I like my wardrobe simple with random flair. Timeless and true to whatever I’m feeling, seeing or experiencing at the moment.
I’m the photographer in this shot and my model is wearing pieces from my personal wardrobe paired with things to be featured in my ebay store
Let’s start with footwear: A black pump goes with EVERYTHING and a closed toe makes your feet look fabulous despite slacking on a pedicure, right? Something about the suede material on this particular pump… le sigh
Better than the heirloom necklace I got for my birthday is my grandma’s black leather skirt. Yeah, I said grandma. My sweet 87 year old grandmother once wore tight leather everything. She says this was back when she was dating younger men in the 60’s after one of her divorces. My grandma is so chic it hurts! I took this skirt off her hands because it was about time she passed down some of her magic.
Every outfit has a complimented piece. It’s that thing you wear that the chick in the checkout line will tell you is cute. I insist on wearing at least ONE complimented piece per day whether it is a neat ring or fun shoes. I’m too shy for small talk but if you get me to start talking about my clothes I may never shut up.
For this outfit it is the military inspired jacket. It is my style love song to Jimi Hendrix. He was the first man that I ever loved, in theory. I imagine my now straight laced grandparents spent much of the 60’s dropping LSD and listening to Janis Joplin and Hendrix. This is the music I remember from my early youth thanks to their vinyl collections.
I see hints of the Hendrix style throughout my closet. Rich fabrics and bold patterns. With my thrifted bifocal ray-ban style sunglasses I am a flower child reincarnated. You see, I swear that much of the way we dress is attributed to what we are listening to. Fashion is in our surroundings, it is everything we are at any given moment. And if you are being true to your inner essence, the outcome shall remain forever timeless… or so I’m told.
“Move on Mr. Business Man, you can’t dress like me,” – Jimi Hendrix.
