Fans of the movie The Devil Wears Prada probably have a certain scene etched in their minds, as I do. In that scene, (YouTube link to the scene) Miranda Priestly (the boss) berates Andie (the heroine) for referring to the color cerulean as just “blue”. Well, you have to watch it to get the spirit, humor and gist of that moment.
In this post I felt compelled to emulate the badass Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, in her wardrobe choice. She stands out, fashion wise, because she has embraced the monochromatic color scheme; wearing bright pantsuits with matching pant, jacket and shoes and sometimes a matching beaded necklace. These days she adds a matching mask. And she totally pulls it off. Would I write about wardrobe choices about a male speaker of the house? Of course not; because his wardrobe would be a boring navy or black — day in and day out. Because I choose to admire Speaker Pelosi’s attire, it doesn’t demean her work one iota.
Lest you think I’m politically a partisan, I am. But in admiring fashion and clothes I am so utterly bipartisan! Did you see a 4 year old post where I copied First Lady Melania Trump’s (then-candidate’s wife) awesome sleeve detail? See it here.
So, here I am in a monochromatic cerulean outfit. The pieces are not new, but this is the first time I found courage to put the pants and top together. Pants: Vogue1411; top: McCalls7470 (modified).
For your enjoyment, I’ve included another tear out of InStyle magazine through which I keep getting inspired.
This post is a shorty, my friends! Please take care of yourself and your loved ones. A couple of big storms/hurricanes are likely to hit the Gulf Coast and my anxiety level is a bit elevated in anticipation.
