THE INDEX

More is More

ChristmasEve_1

More is more. Ironically, while I write this right now I am wearing a sweatshirt that says ‘Less is more’, and I honestly believe both statements are true. It just depends on the outfit, the day, and how you are feeling. I think I’ve said this before, or at least in a round about way, but I really believe there are no rules when it comes to fashion. The outfit that looks best on you is the one you feel best wearing. Confidence is something you can’t buy.

This outfit was my Christmas Eve outfit. This skirt is such a beautiful piece and makes a huge statement – I have been called an ornament while wearing it, which I took as a huge compliment. Throwing a string of garland from the Christmas tree on as a necklace wasn’t totally necessary with a skirt this loud, but why the heck not?!

On many occasions I do believe less is more, but on Christmas Eve when I wrapped the garland around my neck I was definitely feeling Iris Apfel’s advice: ‘More is more and less is a bore’.
