Warning....this post has absolutely nothing to do with sewing. We leave tomorrow for our apartment hunting trip to Paris. That meant some serious shopping had to take place. I hate shopping for clothing...there are just so many other things I would rather be doing. Clothing shopping is endless. Always searching. It's exhausting.
I live in Alaska. Dressing up for me is putting on a clean pair of jeans and wearing my Dansco clogs! I am fortunate to be slim...I've been a regular Jazzerciser for 17 years. I can buy off the rack without fitting problems...but I still hate it!
I sometimes catch the show, "What Not to Wear." I watched a few episodes to get me inspired for shopping. Here's what I'm packing...
Black. From what I understand Parisians wear a lot of black basics. The shoes are so difficult...I haven't worn heels in years...but I did buy two pair for this trip. (Tonka helps me all day long. We are going to the boarding kennel in a couple of hours. The worst part is leaving my best friends.)
I have the prerequisite "little black dress." Black slacks that have skinny legs. A skinny black skirt.
I found two pair of black capris yesterday...I think I'll be wearing these the most. A few fun tops.
I really like these two, simple dresses.
And then just for fun...sparkly pink shoes. Finally...a pair of denim capris!
After I drop the dogs off at the kennel I will grab a pair of black flats. I was just too tired to get that last essential piece for my wardrobe. Accessories? Darn...don't have those either. Definitely not worrying about those items right now.
