So summer seems to have arrived and once again, I look in my closet, completely flummoxed (yes, flummoxed). Although my closet is embarrassingly stuffed with enough clothing to dress a small country of chic women (who wear anything from a size 4 to a size 10), I can’t seem to remember how to dress for the summer. Winter is easy–I could throw a nice (black) cardigan or a great (black) jacket over anything, and it almost didn’t matter what I wore underneath. It was all about covering up with thick, beautiful clothing that rendered my actual body dimensions irrelevant. But the summer is all about showing skin….the fabrics are sheer and the colors are “look at me bright”! Yikes! I took a few hours last week to pull out all of my summer clothes and actually tried them on to see: 1) if they fit, 2) if they were still in style (so long, harem pants), and 3) if I still like them. As I tried them all on, it started coming back to me…..oh yeah, I used to wear that camisole over this tank with shorts and my have white belt. Once I sorted through everything, I made 3 piles for the clothes that didn’t cut it; one for my friends who I think might like something, one for consignment, and one for the big metal donation box. It was only at that point that I could really appreciate what I needed……luckily, I co-own a store (!!!!!!), so Tracy and I get first dibs on all of the stuff we’ve ordered. So far, I’ve taken a gorgeous tank dress from KOCH (pic in gallery), several cute camisoles from Pas de Calais (my new favorite line), a gorgeous hand painted beach poncho from Glamourpuss, a great pair of cropped linen cargo pants (Pete & Greta), and finally, this insane indigo blue leather jacket lined in muslim from Jakett. Oh, and also, a white eyelet blouse from Cino that I can wear with my Black Orchid skinny micro flare jeans……We also have got in a ton of really cool summery jewelry. Enjoy the weather, and remember, we’re available for summer clothing suggestions and direction!
