*Forget About It

My StyleValerie Comment

I put an outfit together with a couple of the gems I picked up at the Florida thrift stores.  I don't have a lot of money to spend on clothes.  In fact, I don't want to spend a lot of money on clothes.  I think thrifting is cool because it makes me be more unique and creative with my style.  I enjoy mixing textures and adding something unexpected. Are there rules in fashion?  Well, if so then I'm a rebel cause Imma wear what I want (kinda like I'm too old to say "Imma").  Here's the thing...it's a matter of personal preference.  I don't really like wearing nail polish at my age, but I have friends that wear nail polish all the time and it looks lovely.  *Forget about it.  I wear sneakers with dresses and skirts and I have friends that would never do that.  *Forget about it.  I have a really good friend of mine who has fabulous style.  She wears polyester a lot.  In fact, it may very well be her signature fabric.  *Forget about it.  She looks stunning in poly! (Imma do a "Friends With Style" post on her soon so you can see how amazing she is!)

Wear what you like without fear.  And if someone comes up to you and asks a question like, "Aren't you too old to wear sneakers with a dress?"  Smile at them and *forget about it!

*"Forget about it" reference from Napoleon Dynamite.  "Take a look at what I'm wearing, people.  You think anybody wants a roundhouse kick to the face while I'm wearing these bad boys?  Forget about it."
