The Fashion Poet

I have a very dear Aunt, who shall remain nameless… we’ll call her Aunt Diane for this post.  Anyway, my Aunt Diane has always had a very casual and well put-together personal fashion style.  She is the last person to recognize or acknowledge her own ability to create a polished look for herself, but I’ll be the first to say that this woman has “Style” with a capital “S”.  Most of her style comes from within, an essence, if you will… but I digress.  Over the years she has given me several birthday gifts in the form of fashion accessories; purses, necklaces, a watch.  She seems to know exactly what I like… which is a challenge for most considering my personal style fluctuates depending upon which day of the week it is.  For my recent birthday she gave me a dress… very bold move.  She hit the ball out of the park AGAIN!  It was then that I realized that ALL of the gifts she has ever given me have become timeless staples within my wardrobe.  That is huge… quite a testament to her gift-giving skills.  So this post is simply an homage to my dear Aunt Diane.  She’s a fashion poet who doesn’t even know it!

Here are some pics of my favorite gifts from Aunt Diane:

The dress and belt are Bisou Bisou from JC Penny.  I’ve paired it with a Michael Stars bolero, Express necklace, and Henry Beguelin sandals.

Always remember:  When giving a gift of fashion it truly is the thought that counts, especially if you take the time to consider the recipient’s personal style!
