I realized a few months ago that almost everything I’ve ever purchased from Lilly P is blue. (And then turned around and scored another solid blue dress during their latest sale.) I now own THREE blue Lilly P dresses, albeit made of some very different materials, in very different styles.
I’ve said for years that brown is my black, but that’s not entirely true either. I do wear a lot of brown, particularly in footwear, but I also wear black — just not alone, near my face. However, my wardrobe is ridiculously blue.
I’m not just talking denim. I own a lot of that too. And grey. I’ve knowingly and with intent added a lot of grey to my wardrobe this year. I wanted to add a lot of camel, but I didn’t seem to get more than a pair of cord pants and a cardigan.
I love color, but I don’t seem to pull the trigger and purchase much of it. This cardigan is on sale at Talbots and I love it, but… I haven’t purchased it yet.
Do I need to worry that “everything” I buy from Lilly P is solid blue? Are color ruts really ruts or is it just a matter of me knowing what I like and honoring what looks good?
I’m hardly some slick cosmopolitan chick who always wears black – or even blue – and white. In fact, I only own one little black dress that is actually too big, a black pencil skirt, a floor-length black skirt and black wool pants. I own ONE white blouse and a few white summer shirts. (But that sweater would look great with black and white, no?)
This Chanformation stuff is deep. Thanks for “listening” as I muddle through recapturing myself. And honestly, does ANYONE else out there do analysis paralysis to the degree I do?
