Here's my Monday outfit. I love the skirt, which is from Filene's (Macy's now) Ideology line. There are thin blue stripes in it which make it fun to wear with blue.
My photographer (husband) keeps getting odd pictures of me and those are the ones I like. Because I'm odd.
Anyway, when I think "lady," I think of the beautiful, elegant, hollywood glamour movie stars of yesteryear (yes, I said yesteryear). Look at this amazing picture of Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly:
It is the epitome of lady( in image anyway) - the graceful posture, the ethereal skirts, the elegant, tasteful makeup. They command such a presence. And without abundant piercings, spiked hair, or clothing noir.
Observing people, I have decided that the way to be more ladylike is to move like a lady. Very few people walk gracefully. I would like to improve my posture and gait. Any tips? I'm pretty good with the books on my head, but it kind of leaves when they do. Maybe I'll make it a personal goal for the rest of the week. Anyone care to join?
