How do you get dressed in the morning?
It’s a question that comes up, time and time again – and there is no right answer to it. Unfortunately, we’re not blessed with the computer facilities of Cher Horowitz (although, now that I mention it, why aren’t we?) and …
It’s a question that comes up, time and time again – and there is no right answer to it. Unfortunately, we’re not blessed with the computer facilities of Cher Horowitz (although, now that I mention it, why aren’t we?) and have to work these things out for ourselves.
Can you believe that Clueless was released in 1995? That is, 16 years ago?!! Also, upon viewing this segment, it occurs to me that actresses nowadays are much skinnier than they were then. Do you think, if Hollywood made a movie today about young, rich kids in Beverly Hills, they wouldn’t have fake tans, nails, surgery, blown out hair . . . ? We are living in frightening times.
Personally, I start by wondering what I’m doing that day, which often determines the shape of what I’m going to wear. Do I need to wear heels? If so, I’m probably going to go for a dress (as heels + jeans on me = upside-down triangle). Do I need to cycle? If so, my dress can’t be tight, and I can rule out any pencil or mini skirts. Am I going to the office, meaning minimal cleavage and office-appropriate skirt length? Or am I going to something “fashion-y” where I might just need to look as if I have a clue, in which case I usually go for something quite new and – shudder – “on-trend”?
You’ll see that there’s more madness than method to my routine. How about you? How do you decide? While you’re thinking, here’s a sweet video by one of my favourite style / lifestyle / baby bloggers, Jen Lula. I’m not in a relationship, I don’t have a baby and I don’t much care for group activities, craft, religion or cookery, so you can take it from me that Jen just has that special something that keeps me coming back for more.
