Help! I’m out of ideas right now.
C’mon girls, what do you want to tackle? What thorny fashion questions should we explore? I need some fresh material for the new year!
Truth be told, I’ve just been a little light on the writing altogether this past month. Hence the fewer posts and the addition of vlogs to December. But I’ll manage to get back, and in the meantime I need your fashion issues or findings to cover on Friday – send ‘em my way!
Until then, we’re covering a very light topic: how to inject a little joy in your wardrobe.
Do you ever buy an item that just downright makes you happy? Well, I’ve run across a few recently and I thought I’d feature them here. Even in professional settings you can incorporate them subtly.
I just bought this seriously happy sweater on sale at Talbot’s over the holidays and it does just make me smile. All these happy colors. And if you partner the sweater with a blazer and a pair of slacks, it’s perfectly appropriate for work. Look how happy this outfit becomes when featured with a yellow blazer! (They have several fun, whimsical sweaters on sale right now.)
Half of what ModCloth has featured in its store makes me happy. Their shoes are sheer joy! I got adorable purple fox flats (my kids love and I only wear them on the weekends or Fridays) which made me smile, but they have several pair that infuse that kind of happiness into the piece. From foxes in red polka dots to fuchsia wedges, their shoes will make you smile!
This scattered steps necklace brings me joy for reasons other than how beautiful and colorful it is – it’s from Noonday Collection! Noonday does such good – in their words, “Your fashion sense can now restore dignity to abandoned women in Ethiopia, empower communities in Ecuador, and create business opportunities for Ugandans.” If that doesn’t bring you joy when you put it on, what will?
So how about you? What makes you happy to wear? And what are your fashion dilemmas for 2015?
