Out of comfort zone

      If I found this blouse in a store I would have never even looked at it - for me it's too girly with too many details at the same time - lace, embroidery, lush sleeves, too much fabric around my waist. It is definitely not my usual choice. But the thing is - when it comes from Olga, I always try things on, because sometimes I just want to see what she chooses for herself and the main question - why? What did she like about this item?

      And, of course, most of her clothes don't work for me, -  we have totally different preferences and styles, in addition to the age difference. But sometimes, as you've seen before, some pieces I end up keeping in my closet after she doesn't want them anymore. They really works well for me.

     Today I decided to wear this blouse, even if it is not my theme. I decided to try something totally new for myself, I wanted to see how I feel in the item which doesn't belong to me. Surprisingly, it wasn't too bad. I spent the whole day in this outfit and wasn't feeling uncomfortable. Again, it is not what I usually buy, but it's like being out of my comfort zone, a little challenge in a good way. I decided to keep it for a while... Who said that it's not for me?

  2. Tatiana, I like the top and am glad you expanded beyond your usual style. I find, though, that I am most comfortable in things I am most comfortable in--so I tend to wear the same things again and again. I recently bought four (4) dresses from my niece who sells them. Here is the style, but mine are all prints. (http://www.lularoe.com/carly-dress) They are so comfortable and remind me of tent dresses from the 60s or 70s. Now I keep wearing them again and again. So, if you find yourself reaching for that blouse soon, I would say "keep it," but if you don't wear it again for a while, maybe it is not you.
