around. So, I wore this outfit to the bank and the post office a few Saturdays ago. And I felt great!
