On Style and Smarts

Oscar Wilde had a lot of great, pithy quotes, like this one. Do you agree? I agree with the overeducated part. Just ask my grandmother, who is working her way through the Great Books in her eighties.  As for being overdressed, I have to say that it is possible, and I’ve been guilty of it once or twice. Being overdressed isn’t so much a question of what you’re wearing, though. It’s a question of whether you can pull it off.

    The over educated part-Totally agree. Learning is a never ending process and thankfully our brains can really handle so much information. But is possible. Like could you go to the mall in a gown? It is very possible to be over dressed BUT some people can get away with it if they just know how to carry themselves.

    Regarding fashion: New York Cousin Bobby can always pull it off: dressed to the 9’s & highly educated.
