My grandmother used to stand over her bathroom sink and methodically dye her graying hair light brown. I would sometimes sit on the edge of the tub and watch her work, mesmerized by her rhythm. Why waste money when she could do it herself? My grandmother has always lived at the sweet intersection of stylish and practical. She cares about her appearance—and aims to look chic, put together—but never at the expense of pragmatism.
This is the sensibility she desperately tried to instill in me. My grandmother has never once held back when it came to offering an opinion on my look. Since my grandmother can no longer venture far from home, she relayed her style guide to me in person, which I recorded and transcribed for use throughout the following week. Chic, elegant, and simple. Dress to impress.
I decided to put my own spin on the asment, choosing to express myself through texture and color. For a jacket, I gravitated toward a baby blue sale-rack gem from Zarawhich I found with my mom when I was in college. My heeled go-go boots are actually remnants of a Halloween costume! You can literally find these at any Spirit Halloween store. This ensemble made me feel like the Middle Eastern Sharon Tate. I strutted into work on Monday morning with the confidence of a Love Island contestant. So many coworkers even ones I had only crossed paths with in the bathroomstopped to inquire about my boots.
The only negative feedback I received came from the receptionist of an acupuncturist I visited after work, who explained that it was perhaps unwise to wear a turtleneck to an appointment that involved sticking needles in my body. In my defense, it was my first time trying acupuncture. In her defense, she was right. Very good for cold weather. Inspired by menswear. My interpretation: I got a little cheeky with this asment.
Yes, I am wearing three different plaids here. And while I wanted to wear these Dr. So I settled for my trusty matte Dr. Martens combat boots instead. I think they got the job done. The reactions to this outfit were more mixed. But ultimately, I loved it.
Pair with ballet flats because the skirt is long. The perfect outfit for taking a walk. Day three was one of those days when I tried five million different things and every layer made me feel more and more like the abominable snowman and less like myself. I felt like Bridgette Bardot meets Mia Thermopolis, pre-makeover. By the time I left my apartment, it looked ransacked. There were clothes scattered all over the floor and I was late to work. I practically slinked out, willing myself to either melt into the sidewalk or somehow camouflage into a surrealist backdrop that would render me invisible.
Unfortunately, neither scenario came to pass. When I got to work, a team member immediately noticed my foul mood and politely asked if I was okay. She scanned me quickly, clocking the conflicting patterns and silhouettes. Go like a vagabond and be comfortable, with no fuss. Perfect to wear grocery shopping. While I did wear a T-shirt as instructed white, Hanesit was chilly out, so I covered it up with this old Madewell turtleneck sweaterwhich I desperately hope they still have in stores because it is scrumptiously soft.
On top, I added a vintage Burberry trench coatwhich goes with absolutely everything. I spontaneously met up with a friend in Williamsburg after work for drinks on a school night! Who is she?
We gabbed and gossiped, quickly moving from one bar to the next. We ultimately met up with a few more of her friends before returning to her apartment for a nightcap. I took an Uber back across the bridge at 1 a. Perfect for a party mood. Inspired by old Hollywood movie stars. My interpretation: This was my favorite outfit all week. Do you ever throw something on and get it right on the first try? It was too cold to wear an open neck, so I opted instead to layer a white turtleneck from Gap over my thrifted floor-length white lace dress.
Overall, I had a ton of fun pushing the boundaries of my style and manipulating the contents of my closet in order to meet these challenges. I watched her flip through the images on my phone, a blank expression on her face. After a few minutes, she handed it back to me.
