|Would you wear this?|
I read a blog for a little bit about a woman whose boyfriend told her that nearly all of her clothes were hideous. She said he didn't understand fashion. I say, to heck with fashion. If I'm getting dressed, I want my man to enjoy looking at me. After all, if he's not looking at me, who's he going to be looking at instead???
Fashion begs the question of who you're trying to impress (in my mind). I like to look put together, and I have a personal style. It isn't fashionable, and most of my favorite staples come from Ann Taylor. I like to buy things I can wear for 20 years without feeling dated. Most trends are so utterly beyond me. Sometimes I try just for fun, and I feel so not me, that even if it looks good, I don't look good because I feel awkward about it.
So you won't really see "What I wore" posts from me. I hesitate to say never, but I have no intentions of posting pictures of me in slacks with a tank top and cardigan... because that's what I wear pretty much every day. Yes, boring. But I also know that my boyfriend isn't embarrassed to be seen with me in public. Big bonus in my opinion.
How do you feel about fashion? Do you bother to even pay attention?
