I was watching the Today Show on NBC yesterday,where there was this discussion on Vanity Fair’s list of Best dressed Men and Women.So they go on about who’s made the list.Now the Duchess of Cambridge:Kate Middleton held one of the top position and then it becomes a hot debate as to how she has become a trend setter in recycling her clothes or rather making public appearance in a particular outfit more than once.It is worth acknowledging that a royal is repeating her clothes and carrying her own shopping bags!
How often would you repeat that favorite blue striped shirt or that pink cardigan to work or a social gathering?Hmmm…Is it wrong or socially unacceptable to repeat?What are your definitions of a repeat disaster?
I mean its ok…I guess when you repeat your work clothes,unless of course your Anna Wintour’s assistant then you’d have to discard the poor piece after its first appearance.Anyway I think when you are working,its ok to wear a particular piece of clothing once in two or three weeks.You could even make it less of a repeat and more of a complimentary favorite by pairing it with something else.Like that cute black cardigan,with your chic trousers and then maybe later with a nice printed dress on those slightly chilly days.Now there are some guys I know who have their all time ‘Can’t live without denims’.I mean to them,they are walking out naked if they don’t have them on.God knows how often that goes into the washing machine!Reminds you of that time when your mom got you the nice t-shirt or shoes when you were a kid and where ever you went,you had to wear it.There are some individuals who swear every time,that its the first time they are wearing the item,though you swear in your mind you saw them wear it at the last marketing meeting!I know of some people who even allot pieces to a particular season,no I’m not talking about the winter lot.But there are a couple of pieces like a blouse that comes out only in a particular season,make them look the temperature,if you get what I mean.In fact I was watching Katie Cruise (Tom Cruise’s wife incase it didn’t ring a bell the first time),so she was on the Jay Leno show and she says “I can’t wear yellow,that’s a spring color,for that matter even a pastel pink”.(Doesn’t suit her skin color)”I’m a winter person,I wear Reds.”Wow so we have a new category.
Now yes I agree the cute dress you wore at your cousin’s bachelorette party,well you can’t wear it to the wedding as well.I mean that would be plain lazy!There is something called…less is More!I’m going in for a theory here;you don’t show off that “Oh this looks so good on you’ piece,keep it to rare appearance and then bring it out like the Christmas crackers…you will still have people raving about it.Make sure you spend a little time to think how many new faces are going to be there.Now don’t go about wearing that pink blouse at every nice occasion,people will soon think you are poor or just too darn lazy to try on something new.
Lets just say the ‘Once in a blue moon’ appearance aint wrong!And I am glad that the Duchess is making sure the world knows that too,thereby signifying our economic times!
(Need to mention H.H. Sheika Moza Bint Nasser of Qatar, wife of H.H. the Emir of Qatar and UNESCO special envoy for basic and higher education made the list too!!)
