Saturday, May 25th, worn to the dance party after the Swing and Balboa (it's a YouTube link) workshops, New Look 6587, plus my new waterfall cardigan made with McCall's 6084:
Sunday, May 26th, again with the Thermal sweater plus my now-too-baggy pants from Simplicity 2656:
Monday, May 27th, photo-bombed by the cats. I'm wearing all RTW except the white top, which is from New Look 6104.
Tuesday, May 28th, is all RTW except the red linen skirt which is Simplicity 2367:
On Wednesday, May 29th, I wore another version of the New Look 6104 top. I finish work earlier on Wednesdays so I was actually able to take a photo outside in the sunlight!
Thursday, May 30th is the day I officially ran out of steam on this challenge. I wore all RTW except a handknit scarf. Major cheater day!! This is my new People Tree dress that I was talking about. ;)
Interestingly, on the 28th I had a conversation with one of my students about our "signature colors" because she wears orange a lot as an accent color and I wear red/maroon. And then we talked about the public styles of various female French politicians/female companions of French politicians, such as Carla Bruni-Sarkozy and Valerie Trierweiler. We both agreed that Carla Bruni, especially for an ex-model, cultivated an image that was a little too goody-goody for us. And without commenting on either's personality/politics, we both prefer Trierweiler's sartorial style. Having that though, style of dress can convey philosophical values...
Here are some examples I found on Google:
To be fair to Carla Bruni, she does wear pants too. But she was often seen in outfits as above and they are simply too schoolgirlish for my taste. Please don't tell me that I dress like her. If so, I am in denial.
Is it very silly to be discussing these female public figures chiefly because of their clothes????
Have a great week-end everybody!
