Lessons From Lanvin, perfect timing actually.  I’ve been thinking a lot about my personal style is and what it means, and I couldn’t have rediscovered this article at a better time.
1.)  Be true to thyself, whatever that means to you personally.
2.)  Comfort = true style and true inner comfort. Confidence.
3.)  Stop shopping for endless crap, but pause for the once-in-a-lifetime gems.
4.)  Figure flattery matters.
5.)  Easy one!  If you can’t walk, how can you go out and live your life?
6.)  Stop trying to look like a teenager.  Dress your age, maybe +/- a couple years.
7.)  I’m a cool girl, personality AND colorwise.  Ha.  :)  I mostly wear greens, blues, grays, purples, blacks, silvers.  Sometimes I throw on a pop of warm color for contrast (red, yellow, pink, gold), but for the most part I chill on the cool side of the colorwheel.
8.)  Classic bag: Oversize Oak Mulberry Alexa.  Seriously.  But now to stop shopping so much every season.. 
Thank you, Alber!  I will keep these lessons learned handy for (what I’m sure will be!) frequent reference.  Gotta love Lanvin.  :)
