A Few of My Favorite Things

You know this whole nonsense about never recycling outfits or wearing the same thing twice? Like I said, nonsense.

I read somewhere that French women pioneered the idea of outfit repetition. When they find something that works for them, they stick to it, like a formula. Google Emanuelle Alt; in nearly every picture she’s got killer stilettos, skinny jeans, a button down shirt, and fabulous coat or blazer. She’s the editor of Vogue Paris. If she can do it, so can you. I’m all for trying new trends and having fun with your look, but on your terms, non? vsco-photo-1

In a similar vein, I think one of my favorite parts of being in my twenties has been starting to discover those things I love enough to wear/ use over and over again, like signature items. Garance Doré (I’m sparing you pictures of the shrine), red nail polish, gold jewelry, Penhaligon’s perfume and the bajillion books on my Kindle.

I could leave any combination of those things on a chair in the DMV and my friends would know I’d been there; do you guys have signature items like that?


Hi There!

Howdy readers! I’m sure there aren’t many of you, if any at all, at this point but I figured I should say hello regardless. In short, I’m Olivia, lovely to meet you, welcome to The Style Room, yada yada yada. This is where I’ll be sharing my tips, tricks, trials and tribulations on plus size professional style. I’m just entering the phase of my life where business wear will be the norm, and although something I’ve long admired from afar, it’s not my forté. (More of a skinny jeans and chelsea boots girl, really)

So, as I learn how to translate the looks I love into something that works for me, so will you. And, though fashion is the focus I won’t limit myself; I love to talk beauty, lifestyle, food, and culture. Stay tuned for this Wednesday’s post on a wardrobe staple.

Thanks for stopping by!

This is a little taste of what I’m into over here at Style Room. I threw this set together to test out the theme and dive right in!
P.S. It’s hard to tell, but those trousers are navy blue and pinstripe
