“I like to do new things, so I always take on roles that I feel will keep me on my toes. I never want to pigeon myself, so I always like to surprise myself. I believe in versatility and so I would play anything as long as it was a challenge.” – Archie Panjabi

One thing I love about fashion is how versatile it actually is. There’s nothing I enjoy more but playing with fashion. My style is ever-evolving;  it’s hard for me to describe my style in just a few words, however, ever-evolving is spot on. Fashion trends come and go, and I’ve learned over the years that it’s not so much about trends but about knowing how to dress. It’s important to know what flatters your body type, and what doesn’t. Once you’ve figured that out the fun can begin!

For instance, I never thought I’d wear a backpack with a midi dress but the dress in itself is so flattering and somewhat edgy. The backpack was the perfect addition to this dress, and it also gives it somewhat of a surprise factor. You see, I like to surprise myself every once in a while, too. My husband and son love the backpack – which is probably due the fact that they have never seen me wearing one – but there’s is always a first, and I bet that this won’t be the last time.

After all, I like playing with fashion.

As always, thanks so much for reading and have a fabulous Monday!

Much love, always.

    I aso agree with you Vanessa. That’s the best thing about fashion. I don’t have a specific style either; I don’t follow trends, although I do like to know what’s current. I just like to wear what best suits me. You look great by the way.

    Great post! versatility and fashion go hand in hand!

  27. March 21, 2016 / 9:48 PM

    I hope you had a great Monday!
    For the longest time when I was a teen, and in my early twenties, I would only wear small backpacks rather than handbags. I just find classic purses inconvenient because my hands are not free! I’ve evolved with time and now I’ve abandoned the backpacks but I usually stick to crossbody bags.

  28. March 21, 2016 / 9:49 PM

    You know I’m in love with your backpack too! This mix between feminine and edgy is absolutely wonderful and you look your best! Have an amazing week Vanessa!
