‘How do I look?’ is always a loaded question. In most cases, the query is posed to seek validation.
I most recently asked my teenage daughters about an outfit. The sweatpants brigade, as I’ve come to call them, was not satisfied by dressed-up look. As I started to reconsider the components of my outfit, I raised my eyebrows –as best as I could– turned on my toes, and responded, “I like it, I really don’t care what you think.”
At this moment, I started to wonder if great fashion was a precise compilation of the perfect items or the confidence in that they are presented. Drag queens are famous for their dramatic and often over-the-top outfits but the presentation often projects as fabulous and fierce. Maybe we need to spend more time perfecting our presentation and less time fretting over the individual outfit components.
Speaking of finding great components, DSW is hosting extra markdowns on its Gucci selection. We found Gucci slides for $450 from $790, sneakers are $299 from $790 and slippers are $262 from $750. You can use this size conversion chart if you want to search the men’s shoe department.
Net-A-Porter is the latest retailer to begin big markdowns on skiwear and winter accessories. I love buying new items at this time of year and keeping them pristine until the Fall. It’s like having a free gift when you finally get to wear it. A Goldbergh black jacket is $525 from $750 and this Perfect Moment puffer is $385 from $550.
