My cold, cold unfashionable legs.
I get it Californians. You can walk around all day, all night, in dresses with beautiful, glossy, tanned bare legs. I see you in the fashion blogs and in the magazines and you look great. And I’ll admit it, I’m jealous. But, you see, I live in Cleveland – it’s winter, it’s freezing, and my legs, well they just can’t always be left uncovered to face the public. So what’s a girl to do?
Tights don’t always cut it, as they tend to make more of a casual statement. And Hosiery is tricky – the wrong hosiery can ruin a perfectly good look. Do you wear sheer hoes (making a comeback thanks to Princess Kate Middleton)? Black sheer stockings (do people still use the work stockings)? Or throw caution to the wind (literally) and follow the no hoes no matter the weather trend?
So, Hallie, help – how do you solve the “I’ve got legs” problem. Because dresses and skirts are must. And my legs are a bust.
The problem with getting dressed.
How often it happens. I buy the perfect shirt, but I don’t have the right pants. I have the right pants, but not the ideal shoe. I’ve got the perfect shoe, but alas, not the right jewelry. Why does putting together a great outfit have to be so much darn work? I mean it even goes right down to the undergarments – how many times have you walked around knowing the fancy dress you bought really needs a better bra? Or the white pants, well what works under white pants anyway?
Is there a solution? Or are we all destined to fit our wardrobe together like legos, piece by piece by piece? Just pondering this as I try to figure out what to wear with the adorable new scarf I bought that doesn’t look good with a single jacket I have. Ugh.
Anybody else wonder what staple pieces will help solve the “wardrobe domino effect?” Or, do you have your own game plan to “outfitting” that I should know about? Post your wardrobe solutions and/or conundrums here and Hallie will comment/answer later this week.
