On Fashion

Clothes: Today I wore a neck scarf for the first time in ages. I don't usually wear scarves around my neck because I suck at wearing scarves. Some women can put on a scarf and drape it artfully just so, so that it adorns their neck like a piece of fabric sculpture. Not mine. Mine always look like I just threw them on, no matter how carefully I drape them. Or the knot slips from the side of my neck to the front, which makes me feel a bit like Fred from Scooby Doo.

Anyway, it's a lovely, purple, flowery scarf that I bought to go with my purple pantsuit. The white tank top I wear with the pantsuit needed some dressing up, and I decided I'd rather wear a scarf than a necklace. It must have looked pretty good despite the scarf, because I got complimented on it, which was nice. Maybe the scarf didn't look as bad as I thought.

I bought it at Chico's--which is a fabulous store, where the clothing is all color-coordinated to mesh with a person's complexion. Most of my clothes are therefore in blues purples, teals, turquoises, whites, and blacks, since I have a winter complexion. The jewelry and scarves are also color-coordinated to match the clothing, so everything works together very well. If you haven't guessed, I love that store. I shop at the outlet version of it, which is great, because it has sales often. Between clothing from Chico's and Hawaiian shirts from Walmart, I hae a quite colorful collection. *happy sigh*

Books: This week's book is The Way of the Ascetics by Tito Colliander. I love it already. It's sort of like the Cliff Notes version of The Cloud of Unknowing, which is my favorite book of all time. I can imagine wanting to buy a bigger purse so I can fit The Way into it.

I also want to read the works of St. Therese of Lisieux. I found out today that she was only 24 when she died, but she was already a sage who loved simplicity above all things. My kind of woman.

It is weird to think that St. Therese of Liseux and Dog the Bounty Hunter are two people who I greatly admire despite being completely different sorts of people.
