Doe Deere is a woman who takes great pride in breaking all the rules when it comes to fashion. Her make up line, Lime Crime Cosmetics, was inspired by her desire to show the world beauty is not defined by what “looks best”. To Deere, beauty is whatever makes you feel your absolute best at any given moment.
She launched the Lime Crime Cosmetics line in 2008 and hasn’t looked back since. The line consists of colors so bright and vivid most people would be afraid to wear them.
Being that Deere loves to play around with unique palettes and shades, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that she doesn’t follow the so called rules of fashion. The very nature of her make up line would prove that.
Deere has a little advice for all the women out there who aren’t afraid to veer off the beaten path when it comes to their style. Her advice is simple, don’t be afraid to break the rules.
As you very well know, there are a ton of fashion rules the so called experts want every woman to live by. Some of them include having to stick with occasion specific dressing, avoiding too much color in your hair, not wearing socks with open-toed shoes, not mixing too many patterns, and the one that annoys Deere the most, having to dress your age.
Doe Deere believes true style knows no age. In her opinion, if you like it, you should wear it. She was quoted as saying, “Just because you turned 30 doesn’t mean you need to ditch your fun stuff.”
So here is the moral of the story, what you wear should not be dictated by your age. It should be dictated by what feels right to you. No matter what your age, just do you!
As the late great Aaliyah once sang, age ain’t nothing but a number. If Betsey Johnson can still rock bold colors in her 70’s, why can’t you?
If it makes you happy, wear it! Don’t allow the rules of so called fashion experts to put you in a box. After all, fashion is about being creative and being able to freely express yourself through clothing.
