Andrea Linett's style is very different from mine and what inspires her is not always what would inspire me, but it made me feel much better about the amount of time and energy I put into how I look. It's pretty well known among my friends that I'm into style/fashion and sometimes it worries me. Does my obsession with handbags make me appear shallow and materialistic? Maybe it does, but you know what? I like what I like. I care about how I present myself to the world and I care about how the world sees me.
And, I suspect if you're reading this you probably feel the same. (DEEP ADRIEN. SO DEEP.) We're all friends here and we like clothes and stuff, right? And we want to look pulled-together? And maybe be one of the women from Linett's book, the one who turns someone's head because we look so freaking awesome? God, yes.
So, I'm going to do a little series about what I think is important when it comes to stuff. By "stuff" I mean the things that shape my personal style and how I find it immensely satisfying to have an item that perfectly fits the picture I have in my head. That THING that really makes an outfit. Obtainable joy.
Now, obviously there are other factors at work - how you wear something can be just as important as what you wear and fit is really important. Also, accessories are great for making a basic outfit really interesting blah blah blah. But, I decided to just pick three things that I find most worthy of obsession and go with that:
|MBMJ Hillier Hobo|
|Frye Melissa back zip|
|Banana Republic classic trench|
