Twinkle toes

I have officially given up on the idea that a capsule wardrobe would be in any way right for me. I had three conversations this year that convinced me:

  1. The first time I met Julie she was wearing a shirt with a Jack-o-lantern on it. I don’t remember her exact words when we were discussing capsule wardrobes but it was something along the lines of, “I like to dress too weird for that.” Same girl, same. (I have literally the same shirt that she was wearing at the time.)
  2. I’ve run into stylist Marisa from DC Style Factory at a few events and I adore chatting with her, so I thought if anyone was to do a closet audit for me, she would be the one. While I may still need help with that at some point, she told me that a capsule wardrobe is not for me and that I have too much of a funky style for that. At the time, I was wearing a little mixed pattern situation. Nothing too crazy- prep with an edge.
  3. After explaining a capsule wardrobe to Kendall, his response simply was, “but you have a Popsicle dress.”

The man is not wrong. And he is actually really good at styling me. He likes me in grey and does not think ruffles are flattering. He’s not afraid to tell me when something doesn’t look right, but encourages me to have fun with my style. He did RULL GOOD this Christmas- a gorgeous Karl Lagerfeld coat, a great purse + wallet, a few graphic shirts (including the one in this post)… he just spoiled me. Let’s leave it at that. The present he was most excited to give me were my gold chucks. I could not wait to wear them, so I’m thrilled that my firm has casual week all week. If you’re looking to order a pair of your own, keep in mind that Converse usually is sold in men sizes. I wear a 6.5 women and 4 men (and kids?). I’m not sure at all how shoe size conversion works so you may want to try them on in person. I also linked 10 other metallic kicks under $100.
