Today, I want to talk about Tabitha Coffey.
Tabitha WHO? you may ask? Tabitha has a show on Bravo called “Tabitha’s Salon Takeover” and it is pretty brilliant. Basically, she goes into these trashy, failing hair salons and whips them into shape with her sharp Australian accent and sassy platinum hair.
Now, there is another reason I like Tabitha besides her biting wit and ability to whip idiots into shape. I. Love. Her. Style.
You might be wondering, “What in the world are you talking about, Tier?! She wears only black!” Yes, yes she does, my dear kittens. But look how she wears it! Sequins! Leather! Knits! The shapes! The textures! Tabitha is a wonderful example of how to dress mono-chromatically.
My job is at an extremely conservative firm, and most of my nutso (read: awesome) clothes are out of the question. No over the knee boots or leopard overdose or sequins allowed. As I don’t have the budget to completely revamp my wardrobe with basic pieces, I do tend to fulfill dress code by wearing mostly black. (Yesterday? Black sweater dress and black chevon tights. Today? Black lace dress and black chevon tights. Tomorrow? Black black ;alsdjfasljf. I can get away with a little more fun things if I keep it all in black.) Tabitha is a great inspiration to inject life into your basic black.
