The Outfit: How to: Say that you are at a store and spot a skirt that goes with a totally matching top, like a leopard print skirt with a leopard blouse. Don’t buy the whole outfit because that is old fashioned, leave it for your grandma. The older generation also believed that you have to match your purse with each outfit, like matchy matchy, that’s a long gone idea though. You never have to buy a complete outfit. If you do, just don’t wear it together. Wearing the complete outfit is too stuffy and it’s just boring, which is not chic at all. Your style should look carefree and simple. You might think it looks safe to keep it matching, but it will really just look like you don’t know what you’re doing and that you are too scared to mix something else that is more creative and more fashionable together. Matchy Matchy = Old Fashioned.
So I went to Kohl’s over break with a friend and everything was super duper on sale. I went to the panty hose/leggings/tights section and they had some cool stuff. I decided I wanted some stockings that were skin color with black stripes and polka dots. They reminded me of the 1920’s flapper style. However when I finally got a change to wear them, they were not at all like I expected. Turns out, the picture on the front of the box was misleading. It makes it look like the whole leg is covered with design, when in actuality, the pattern is only on the bottom part of the hose. This means that none of my dresses or skirts are long enough to cover up the thigh part which has no pattern and is no supposed to be seen. So that’s annoying, I have to try and take them back soon!
