I am a week late with my May vlog, my friends. I filmed last week and the videos turned out so bad, even Hubby recognized that they were NOT worthy of using to create a vlog. Oh my. Too many chins by half. And that’s all I’m going to say about that. Ha.
But this week I had much better luck. My camera was back in action, and chins were not quite so much in evidence. Phew.
In this vlog I am styling a “maybe” jacket. Or I should say, trying to style. My old white Lida Baday blazer has been hanging in my storage closet for years. And since I have been using Allsion Bornstein’s method to edit my closet, this old jacket has been in my “maybe” category. Mostly because I can’t decide how to wear it. When I did my spring closet switchover, I was determined that I wanted try to style this jacket.
My styling efforts were not as successful as I’d hoped. But the exercise was not entirely wasted. I did learn a few things. Including why I don’t like ladylike style anymore. Big epiphany there, for me.
But you have to watch the video to find out what that is.
At a little over sixteen minutes, this video has more outfits and less waffling on than some of my other vlogs.
I hope you enjoyed that.
But, while styling my “maybe” jacket was fun, it wasn’t profitable in the way I’d hoped. Of course, I did reinforce why I like a few older outfits, and found at least one new one. But, sadly, my Lida Baday jacket is still languishing in my “maybe” pile. I may have to give it up.
But not quite yet. I’ve another couple of ideas up my sleeve. I’ll let you know how I get on with them.
P.S. Here’s the link to the original video describing Allison Bornstein’s Closet Editing System.
So, my fashion friends, have you found new ways to wear old, well-loved, but problematic pieces lately? Do tell.
