I’m fairly confident in my fashion sense. I know what I like; I know what looks good on my figure; I know what’s in (and, more importantly, out) of style. I have to admit, however, that today’s agenda gave me a little wardrobe stress. Dressing for a fashion trade show in Italy on a commoner’s budget is not for the fainthearted. That’s squarely where I found myself this morning as I got ready for Origin: Passions and Beliefs in Vicenza. This trade show puts Italian suppliers together with artists, designers, buyers, and fashionphiles from around the world together in one convenient location.
In the end, I decided to play it cool and easy: destructed jeans, a lace top, simple pumps and a statement bag. Except for the lady wearing what appeared to be a metal kitchen strainer on her head, I looked pretty much like every other attendee. Score one for the American Midwesterner trying to fit in!
And guys, cut me some slack on the photo. I am *so* not a model, I have a 6-year-old photographer, and I haven’t learned Photoshop. (What business do I have blogging, right?)
