Once you choose hope, anything is possible.

Thoughts and project in progress

I have a burgundy ribbed cowl neck top in progress. The rib is badly bahaved and needs elastic in the seams. It may be a while before you get to see it.

I have been doing some personal style exercises and came up with this as what I am aiming for.

Simple clothing which fits well.  Moderate blended colours in clothing, tastefully assembled in a thoughtful manner which is interesting but not overwhelming. A little spark in each outfit which makes it fun or different without being too out there. Individual in a calmly assertive way.

be interesting to see how that goes.

I think I'm going to add - QUIRKY -  to my style words as well and perhaps also FUN?

in short--elegant and lady-like.

interestingly 'ladylike' is not really how I would have decribed myself.

I think the addition of fun would be good but overall it does sound both applicable and achievable.

Wonderful mission statement! You'll use it well, Ruthie1!

I find that having style mission statements for both my wardrobe and for my home-style has simplified my being able to achieve a consistent but lively result... Your statement about your wardrobe seems congruent with what I see you choose to make that you say you enjoy and that works with your activities... but by all means include a bit of fun and quirky too
