Summer Soup

Diane Pollack

 

It sure has felt soupy lately!


As we come into muggy August and many people are taking a vacation, I thought I would just throw you a few light tidbits. 

3 Easy Ways to get dressed quickly AND feel great

1) Lay out your outfits the night before. (Ok, I know you knew this, but maybe you just needed to hear it again.)

2) Have go-to outfits that you know you love and in a pinch can throw on.

3) If you are wearing an outfit and decide that you really like it, take a picture of it. This can then become a great go-to outfit.


So we have been talking about age and style and I always want to shout out to Bazaar Magazine "Sorry, you got this wrong".

 They have a section called "Fabulous at every age".

So far, so good.

Here is the thing. Sometimes, I look at the younger ages and I think "how matronly" or "I love it" and sometimes I  prefer pieces they have slotted in the much older age brackets. The truth is, what they are saying is very misleading and here is why.

So what they do is take a celebrity in each age category (which I think is great) and then they choose some pieces that are a similar style to what she is wearing.

The problem is that the style (in this case edgy/sexy for 20's and feminine/retro/ethereal for 30's) has nothing to do with their age nor would it necessarily be the style for everybody else in their twenties and thirties.  

So kudos to Bazaar for being age inclusive and showing celebrity at all ages. But how absolutely ludicrous to suggest that everyone in that 10 year age bracket should have even a remotely similar style.
