I know I've mentioned this somewhere before, but I feel it needs mentioning again. I am missing a gene. I know I am. It's the gene I call, "The fashion gene." This missing gene also affects any design ability. I'm terrible at choosing furniture and colors and clothes. I'm as happy covered in dog hair and dirt as most people are dressed up with fancy shoes.
Take, for instance, this recent picture of Natalie Portman:
Most people I know who have commented on this dress said it was hideous. They blasted the rose, they said she made pregnancy look awful, and they even reconsidered seeing her newest movie because of this dress. My reaction? What's wrong with it?
Sure, I might choose a different color (I'm not huge fan of pale pink), and they could have done more with the rose, or they could have made it slightly smaller, but I don't hate the dress. I've definitely seen worse in a dress, and I think it works on her.
Am I wrong in thinking this? Is my style different or missing? I'll let you decide on that one. Until then, I'm going to try to perfect the style I do have. Wish me luck!
