location: Boston, Mass.
occupation: high school English teacher
wearing: My favorite brown leather boots from a boutique in Harvard Square. The maker is BC, but I can’t remember the name of the shop—I do know it wasn’t The Tannery though; that place makes me nervous it's so perfect. The dress is a Christmas gift from Anthropologie. The designer is Moulinette Soeurs, and my next mission is to have it in blue. It's got side pockets, which no dress should go without. The belt is stamped brown leather and came from Banana Republic a couple of years ago. I’ve also got a pair of my mother’s sapphire earrings on, for good luck.
favorite designers: AmyClaire, Kate Towers, and Anna Lynett from Project Runway season seven. Each one steals my heart with big skirts, ruffles, and feminine colors.
what style means Elizabeth: Expression. Someone should be able to look across the room and know a little something about you just by what you wear. We say we don’t judge a person by their cover, but plenty of us do. So while most would say "Style is all about being comfortable" I think for me, that's a little untrue. Style is rather about being okay with uncomfortable stares and questions like, "Why are you so dressy today?" It's about being comfortable in front of the morning mirror, and then going out into the world and being noticed.
Thanks Elizabeth for stopping by! Wishing everyone a happy Valentine's weekend--and don't forget to stop by tomorrow for the Business of Style!
