Of course, I really don't...but I usually pair these emptying out sessions with internet perusals of the latest fashion trends. It is in that moment of anguish, when I realize that no one in Milan consulted me,
(alas, there is no designer that is showing sweats and bunny slippers as couture) that I make the cry for clothes. It is usually right after that moment of anguish that my husband finds an excuse that removes him from the proximity of the clothing bomb that has gone off in the bedroom.
In years past, I have run out and picked up a few things to bring my wardrobe back into 'Zen'...but this year is different. This year the proverbial belt is tight. So how to capture the Spring 2011 trends without killing the budget? Vintage accessories.
The look from many high end designers for Spring and Summer 2011 was 1970s influenced. There was a return to tailored, but feminine pieces with a little late 60s early 70s flair. There was a move toward soft sheer layers, preppy grandma-inspired bags, and colors that ranged from rust to ocean-y aquas.
So in honor of this 1970s chic-ness, and for the sake of budgets everywhere that cannot drop extra cash on a whole new wardrobe, this week I am giving away a few choice accessories that would look fabulous with say, something a little like the pic at the left.
The giveaway winners will be announced Monday morning February 28th, 2011. Winners will be chosen at random, based on a number assigned to your comment to this weeks blog posts.
