You don’t wear white before Memorial Day and never after Labor Day. That is the fashion rule that I grew up hearing and abiding by for as long as I can remember. There are many reasons this “rule” started, however, they no longer exist. It is no longer taboo to wear white after Labor Day, in fact it is down right fashionable.
This is what I wore on Thursday, a navy blazer from JCP, a plaid shirt with pretty rhinestone buttons from Old Navy, and a pair of white jeans from Versona. I must admit, I felt a little twing when I put on the white jeans. In my little neck of the woods, we are not quite as up on the latest fashions like cities like New York or Paris are. I was a little afraid one of our customers would point out my fashion mistake. I was definitely on the look out for the “Fashion Police” to come and arrest me at any time. While no one commented on my daringness, neither did they compliment me. Oh well, at least the jewelry was cute.
It’s kind of hard to see, but I have on a couple bracelets that my friend and co-worker made for me out of coins. The necklace, which doesn’t show up, is from Artistic Icing, it is one of my favorites and it goes with everything. And if you look really hard, like with a magnifying glass, you can see my earrings. They match one of the bracelets, and are made from two pennies each.
Maybe as this blog progresses, I’ll get better at taking pictures of the items I intend to mention. Or maybe I will just have a disclaimer on every posts that say, “this article may cause squinting”.
