The Bold Puffer

December 11, 2017


ASOS puffer
& Other Stories dress
AG jeans
By Far boots

My layering tricks come in handy this time of year. A dress over jeans may seem weird to many of my girlfriends who prefer to stick with fully feminine looks. But to me, it’s exactly how I want to wear a dress. I’ve always been a tall girl, and growing up with many dresses fitting like tunics on me, the habit of wearing them over jeans or pants was something that came early to me. And the combination stuck. It’s almost second nature now. And in the winter, many of my dresses just don’t make the cut with just a pair of tights to fight back winter’s bite. The automatic fix is always a good old pair of jeans. Even a pair of flares come out of the woodwork this time of the year for exactly this reason. They bring me back to the 90’s and early 2000’s. Oh what a time, I’m not embarrassed to say. A bright puffer on top, and there you go . . . a spring dress can most definitely survive winter in New York City.

Please, don’t wake me up! I’m in dreamland. I mean, I must be dreaming, right? When was the last time anyone saw me in a dress this airy, feminine and romantic? Ages? Well, actually, this IS real life. Surprised? Let’s say that surprising ourselves is just a part of life. And fashion speaks so much to this. The feeling of stepping outside one’s usual comfort zone, and trying something different, taking on a characteristic that is not usual for oneself, even just for a few hours, or a whole day, or a whole month . . . well, that’s the freedom of speech that fashion allows us to have. There is no one to tell us who we are meant to be, and especially how we are meant to dress. I like telling a story, having a theme, with the way I dress, even if it doesn’t feel exactly who I am deep down inside. But it’s a story and a theme that I came up with in my head, so in that way it is a part of me. And I get to express that whenever I like. However I like.

On this morning in particular, this dress came my way. It felt silky and so delicate, I was almost afraid to put it on in fear of staining it or ripping it. It was like a piece that I would have worn to ballet class as a child, only far more grown up. But still it felt child-like, with its over abundant sleeves and high neckline. It was a dress looking to be danced in. Looking for sunlight to hit it. Looking for sunglasses to match its whimsy and girlishness. It was looking to be a part of a story to be told. It was looking to be interpreted however the interpreter wanted. This dress is not usually how I wear the color pink, but it might be a way that becomes more routine. Who knows how things catch on. How we suddenly fall for something else after being so used to another thing for so long. Our decisions, the things that attract us, the things that make us feel “together”, they can change at anytime. And that unexpectedness, that random chance, is the charm. So just go with it.

On the Go in Banana Republic Holiday

December 6, 2017

I still cannot believe that Thanksgiving has already passed, and the end of the 2017 is right around the corner. This feeling of “woah” is one we all keep getting used to having and reliving over and over again around this time. It’s almost unbelievable feeling, know just how much time has already passed and all the things we were able to fit in just 12 months time. It sounds like ages, but also like the most compact amount of time there is.

One of the most important aspects of the holiday season is time. There never seems to be enough of it. We work hard to cram in as much family time, friend time, work time, task time, me time, as we can at the end of the year. It can be a bit overwhelming. Well, actually way more than just a bit. My deadlines are crazy around this time, I’ve almost forgot about the parties I have on my calendar this month. That’s when the ease of multi-tasking dressing comes into play. An outfit that works all day, and parties through the night. Banana Republic‘s clothing is made for the working woman who also likes to have a life beyond the office. And especially the holiday collection. I don’t necessarily work out of an office, but I understand that need for balance very much so. Different aspects of my life overlap in so many ways, and there are only so many hours in the day. Wearing something that you can work from the morning to night is important. Juggling gifts in between that all, well that’s another thing, but hey . . . not having to change outfits somewhere along the line saves just the right amount of that much needed extra time. Time is everything right now. Let’s hang on to as much of it as we can. Banana Republic gets that. 2018 is getting closer, but let’s make as much as we can of what we have left of 2017. Now go, go go!
