Oh how I love to be all out wild and bold when it comes to dressing. But that’s all relative, right? Some would think that I’m maybe a bit too adventurous! Some people say to me, “ONLY YOU could get away with that!” But again, everything is relative!
I’ve noticed just recently on Instagram, women my age and older, wearing much bolder things than I ever would. I would maybe wear what they have on one piece at a time, but not all together. So when I see women like that, I don’t feel bold at all, but rather conservative!
THIS DRESS….. was brought too me, while I was shopping, to try! Dirk, who works at my Anthropologie, comes up with the best things for me “to try”, and they seem to ALWAYS BE A HIT! I don’t know that I would ever have picked out this dress on my own. It’s a little bit out there, and maybe just a bit off in what I would consider my colors. But….. I tried it on for him.
I LOVE IT! My husband loved it too, and that even surprised me a bit, because I feel like he leans a little bit to the classic styles. But OH MY HEAVENS, it was AND IS so much fun! I would also wear it with some nude heels and fishnets to lighten it up a bit, or maybe even some black tall heeled boots and a black hat!!!
Would you wear something this bold? What is YOUR BOLD? I love to be different and unique, but I also have to feel good in something. Remember that confidence is an absolute necessary part to a look! You have to have it in order for it to all work!
This dress will be much shorter on a taller woman. I’m only 5′ 1.5″ and it hits me right at my knee. A taller person could actually wear this with some skinny jeans and it would look AWESOME! Or what about some fantastic OTK boots (these are KILLER and FANTASTIC SALE) and tights for those with long legs?!!
I styled it with some wine colored tights and a pair of wine colored fishnets over the top. My shoes are vintage Anthro, but I believe everyone should have this color in their closets. The deep wine color can really be treated as a neutral!
Here are some super BOLD pieces that I could have some fun with. As I alluded above, I’m not sure I would wear ALL BOLD, just a piece or maybe two, with the rest on the simple side!
So I would encourage any person…. to be all out wild and bold with their style! Whatever that is for you, is fine. What it really means is to step outside of your box and see how much fun you can have with fashion!
Have a great rest of your week friends!
