Personal Style is Art too......

My personal Style....
People ask me, “When did I start dressing this way?” I have to say I really do not remember…I think it was about five or so years ago… maybe longer. I have always admired ethnic clothing, jewelry and textiles so; I think my style has simply evolved into me wearing what I absolutely love!
In my closet you will find things like long full skirts with beautiful Indian embroidery, huipils from Mexico and Guatemala, woven belts of all types, handbags, Mexican dresses, Indian tops, and even a few lovely pieces from Morocco. My jewelry also has the ethnic flare…many pieces from India, Mexico, or hand made pieces made by me or from one of my many talented artist friends.
I have to tell you that there are times when I think I would like to change up my style and be more on the so called normal side…but, it never does seem to happen. Not only do I feel more comfortable in the clothing that I choose to wear but, I also feel elegant and beautiful in my own way.
I hear a range of comments but, my most favorite is what I consider a compliment…. “You look like a piece of Art!”
