Elegance Revisited is now 1 year old...Can you believe it? Time flies, it's been an interesting journey and other such clichés aside, I thought I should do a 'retrospective', to showcase some of my favourite looks.
Looking back, I can clearly see that I have a tendency to repeat certain types of outfits. However, I don't see it as a problem. Quite the contrary: I'd like to think I have a clear point of view in terms of how I choose to present myself to the world. That can't be bad.
You see, deep down, I'm a creature of habit: I strive for constancy. Yet, I have two homes in two countries, several jobs, irregular income and an often hectic schedule. So, the fact that I can pull myself together to create some constancy in my life in the form of an identifiable, individual 'look' is extremely comforting. It's like a sartorial expression of my sense of identity: my life may be chaotic, but I know who I am. Call it a security blanket, sort of...
So, here you have it, some of my favourite posts, or my most typical outfits:
But I love the cape / wrap / blanket scarf even more... After all, I have the exact same wrap in 3 colours:
I know what you're thinking: what I really love is that Breton-stripe top... I can't promise you won't see it (or something else in blue and white stripes) again...
I usually prefer a sophisticated, polished look: (original post)
But I do have a dark(er) side, too: every now and then my inner Rock Chick takes over:
According to my photographer, a.k.a. husband, the best outfits combine polished sophistication with a bit of rock and roll attitude: (Professor M's favourite post)
I would also like to thank you all for stopping by, reading, commenting, and especially for coming back. After all, without you this blog would not have survived so long... like most of my hobbies, no doubt I would have given it up by now if it wasn't for your loyalty. Thank you.
