instinct stink

"Style is primarily a matter of instinct." - Bill Blass, 1922-2002, designer.

Ironically that was the quote of the day on my page-a-day fashion calendar.

I usually feel pretty good about my outfits, even though most of you might consider my clothes a little quirky.

I wear a lot of black and vintage [fancy word for thrift store] boots and do things like layer necklaces and rings.

I have some clothes in my wardrobe that I don't often wear or especially like. I feel bad that I don't wear them so occasionally I'll try again.

Today was one of those days. Black corduroy, long jumper paired with over-the-knee socks and my patient leather Dansko shoes. I felt silly and awkward all day. And I had to keep hiking up those damn socks.

Add a vintage coat and my brief case and the ensemble had crazy written all over it.

Back to the clothes I know and love.
