Home again...and working to catch up on everything that accrued while I was away. Funny, isn't it, how sometimes it's easier NOT to take a vacation? Well, hopefully it only feels that way once you've returned from wherever you've gone.
While I was visiting family for Thanksgiving, I had the opportunity to watch a very entertaining show on Animal Planet called It's Me or the Dog. Actually, it was more than one episode -- for a reason I cannot fathom the network was airing any number of them back-to-back. And my mother being the dog-lover that she is, wanted to watch them all.
The take-away from this is that I was utterly impressed with the "star" of the show, dog-trainer Victoria Stilwell. She is the perfect example of someone with a very well-defined style persona and a very minimalist approach to style. Her entire wardrobe appears to be black and white, with an occasional third color, usually red. Her "uniform" consists of black, slim cut pants or jeans, heeled black boot, and some sort of blouse/vest/belt combo. It's not too often that you see such a clear depiction of stylish, minimalist dressing these days, so I was quite happy to have run across this near-perfect example to share with you. Even if her style persona doesn't match yours, there's still much to learn from her example. I'm going to be keeping my eye on Victoria Stilwell!
Here is a video clip from the show for you to enjoy:
