Kalinda was my favorite character on The Good Wife. I think it was her evenness and complete facial control – masking sentiment. Little but fierce (the bat and careful laying of traps to remove enemies from the situation).
As for her style – fitted office wear basics and great boots.
- Believable comfort.
- Clothes that may as well have been armor.
- No purse [I could not lol] -> phone and notebook.
Alicia usually looked nice, but her heels were too much to even hint at comfort for me – and I’m no fan of suits (I will call it Baptist Rebellion as many of the ladies at church can’t get enough of them – the more ostentatious the better 😐 ).
I liked Dianne’s clothing too – but it doesn’t fit easily into my life and it is too pristine…I could don Alicia and Dianne garb only for church – and that is just too much like right 🙂 Maybe when I am 60? 70-80 for sure.
I can see myself in what Kalinda wears. I have little/no use for suits or high heels. I can see it in bleachers, in a school gym, at a PTSA meeting, even church with a slightly longer hemlines, out with the girls or on a date…
What do I already have?
- Moto jackets/vest
- Minis and semi-minis
So why not have a Kalinda Sharma outfit day?! Which pieces??? Boots are easy. Brings me back to needing the perfect black skirt! Until then, maybe:
- Black Express studded moto
- Black Express peplum cami
- Black waist belt
- Navy Alfani skirt
- Black tights
- Black boots – with buckles [the noisier pair, I like the jingling]
I found good article here also. It put a rather fine point on how K uses her clothes to distract. I tend to choose for expression but distraction is a good idea too!
Note to self -> think of a look with the worn-once moto vest!
