Coming to terms with your personal style. Everyday tip #58

Did you hear? The Oscars were last night. I'm sure you've heard, but as a blogger my inbox is positively bursting with pitches about Oscar style and how to look like you are walking the red carpet and whatnot.

I honestly don't see the point of these stories. I mean, if I was ever to be at a party with George Clooney and that Desjardins cutie patootie, then maybe I would be interested in how to wear a Dior gown with millions in diamonds. But since that hasn't happened yet, I have to make do with what I wear in my real life.

Of course, that can be a bit depressing if you let it. Sometimes I find creative dressers on the internet or in magazines and I wonder why I don't dress like that.

I have a uniform: simple, neutral clothes and bright accessories. It works for me.

Every time, and I mean every single time, I buy something outrageous I end up never wearing it. What's the point of that?

I've had to learn to accept my simple tastes.
