Modeling in Chico’s fashion show last week was an interesting experience. I think I can say with total honesty that I am not runway material. Everyone in the store was psyched about this new collection and I saw lots of winners myself. I modeled leopard but zeroed in on navy after the show.
Here’s an outfit I snapped with some of the new things. As seldom happens, these all came home with me. The knit denim leggings are quite thick so feel more like slim pants than leggings.
The crisp white tunic is one of Chico’s new no-stain, no-iron shirts. I find the back of the neck of my white shirts is the hardest spot to keep clean. I spray mine with Shout and do all the things but they always end up yellowing. I’m anxious to see how this no-stain material holds up.
Here’s how I wore the outfit last weekend for a day of wandering around the old town Roseville. I loved the necklace but ended up wearing my marbled acetate double hoops. These hoops are a real departure for me because they’re patterned, which I seldom wear. I can’t even explain why I love them, but I do.
You can see the old singer sewing machine on the right behind me that they’ve made into a tractor sculpture. I loved the angel wings on the wall behind me and am still thinking they might look great on the wall of my office.
It was almost too warm for this ruana but because it’s cotton and polyester, it worked well. I love ruana’s because they stay put better than a straight wrap yet serve the same purpose. These leggings will tuck into riding boots later this winter and the ruana will go over a heavier sweater making these great pieces to wear now and later.
Do you wear ruanas?
Thanks for reading and be sure to wear what makes you feel confident.
