I have a uniform, and you probably do as well. Mine consists of simple, neutral clothes and bright accessories. I try to be different, but every time, and I mean every single time, I buy something outrageous I end up never wearing it. What’s the point of that? But my heart, it so desperately wants to be glamorous. Behold, my style board: Pretty fancy, huh? I’ve had to learn to accept my simple tastes and lofty aspirations. Because while a ballerina-like cocktail gown is lovely and makes my heart go aflutter, the truth is I don’t have anywhere to wear it.
If you don’t know what an inspiration board is (what? you don’t watch Oprah?) they’re easy and fun to make — get some paper or poster board, scissors, a glue stick and tons of magazines. Get as wide a variety of magazines as you can, but be sure to have a few of your favorites on hand, even if they’re not fashion magazines — TV Guide or National Geographic work too — and go to town tearing out pictures and words that you like. There are no rules, so have fun. Then you glue your favorite pictures onto whatever surface you have on hand (I use a notebook) and…that’s all there is to it! Easy!
Over the next month, we will see how you can make jeans go beyond the basic to reflect the real you. But first, get out your scissors and have some fun!
