I must say that Boston is doing a spectacular job at creating their own style scene. Somehow the mixture of New England Classic Prepster, Hipster, Punkster and Hip Hop Rock star really plays off each other nicely and balances well. Everyone has good representation of their style in this small city and it’s great.
There’s a handful of boutiques that if I had access to $40k a month to go shopping at every month to fulfill my style needs. Out with my friend Billy and his fabulous dolls Briana and Ashley we made way to one of Boston’s Best Kept Jewels. I’ll leave them nameless for the simple fact that they have some of the worst customer service ever and it’s like “Really?!” Ain’t Nobody Got Time For That!However, they are one of the few boutiques that carry Balmain, Kenzo, Givenchy, rare Galliano(another love) and more…….
I really appreciate the intricate details that go into clothing of Balmain & Givenchy. Balmain is one of those brands that you can literally look at and recognize right away without even seeing a tag! It’s simple gorgeous, as for Givenchy. However, I never see it worn in Boston unfortunately. It’s sad but true. The fall collection is simply stunning too and it’s a shame that I won’t see anyone in Boston wearing it, well maybe if I go to Bijou. Both men and women can appreciate.

So I’m sitting at Club Cafe hosting a pity party for myself and the conversation at the other end of the bar isn’t all that intriguing right away. However, someone needed directions and the directions they were all wrong so I decided to chime in. Chime in, was probably the wrong to do. He asked me where to go “I said 9 Newbury St”….to which he plugged into his GPS on his phone. I looked at him and said that he was spelling it wrong. I said “Not Berry, Bury.” He looked at me puzzled and confused. That’s when another person at the bar chimed in and said “Welcome To Boston!”…..THE SHOCK THAT CAME OVER MY FACE! I looked at the boy who was from Savannah, GA and asked him “Do I talk like a Bostonian?”…..not answering right away he looked at me and then said with a nice smile “Yes you do sweetie. It’s ok. Your hair is fierce though!”
All my life I’ve tried not to talk like a Bostonian but what ended up happening…Anyways….the point of this blog was something else but I had to share this since it was freshly happening as I was writing the main focal point.
I like to think of myself as a Chameleon in some ways. I like to change it up & shake it up. Spice is the variety of life and keeps us interesting characters. So I always tell myself I’m going to reinvent myself into something fabulous. I used to have a daring edge and have a bit more of an edge when I was younger. So I thought.

I know it’s normal to feel in a style rut sometimes. It’s normal and happens to everyone. This is my inspiration for the fall though. I think that incorporating some of these themes and elements into my Style Renovation for the fall will give me an edge. The edge that I miss about myself. The edgiest I get now is blonde hair and my new-found love for black eyebrows. That’s rather disappointing and boring.
I’d like to know what you do when you get into a fashion rut? How do you pull yourself out? Do you go through your closet and reinvent yourself that way? Feel free to share your thoughts. I will respond to everyone that leaves a comment.
