Happy Thursday, friends!   Today, I am going to further explain How Style Adjectives Work for Me….and style adjectives work for you too!

Since the wedding search began, new readers have joined in and asked questions.

The most asked has been…what do you mean about how “style adjectives” work for your wedding shopping??

I am going to discuss this again, but first let me share information on another question asked.

Let’s get going and talk style on this lovely weekday….

So many of you liked and agreed that this is the Mother-of-the-Groom dress for me.

Several also wanted to look at the dress for their own needs and wear sad that Nordstrom had sold out of so many sizes.

GOOD NEWS….Dillard’s also has this KAY UNGER Floral Print Jacquard Asymmetrical Neck Short Sleeve Pleated A-Line Ballgown! 

But don’t think too long…they are already out of some sizes…they do have the size 16 I am wearing.  It is very easy to make returns at Dillard’s.

I agree that this neckline is unique and not seen on many gown designs right now….and it does meet my style adjectives.

OK…back to the story of how style adjectives work.

Many of you know that I have been writing about style adjectives for years and using this as a guideline to create a personal style that is uniquely me.

As a professional communicator, I learned the importance of what our clothing tells the world about us.

It just made sense to me that if I controlled a set of style adjectives (5 for me, some like 3) and made sure I was communicating them with each outfit, that I would develop Pamela-style!

I desperately need to make some new videos, but I believe one of my best explanations is in this video I made two years ago:

Since the pandemic, I have looked at every outfit and asked if I am telling the world that I am polished, creative, approachable, joyful and current.

I do not purchase pieces that will not help me to speak all five adjectives.

I recently wrote about how the word polished keeps the work creative in check…and keeps me from going too bohemian with my style.

There are readers here who have learned from this, practice it, and also agree that style adjectives work.

When we went to Cabo on a vacation recently, one evening a young girl (maybe 10 or 11) walked up to me and just began to chat…it was as if I had known her always.

Mr. B said…it is because you communicate that you are approachable…ok, that style adjective works.

Every day, I look in the mirror and ask…does this outfit say these five things…if it does not…then I go back and begin to tweak.

Of course, when I am wearing my style adjectives which bring confidence then I go out with a big smile…and that is approachable and joyful.

I am showing you a couple of outfits from the past week that I have worn to go out and about.

This way you can see how I am styling the adjectives.

To say I am creative can be in these colorful toppers, or simply with fun accessories.

Recently I found this fun, creative crossbody bag by Patricia Nash at Dillard’s.

I was looking for a gold crossbody and this is fun.  

A perfect wardrobe for me would include a whole shelf of Patricia Nash bags….I love them.

They speak my creative style adjective for every day or dress, and again says that my style adjectives work.

You can see that I wore the top outfit here out to lunch with dear friends.

Underneath a Chico’s Kimono, I am wearing the Eileen Fisher stretchable silk tank I also recently purchased in the Dillard’s sale….and I love it.

Tossed on my new Chico’s multi-colored beads necklace and Chico’s pull on jeggings and I was ready for fun with the girls.

The key to developing a personal style with style adjectives is to be consistent.

Style adjectives work when you look every day into to mirror to see if you are speaking the same adjectives every time you dress.

Over time your style adjectives will build a consistent wardrobe, prevent shopping mistakes, and tell the world who you are.

I find it much more effective than simply saying…I am classic, or boho, or preppy, etc.  We are all much more than one word.

Please ask any questions you like about how style adjectives work for me…I love helping other women see how style adjectives can work for them as well.
