Old Styles, New Styles

My hairdresser for a number of years was a fantastic man named Carlos.  Eventually Carlos decided to become a therapist, and after all the requisite years of schooling, he left the hairdressing profession to move on to the next phase of his professional life.  If he's even half the therapist he was as a hairdresser, he's already doing the world a great service.

One time, Carlos and I were discussing why people stuck with hairstyles that had gone tragically out of fashion or were not flattering to who they'd become.  He told me, "Well, we all tend to return to the styles that have served us well." Isn't that that truth.

I probably wouldn't have purchased a pair of cropped brown velvet pants.  Because it's true, I tend to reach for the same trusted styles over and over.  However, my office mate Veronica received these pants accidentally bundled in with an order she made online, and they were exactly my size.  "Run to the bathroom and try these on!" she exclaimed when she opened them. "You're going to look great in these!" Sure am glad I did.
