Have you ever met someone that has a signature sense of style? They always seem put together and have a look that’s all their own. I’m not saying it’s totally important, but it is a fun thing to do. Do any of you know Diane Keaton loves turtlenecks? Yes, she wears them quite often and that alone, could be her signature style. In Diane’s movie, “Something’s Gotta Give,” her character, (like her real life self) wears turtlenecks in almost every scene. Remember Barbara Bush’s double pearl necklace she wore on most public appearances? Can you think of any other women you know, both famous and average Janes who’ve managed to capture a unique style that’s all their own?
I mention red shoes at the beginning of this post because for a time I liked wearing red shoes. It was a pleasant surprise while watching Chocolat to see Vianne had the same fashion sensibility as myself-she loved her red high heels. I own a pair of red Mary Janes similiar to the ones the girl above is wearing. I don’t feel sexy in them, but I do feel a bit sassy, and artsy. There’s just something about red shoes that sets you apart from the rest.
I think thrift shops are a great place to start when begining to search out a signature style or if you already have it figured out, it makes a fantastic, inexpensive place to collect the things you love. You can find so many wonderful, vintage items for a song. Discover the thrill of the hunt and make the second hand shops a weekly shopping event. You just may be able to discover something that suits your fancy and spells out your name. Have fun!
