Sunday I stopped into my local Anthropologie for a small gift and looked for things to try on. After lunch with a girlfriend yesterday, I stopped into a larger Anthropologie and wandered around. I spent a total of 2 1/2 hours walking this major retailer’s store, picking things up and wondering if they would look good on me.
In the end, I never entered the dressing room because nothing looked like me. I loved the lotions and home wares but the clothes were simply not my style.
This is my style.
Simple shapes in subtle colors with classic patterns.
My wrap has the same shade of aqua as my tank top and necklace. The soft gray of my jacket is repeated in the velvet backing of my wrap.
As I was waiting for the elevator at the end of my failed shopping excursion, a lady asked, “You look terrific, where did you get your outfit?”
A lightbulb went off and I realized as hard as I try, bohemian fashion is just not my style. Anthropologie has the most fabulous selection of boho, creative items for women of ages. They just aren’t for me.
I love unique clothes, which Anthropologie carries, but I prefer a more tailored shape in sleeker fabrics and less pattern. I am overwhelmed by voluminous clothes that show no body shape. Too much pattern feels overdone on me.
The bohemian and creative dresser can find fabulous looks at Anthropologie…it’s just not for me.
See you tomorrow for Style Tip of the month with Pam Lutrell.
Have a great day and wear what suits you best!
