Keep the Prints

Scarf, Top, Jeans:  Hot Mama
Shoes:  Target

Thank goodness fall is on it's way.  Summer clothing is not my thing.  And if I see one more sheer, chiffony, strappy (or strapless), shapeless, impractical shirt...I might just dial up Mark Jacobs - or Anna Wintour - or Mary Kate Olson - or whoever the heck determines what is "trendy" and tell them to please, just stop it.  Keep the prints, loose the silhouettes.  I do not need another dolman or bat-wing sleeve in my closet.  Maybe for the rest of my life.  Amen.

What I DO want is an animal motif sweater in a fun color.  The animal should be a Pug, naturally.  Less than $100, please.

What I DO want are more polka dots.  More chartreuse green, whether or not it looks good on me.  More structured shirts that accommodate narrow shoulders AND boobs.  More washable, snag-proof fabrics.  It's a tall order, I know.

So while the fashion moguls come up with tops that don't make me want to pitch a fit, I will invest in denim.  I continue to embrace color.  Printed denim is even more fun.  I applaud skinny jeans, boyfriend jeans, and their delightful offspring = the skinny boyfriend.  Keep up the good work here, people.

Ya, strappy is not cool at all. Another fashion look I have a problem with is when everything looks like a maternity top... nothing but smocked, tie in the back, way too cutesie for a 50 something year old girl. It's as though some styles are forced upon us because every store you walk into has the same style. I tend to turn around and walk out. ick.

You look fab as always!
