I used to be much more into fashion. Designer labels used to have meaning & value to me. I used to own a ridiculous amount of clothes. I had charge cards to every major department store that was around at the time (I miss you Bullocks), and those babies saw a lot of swiping action. I could go an entire month without wearing the same pants, shirts, or underwear...but those days, along with a mountain of credit card debt (and my 28" waist) are long gone.
This expensive/irrational love affair with designer clothing died a slow death. It was a necessary death. I had to stop buying clothes that I couldn't afford & honestly didn't need. I had to stop equating shopping with happiness & finally live within my means.
Today, my wardrobe is much more streamlined. I don't own a single department store charge card, and I'm just as happy in a t-shirt from Old Navy, as I am in a dress shirt from Armani. I do treat myself occasionally and buy something "nice" to wear, but I'm in control now...also, I do own a lot of jeans still, but they're very necessary, each & every pair.
Anyhoo...As suspected, Milan saw suits, suits, and even more suits, but there were exceptions...here are a few of my favorite looks that got sashayed down the runways in Milan last week.
DSquared ~ I'm digging this nod to punk, and I used to own a pair of shoes exactly like the ones in the pic. If I were down to my goal weight, I think I could pull this look off...only, I'd have the pants tailored a little longer.
Moschino ~ I do loves me some "Mo". Yes, these 2 looks are similar, sorta, but I can't decide which I like more...the one on the left reads a little "doorman-ish", but I think I can make it work. Ah hell, I love both of these jackets I'll take them both.
Gotta run...the Paris shows start today...Happy Shopping!
ps: The answers are 32" Waist (someday this year) & Medium.
