|09:23 am - Day #4, 30 Days of Appreciation: All Sorts of Style Delights and Awakenings|
So, it's Saturday, and this afternoon I plan a long session in front of the fan with iced Moroccan Mint green tea and September issues of fashion mags. (This will be after workout and house cleaning, so so glamourous.)
But here are awesome style links I appreciate now:
*It's London Fashion Week! I am generally slightly put off by NY Fashion Week for reasons I can't explain, but I do love the cheery, cheeky, funky vibe of London Fashion Week. Here's a street style shot via the Styleographer of blogger Kayla Seah at Somerset House. Love the hat, the 'tude, the easiness of the look.
*Elsewhere in England, the Grey Fox does a pictorial on the Goodwood Revival. Love the vintage style (including the cars!).
*Less superficial, perhaps: ballerina Misty Copeland on "broadening" the definition of beauty.
*Lastly, for style that has little to do with appearance, here's a profile of Emma Thompson in the Guardian.
Cheers to all, and may you find moments of awesome in your day.

I've seen some Fashion week shoots going on while wandering about.
I will look for you in Street Style shots!! :)
Cheers and a lovely London day, L.
Don't know which I love more--all those Goodwood mechanics with the bike in the last pic, or formidable Emma. Both!
Hurrah for both, and for you!
Happy Saturday. :)
Misty Copeland was one of the judges on So You Think You Can Dance this past season and her comments/critiques were really wonderful. She's fierce.
Oh cool! I've seen clips of her dancing, but I didn't know she judged SYTYCD.
Hugs and a twirl to you!

The Goodwood Revival looks like so much fun!
Doesn't it look awesome? :)
Cheers for your Saturday, T!

Enjoy the weekend and the fashion mags!
Alas, the September issue of Vogue was dispiriting. Oh well.
Better Saturday for you, Gwynne! Hugs!
That's a great pic. I've been looking into the new hats available for fall, and restraining myself from buying them all at once. :)
I think NY fashion week often tends to be about who can look the most outlandish. The woman in that picture actually looks put together and elegant, whereas so much of NY fashion seems to be about clothes that nobody would wear to actually live their life. Also, so much of what is considered fashionable nowadays flatters no one who isn't a model.
Or, you know, I'm just getting old. And wishing fall would arrive so I can wear my new trenchcoat. :) ((hugs))
New hats for a new season! Go you! (You should certainly buy one for your birthday, something to match your new coat!)
I've been reading a lot about the struggle between fantasy and wearability in fashion in the past hundred years. I don't think it'll be decided easily.
I am definitely considering hat options. There is this one hat store in downtown Seattle I need to get to: it's expensive but I have bought two kick-ass hats there. And I bought a lovely scarf yesterday -- lightweight wool, in the perfect shade of purple with some paisley. Now we just need the temperature to go down. It was like 84 degrees F yesterday. Yuck.
