Lately my fashion has been lacking (really for like the last 2 years!). I just haven’t been able to get my style back since I lost the initial weight. I like the styles from around 2005 dark or bright colors, structured colors, slimming waist line, lower waist jeans. It seems like everything the last few years has been very ruffly, light, pale, vintagy and just not me.
Part of the problem is I am always coming from either the pool or the gym. A lot of my life ends up being in workout clothes or swimsuits. I haven’t quite figured that out yet. Plus, I work from home so sometimes the motivation to have real fashion just isn’t there. Especially when I don’t like the fashions anyway.
One thing I have developed over the years is a little jewelry collection. Nothing expensive but a lot of pieces that have meaning. I wear them and I feel they express who I am at that moment. They remind me of who I am and help me get through hard times.
I prefer necklaces that are longer (around 18′) and that have one distinct feature so I can wear it with many outfits. The nice thing about necklaces is that they always fit no matter what size I am 🙂
Here are some of my favorites (all of these I got over time and most under $20)
Anyway, what collections do you have? Why are they special to you? I know its just a material possession but if I lost my bird necklace I would be devastated. I love it.
