Daring To Be Different...Would You?

Friday, December 28, 2012

Ready for a fun post?  I'm all for expressing individuality, so I've collected some some cool and unique ideas that may not be your typical in-the-box styles, and I want you to tell me if you would dare to try any of them.

I'll tell you which ones I would try, and I'd love it if you'd tell me which ones you would do, which ones you love, and which ones you hate. Here we go:

Would you dare to...

1. Wear a pleated plaid school girl skirt?

2. Do a silver French manicure?

3. Wear all white in the winter?

4. Wear sky high ankle straps?

5. Wear a frilly petticoat under your overcoat?

 6. Do an 80's inspired manicure?

7. Tie some colored sashes around your all black dress for an individual touch?

8. Do a festive sparkly green eye?

 9. Totally mismatch your clothes on purpose?

10. Pile on an armload of bracelets and rings?

11. Wear a leather jacket over a gown?

12. Wear puffy fur sleeves?


I would totally try numbers 2, 4, 7, 8, 10 and maybe 12...I'm not sure about that one yet.

What about you??

Remember, like trees and snowflakes, we're all the same; and yet we're all different.  Each one of us is unique and has our own valuable character and purpose. Never ever be afraid to be the individual that YOU are.

  1. I'd wear any of these and do wear them at different times...it's more fun to be different...looking like everyone else hampers who we are and our unique qualities that only we have been given!! Makes life more fun to be daring and bold!! I hope you had a gorgeous Christmas xox

  2. Sharon this is a great post and such a unique idea. I love the way you set it up. It was super fun to read!

  3. I would do 1,2,3,7, and 12. Unfortunately I'm a bit of a stick in the mud and could never mismatch my clothes. I blame it on being an anal Virgo....lol. This was fun!


  4. Great selection of pics!!!

  5. Fun is right. I would do most, forget the high shoes, the puffy sleeves, my feet can't take it and my kids would mock me for looking like a pirate!
    The mismatching of clothes, I personally do not get, and just don't care for it, but a lot of these are fun and a great way to experiment! Fun post Sharon. Best wishes for a fabulous 2013!

  6. Great suggestions! I wish I could do a silver mani just as beautiful as the one on the photo. So pretty. x

  7. I'd definitely do all of them except for #1 :)

  8. Ohhh such a fun post! Love this...lets see, I would wear a plaid skirt (i already have), I'd wear all white, a frilly petticoat, green eyeshadow, mismatching clothes, and a leather jacket over a gown (thats actually a lot I would do, lol!

  9. I would do a lot of those, too, especially the silver french manicure. Fun!

  10. i would do ANY of these. ask anyone who knows me!

  11. I am proud to say I would do all of these without feeling any un ease. The only one I wasn't cray about was the sashes on the black dress great photos too.


  12. I WOULD DO ALL OF THE ABOVE except the nails. I play the harp and the nails would get in the way! BUT GIRL, I wear petticoats anyway and one under a darling overcoat like that is like second nature! And all the jewels? HECK YEAH! I am daring when it comes to dressing. I do however, practice taste, at least I think I do! So I wear clothing that is NOT SUPER TIGHT OR SHORT but rather that is fun and enhances ME. LOVE IT! Happy day my dear, Anita

  13. 9 - 12 perhaps not! The others, I either have done or would do! Loved the post :)

  14. You have just encouraged me to add something else to my {short} list of New Year's resolutions. 'Try More and Experiment'.

    Wishing you a Happy New Year.

  15. Wow i love this! so many amazing colours and such good inspiration!

    blog is wicked! am following you now would love a follow back :)


  16. I try to step outside the box!

  17. How fun - I'd do 1 (but w/a black top), 2 (but NOT to work), 3, 8 (for a party), 9 (I have learned to resist the compulsion to match and sometimes things that seem to clash actually match well!), 10 (bracelets only), 11, and 12 (but fake fur).

    Final disclaimer - "time and place" matters a lot...unless you are in your 20s or 90s and can therefore get get away with all of these anywhere!

  18. I would absolutely indulge in some of these such as the silver french manicure, the green eyeshadow. But def not clash my clothes esp in colours it could turn out to be an eyesore.

  19. I love all the images you've chosen, especially the manicures and those fabulous black and white heels.
    Happy New Year! all the best for you




  20. So much fun inspiration! I love winter white, and lots of bracelets (The Man Repeller calls it an arm party) are growing on me.
