Finding a style is a process of trying things out and seeing if they fit with how you feel about where you are in your everyday life, what makes you feel good, what will give you confidence. Not everyone is about heels all the time, and there a few among us with either the bodies or wallets of the Victoria Secret models. I think we all look for role models for being advocates of fashion at any age. Diane Keaton and Annette Bening are two of my favourites.
I watched recently a movie with Annette Bening called The Face of Love. What a beautiful woman! She has eyes that crinkle when she smiles, and while I could be wrong, she does not appear to have had ‘work’ done to her face to prevent the progress of aging. What I enjoyed throughout the movie was noticing the elements she wove into her look: her scarves, her boat-necked tops, her rings. Oh, her rings, I love observing how some women can effortlessly pull off wearing silver rings on the middle finger of a hand, and know how to tie a scarf so it flows just so, and never seems to droop or become misshapen. The layering of necklaces also intrigue me. Knowing how one necklace will compliment another, and having that eye for detail for getting it right is something that I really admire. If any of you have pictures you would like to share on your own personalized looks, I would love to post them with your comments on Stonecrop Sister!
Hair is another feature that creates a person’s signature style. Whether you decide you look best with hair that is short, mid-length or long, or decide to pull it back and to show off the clean lines of your face and neck, your choice du jour can become the one element that pulls your look together for that day.
Who can forget Keri Russell’s hair in Felicity? It was her trademark style and many of us wanted those beautiful flowing tresses that seemed so effortless. I enjoy people watching and am always on the look out for how a woman does their hair. It can make or break a look.
Signature Fashion pieces can be the key to bringing some snap to your look for the day! I love this purse, and these Hermes Sandals are on my if-I-win-the-lottery wish list. Simple and elegant, they are timeless in their design. Enjoy the hunt for that perfect mid-summer outfit!
