Oh girls, today is so much fun! I love the ideas coming in this fall – keep ’em coming.
Today’s post started with a simple email from my best friend which included a link and a “WHAT?!?!?” I will not tell you which of theitems featured below it is until next week. Today is for your opinion. Your perspective. Your vote.
Below I have highlighted items volunteered from an assortment of women in response to an inquiry I made: What fashion item do you wonder about? What items do you think, is this a good idea?
I need YOUR vote. Time to sound off and flex your fashion muscles. You can either vote in the blog comments or on Twitter or on Facebook – knock yourself out.
Here’s what you need to know when you vote: Either vote yes, for those items women should embrace, or no, for items women should avoid, on some or all of the items (you can list the item description or number). If you vote yes for an item, make sure you offer any conditions on that yes (yes, but not for work; yes, but only if you’re 35 or younger; yes, but only if you have X type of figure).
Next week, I will summarize the votes and the commentary, and my best friend and I will join you with some witty repartee about each trend.
Shoes made up the subject of almost half of the questions which came in, so here is our first category of nominees – SHOES!
1. Booties: Particularly with a focus on a peep toe bootie or leopard print bootie.
General bootie –
Peep toe bootie –
Animal print bootie –
2. Over the knee boots.
3. Novelty pumps.
There were also several denim questions:
4. Boyfriend jeans. (And related, cuffed jeans.)
5. Skinny jeans if you don’t have a super lean figure.
6. Distressed denim.
Finally, there were a series of other wardrobe nominees:
9. Pencil skirts on non pencil figures.
(There was also the reappearance of rompers and jumpers, but y’all know how strongly I feel about those already!)
Friends, it was ALL I COULD DO NOT TO THROW MY OPINION OUT THERE. So many opinions. So little time. But I will bite my tongue, so just steel yourself for all of the good and all of the bad and all of the commentary next week.
So vote! Yes. Sometimes but never for work. Or heck no! It’s election week after all (at least it was in Houston). This is your chance to inform the fashion choices of women. Inquiring minds want to know – what do you think??
(And what did I miss? What’s your burning question about “does this work?”)
