Style Dials, Tea Cups And Daffodils, Or, Saturday Morning at 9:10am

Happy Thoughts Daffodils by @patricia van essche

It’s time for the quarterly Privilege blog break. But before I go, one more thought about that Thursday switcheroo. Most of you guys liked most of the the outfit Sue chose – but most of you also hated the Helmut Lang shirt. Here’s the thing.

Once I had put on skinny jeans, moto boots, and a leather jacket with substantial lapels, in my style world I was already so far out there a see-through gaping shirt felt like no big deal.

Ain’t that a kick in the pants? By which I mean, our internal style dials are all, um, uniquely calibrated. Good to spin them now and and then, whether or not we return to the same levels after we’re done.

I’ll be back here the week of April 1. Which I know is a Tuesday, but somehow April 1 sounds more hopeful than the week of March 31. I will leave you with one post from the Hostess of the Humble Bungalow on her sweet collection of teacups, and one from PVE (the artist Patricia van Essche) on a specific joy of daffodils.

(correction. Week of April 7th. See, I really need the break, for your sakes:). Thanks Wendy!)

All the best to you and yours.

  • I actually loved the shirt. It took the look out of the expected. I like a little danger ;)

  • Wow I think you look GREAT! Love the skinny jeans, moto boots, long hair down….all good. You can pull it off! The jacket is cool. The shirt unnerved me. I wouldn’t be brave enough.
    Well done! Sally

  • Enjoy the much needed break, it’s only healthy. I am happy to see that I can finally leave comments – tried a few weeks ago, but for some reason the comment section wasn’t here… Just my luck, basically. :)

  • You are doing great, your style is my dream style. It’s like reading my own mind. Even if I am almost 40, but I would want to get on my moto boots too for a ride! Thank you for sharing with us and being honest!

  • I, for the record, also liked the shirt. See you when you get back!
