Breaking the rules, no not in a non law abiding way , but in a way that would upset the fashion police.
Today's outfit breaks two of those rules that once I would maybe have thought mattered but not any longer,
another of those joys of getting older not caring about trivial rules.
My number one rule breaker , putting gold and silver together, I know tsk.tsk. and the second wearing
different shades of black together, this one never worried me but over the years I have read this is a no-no.
Showing the silver detail on the sleeve of my coat and in my beads, the coat or long jacket , I'm not quite sure how to describe it., also has a silver fleck through the fabric. I am pairing this with my gold studded gloves .Now I know if I were a true purist the gloves would have had silver studs but I owned these and I quite like how they work together.The saying opposites attract springs to mind.
Turning my back on all those silly rules, we all know the ones , especially those that we once were supposed to embrace as we aged, is such a liberation. I know I will continue to play with my clothes as an expression of self hopefully for as long as I continue life's dance.
A little chill in the air this morning meant an outing for this hat that I purchased late last Winter.
Today I am wearing my pants from Moyuru with a black top from Paula Ryan, coat from Style Butler,
gloves from Ted Baker, hat by Max Alexander , shoes Robert Clergerie.
