When FASHION Magazine presented this runway-to-real world style challenge last week, I thought I would take it for a spin in the coldest, harshest, most challenging terrain I could find.
Central Park. (Yes, with a latte in hand.)
Winter pastels are so pretty and feminine, and thus I would feel like an idiot / a fat piece of cotton candy in periwinkle or powder blue. And I never wear pink -- except on Wednesdays -- so this style challenge, was a bit challenging to say the least.
I opted for dove grey and cream, and in true New York fashion, tried to cover it with black. I stomped around Central Park in gold heels and fringe (although I imagine many-a-hooker have done the same), made moose calls to get in touch with nature (you can take a girl out of Canada, eh?), but mostly, just felt like I was trying too hard to make

Winter pastels = sartorial dissatisfaction, guaranteed? That's yet to be determined. I always say, you need to try things twice (especially drugs but I'm totally kidding) before making a decision. So, stay tuned. Maybe.
