Inspiration with a new cherished favourite

I was reading an article recently about a journalist who was given a Chanel classic jacket to wear for a month.  The deal was she had to wear it daily and reinvent it regularly to get the most out of it.  And all I have to say is what an inspiration!

Firstly, the idea that you can get so much use out of an investment item has totally convinced me to make the leap and buy one (second hand I’m sure, as buying one full price would require selling a kidney I think!)  But now, I’m totally inspired to not only get more creative on a daily basis but to challenge myself when I do finally acquire a Chanel tweed jacket to try and see how I can make it work for me to bring it current and trendy.

What a great idea though, to be required to wear an item so that it forces you to think outside the box and your style comfort zone.  The older we get, the more repetitive we become in our day-to-day wardrobe.  And I’m guilty of that as well – believe me.

Once you find a style, a designer, a store which is a fit for your figure, your style personality, even your budget, there you stay because it takes the guesswork out of shopping.  And, there is nothing wrong with that and its a good method to build the core of ones wardrobe.  But, we need to shake things up, wardrobe-wise, and believe me, you’ll be glad you did.  What a boost it can be to work something new into your wardrobe formula, it will soon become your new cherished favourite.

Find a way to get more adventurous (No, I’m not saying trying S&M clothing as your new work wardrobe!) but, try to buy one thing that’s not something you would normally go for and work it a few ways with your normal go-to pieces.

Try trending and funking it up a bit and you’ll be amazed at the clever results and other compliments that will soon roll in as a result.

Now go forth and shop!! (Be sure to post pics here of how you get on!)
