Friends, I have been in denial. For many a year I feigned indifference toward fashion trends, secretly reading my roommate's mags & watching Project Runway, gleaning hand-me-downs from friends who had "the eye." My annoyance with store shopping & the "help" of sales associates deceived me, but no more. Not only do I love catalogs & online browsing, Etsy & the like, I also covet the drama & risk of pieces that border on being a costume. Saturated tones, tailored pleats & collars, chunky rings, patterned tights & leggings, an array of handbags & purses. I want to adopt Nana's vocabulary of always calling them trousers, gowns, blouses & frocks.
