Depending on where you were educated or what you look up, there are 6 or 7 distinct "styles" that have surfaced in fashion over the years that go hand in hand often times with people's personalities. For women, there can be a complete lack of confidence in what they like and what they believe others to like and thus turn away from the things they feel natural and comfortable in. Have you ever seen that man or woman who is constantly tugging at their clothes? Pushing a sleeve back up, tugging on jacket sleeves; someone in a constant state of fidget but only with their wardrobe? They were definitely not wearing their style or proper fit for them, or else the ensemble would have just melded and become a part of them. It happens to us all through our lives. That one dress that you just had to have, or the one shirt and you get it home and realize there is nothing in the rest of your closet to go with it, but you wear it anyway and you spend the rest of your day or evening feeling self conscious. I don't know about you, but being even MORE self conscious is NOT something I want to deal with, so I try and make sure those splurge purchases happen infrequently. Today I wanted to tease you a bit and show off a truly "Classic" ensemble with its crisp tailored lines and geometric prints that could have been created in the 50's or 60's with a little dramatic flair!
You only have four more days to go check out all the fantastic offerings at this round of Sneak Peek including these adorable high-waisted shorts from Awear. These are a perfect example of a "classic" design with the high waist, short legs and simple geometric pattern with small buttons reminiscent of beach shorts from the 50's. Being the bohemian I am, I jumped ahead to the 60's with the bolder pattern and small notched collar for the top, which continued the "classic" look with its straight lines in form and design. That is one of the keys to always looking polished, by the way, keeping your pieces to the same style, and or pattern. If you think your hair is too "soft" for the edgy ensemble you have on; or the jewelry a bit too heavy looking, trust your instincts, you are probably right. Once I had everything put together I decided it was a Rock-a-billy kind of night and headed out on the grid to find some entertainment. I happened to wander to a sim based on Nashville and there were entertainers all over and lots of little niches to take pics and everyone was incredibly friendly. Of course being the scatter brain that I am at times, I completely forgot to LM the location and for some odd reason my teleport history isn't working this week. I will be on the search again soon so I can take a little more time and wander around and maybe stick around for a performance.
