Here's the situation. I love whimsy, eccentricity, color. The posts you see here are generally of me "toning myself down" a bit (believe it or not) because I work in an office environment. I'm actually quite good with numbers. I'm organized (in my own unique fashion), efficient and I am well suited to this kind of work...if you could lobotomize me and remove my personality.
My creative side balks at having to be restrained. Professional suits make my skin crawl. I do not own a pair of "practical" shoes. THIS is my idea of conservative.

There is such a lack of style inspiration for creative women once they pass 35. It's like you fall off the map until you turn 70 and then you can start to be as eccentric as you please again. In my opinion, many women appear to be either trying to look 20, trying to blend in with the men, or they simply stop caring and give up altogether. There are a few exceptions. I do love Cate Blanchett. I think she does an amazing job of blending creativity and class. She's slightly edgy, but always feminine.
I'm a work in progress friends. I'm going to continue researching, finding out what feels right and when I feel I've struck upon the right combinations and feel comfortable in my skin again, the outfit posts shall return.
How about you? Do you have any style inspiration suggestions for me? Have you passed into "no mans land", and if so, how did you change your style (or not)? I'd love to hear from you!
