After my husband snapped the first photo for this shoot he said "You look like the evil queen.". I assumed he meant because of my new cardigan (which is also referred to as a"duster" at this length). I took it as a compliment because it must've meant he thought my newest piece was dramatic, and you know how I love statement pieces. However, he also told me "Babe, you're not a hippie." when he first saw me in my multi-colored sequin hat. I didn't really have anything to say to that one (lol).

I love the way this cardigan flows behind me as I'm walking. I imagine the Phantom or any of the Jedi from Star Wars feel the same way with their capes and robes. In case you haven't figured it out by now, I'm drawn to different and dramatic clothing and accessories and I enjoy wearing them. My style is always changing and sometimes I wonder if people think I'm just trying to figure out who I am. But the truth is, trying new things and wearing different styles IS who I am. Friends, your clothing is an expression of yourself and you should wear what you like and not worry about what anyone else thinks. I know sometimes it might be hard, but trust me when I say that you'll be much happier with yourself when you dress honestly. :)
