A Change Would Do You Good

I'm beginning to appreciate the daring fabric combinations some people wear. Admittedly, some mixes still hurt my eyes (and my sensibilities). Yet others are not only daring but show a great sense of design and flair (in my opinion). I myself have become more adventurous in my pattern choices — although not yet in public. Unless, that is, I get hit by the proverbial bus.

Would a change do me good?

      I used to be mostly solid colors, especially underwear. Too bad, the combo photos of my outfits were only in gray and black. I've got some other combos that are a lot more vibrant.

    2. And, Ron... I've never really gotten into boxers (literally, I guess). I'm a bit uncomfortable with all hell breaking loose.

  3. The middle image in the first picture is very appealing; she has a wonderful sense of style. I think Grampa dressed the boy - or is it the other way around? Your T shirt and undie combo is very understated, almost elegant

      I agree about the sari. It was beautiful and really elegant... unlike my combo, which I see you think is "almost" elegant. Humph!

      Just the idea of underpants on the bed or these specific underpants?

  6. One of these days someone is going to realize you're taking a picture of their rear... just how are you going to explain that?

      Oh, I'm smooth. I've already got explanations in my head. But San Geraldo gets far away from me whenever he sees me trying this.

  7. Your sheets are quite similar to mine... scary that, lol.

    Love the middle photo in the first row, she has fashion sense! Your choices, as always, exude understated elegance.

      Those sheets belong to the Dowager Duchess. (Mine are so much more macho.) And, yes, that sari was brilliant. She really had style and class.

  8. You're much more adventurous with patterns than I am.

  9. I say yes to a change. :) Coco Chanel said look in the mirror and take one thing off before you leave the house. I'm more of an add three more things person. :)

      Well, I'm usually wearing a shirt, shorts, and sandals. Maybe I should take off the shorts?

  10. I think you need a Spo shirt!! They go with anything because viewers cannot take their eyes off the shirt to be startled by anything else you are wearing.

  11. Mitchell I think Europeans look better and more fashionable

  12. I only dress like that unintentionally - that is, when I'm trying to be fashionable.
    No threat to Geraldo, please, when I say this: nice butt.

  13. Yes! Colour! and more of it! Bright cherry red and kelly greens!

  14. I'm finding that clashing patterns is sort of in vogue somehow. My daughter thinks nothing of wearing polka dots with plaid. It almost makes me ill.

      The style has begun to grow on my. Many fashionable people (like your daughter) do it on purpose and do it well. Others don't have a clue. You can usually tell the difference.

  15. Yes, I would agree those combinations display more "flare" than "flair"!
