We all know that when we look good, we feel good. Which is why so many people (myself included) truly struggle through winter. Someday, I will fulfill my dream of packing up my clothes, shoes, bags and jewels - and Mr. Darling, of course - and move South, preferably to sunny Southern California, but until that day comes, I will rely on the old faithful fashionista saying, "When in doubt, wear black."
This was the outfit I finally came up with... - black cigarette pants, black three-quarter sleeve blouse with a ruffle around the neck, extra-long gold chain earrings and cream ankle booties - and I am happy to say that, in the end, I did feel good and I think I ended up looking good. I threw a vintage wool camisole under my blouse for extra warmth and I made my peace with falling back on black. We all want to be colorful and creative, but it's winter in Fashion Rehab. And with that double-whammy, I am doing the best I can.
