“Don’t Be Into Trends”

“Don’t be into trends. Don’t make fashion own you, but you decide what you are, what you want to express by the way you dress and the way you live.”

– Gianni Versace

I am, by no means, a fashionable person.  I share a closet with two other people:  my husband, Rudy, and my Marine, Rudy.  In the last three years, I have evicted articles of clothing that were just “squatting” in my closet and have brought my wardrobe to roughly 30 outfits for the entire year (with a quarter of that being winter clothing).

If I had more money, I have NO DOUBT I would have more clothing.  Absolutely.  For sure.  But, one clothing item/accessory that I can live without?

HIGH HEELS

aka

STILETTOS

They are nasty bits of fashion that leave me leaning forward and feeling concerned about the health of my achilles.

Don’t get me wrong.  They are sexy as $#!t!  Thanks to a friend here in Iwakuni who let me borrow a pair for this shoot, I finally found out why they are so appealing.  I looked smoking when I was trying on outfits with those shoes in my room!

Anyway, having trendy and fashionable clothing items is no longer a priority to me (for a number of reasons). Yes, when I have items that make me feel good-looking, light is added to my life.  But I don’t have to have the closet of my dreams to be happy.  I just need my slip-on memory-foam Skechers.
