A Year in Review – Day 7
I wouldn’t have thought the Euro Chic look could go terribly awry, but once again, I proved that I can take any style and make it look stupid. The following are some of my best Euro Chic misfires —
I call this look, “The Androgenous Banking Associate.”
This outfit taught me how hideous brown and black can look together, especially when there are two different browns and two different blacks all worn at the same time. Even my cat is trying to get away from this outfit.
Oh, my cape! When I saw this cape at Banana Republic I thought, “Euro Chic? My name is Holly. Nice to meet you.”
But everyone hated this cape. My children (and so many other people) found this cape to be so ridiculous, but now that I look at it, I don’t think it’s really that bad at all. In fact, I think it does look kind of chic!
This jacket, however, is probably one of my lowest style moments this year —
I swear, it’s not a children’s jacket.
I don’t know what it is and I don’t know why I bought it, but I can safely say it is not Euro Chic and it’s definitely not in my closet anymore.
Unfortunately, no one treated me as a “better than” when I wore these confusing/bizarre outfits around town, so I did learn that in order to get that ultra Euro Chic care, you do have to get the look right.
I also learned that no consignment store on Earth will buy your tiny ugly jacket from you no matter how hard you beg. It’s best just to put the wretched thing in a black Hefty bag on the steps of Goodwill and run for your life…
