Wrinkleberry


This skirt should be classified as a "standing only" garment.  Doesn't matter that I take time to starch and press the darn thing, as soon as I so much as bend over, it's all for nought.  But I love the color and shape and the exposed bronze zipper down the tush, so I wear it anyway and try to ignore the inevitable wrinklage.
I'm naturally a matchy-matchy kind of dresser.  My brain just doesn't comprehend purposeful clashing.  I've tried, really I have.  I just don't have it in me.  But I don't want to be too matchy.  Monochromatic color palettes are like therapy for my stylistic eye.  Especially lately, with all the pretty pastels on trend, I like to pair them with their bolder, saturated color family member.

Man...don't you hate that?? I drive a lot for work, so many of my things get creased the heck up right there.

PS...it's color "palette."

A palette is what a painter uses to hold paint, a pallet is a flat shipping tool to stack things on for easy forklifting, and a palate is part of the structure of the head (and figuratively what we taste with, kind of like how we feel things with the heart but we don't REALLY).

That is a great palette! I feel your pain over the wrinkles, too.

I have several skirts that do that, and a pair of trousers. So annoying.

BTW, I posted a close-up of my lace jacket on today's post for you.
