I assume you, just as well as I, have read countless articles and posts about what every woman should have in her wardrobe. Items featured (at least here in Austria) are: a pair of denim blue jeans. A black dress. A white t-shirt / a white blouse. A pair of comfortable black or navy high heels (as if that existed!).
Not only do all of these articles come to the same conclusion, they also all casually mention to “pimp” the outfit by adding something with color. It may be the colorful bag, or the fancy sunglasses, or they prefer colorful jewelry.
Today’s fun accessory is the nail polish. It’s super subtle mint green with a holographic effect called Mint to be. I must admit that I loved it more on swatches than on my nails – I got a little bored from it after wearing it a day, but that is the case with most pastel mint greens.
It was my first experience with a polish from Liquid Sky Lacquer – I was panting for the beautiful 24K Gold, a thermal nail polish from Liquid Sky Lacquer, that I finally managed to order (it’s not that I’m too stupid, it’s because it was sold out!).
The quality of the nail polish was good. I applied two coats and base- and topcoat. The holographic effect is visible and takes over the color in the sunlight, when it is hard to tell if the nail polish is just silver or mint. In the shade the mint color is more visible, and then the nail polish has an air of understated elegance about it.
Back to the everywoman’s wardrobe – what does it mean? Firstly (for the point of this article), I’m going to assume that all of you are female. I assume all of you own pants (except those of you who insist that leggings are pants, which they’re not!).
I assume all of you own a t-shirt of some kind, may it be white or not. I think I’m still on a safe road when I assume all of you have a dress (you’re reading a blog about nail polish after all).
So if you have everything needed for the everywoman’s wardrobe, why are we so magically drawn to these articles? I can’t tell you. I only know that my “basics” have consistently changed, even more so than the other pieces of my wardrobe. Then again, I wonder, what do women’s magazines tell you is the everywoman’s wardrobe in your country? Don’t be shy, I’d really like to know: is the everywomen really every one’s woman? What are you “supposed” to have in your closet?
I’m wearing: blouse: H&M, tank top: H&M, jeans: Uniqlo, necklace: gift from my mum, shoes: Toms, bag: Freitag, sunglasses: Marc Jacobs.
