Let Julia be Julia.

Mary, Mary, I love you!  I love your style and the way you take risks with it and mix it up and get away with wardrobe choices I never could … and you definitely push me in (some of) the right direction(s).

But darling girl, I’ve gotta be me!!  And I’m a girly girl.  Always have been.  Probably always will be.  I like bows and ruffles and pinks & reds and A-line skirts that emphasize my waist.  We can mix it up a little, but geez louise it’s VALENTINE’S DAY!!!  If there’s ever a day to wear a costume-y dress like this, that’s it.  Oh, yeah, and I’m wearing a crazy pink tulle dress for my birthday.  I want a Get Out of Style Free card for both of those!

Compromise, my little coughing love.  Compromise is important in a working relationship.

Julia, my vintage love, of course I want you to be you.  But let’s consider these three facts, and then I will drop it, because at the end of the day, you are absolutely right, wear what you want, feel confident and sexy, and enjoy it!  Of course you know you would look hot and conquer the world in a burlap sack.

  1. There are so many ways to be feminine and girly without wearing a poodle skirt and pink.  Think of flowing chiffon, sweetheart tops, one shouldered draped dresses, mini dresses, open back blouses and dresses, skinny pants (all of which can be pink). 
  2. You find an excuse every day for wearing a high-waisted A Line skirt, so where this reason would usually be perfectly valid, you cry wolf all the time!
  3. You have someone designing a dress for you, let her help you find a new shape that makes you look beautiful and tiny. Could open all kinds of doors.

So, I’ve said my piece. Enjoy your Valentine’s day out and about wherever that will be, and despite that I’ve seen the silhouette on you before, it does look beautiful on you.  You will knock your date dead for sure!  I will be in PJ’s (not pink or decorated with hearts) with my man Mason.
