I absolutely love your blog. I am a horrible, terrible shopper and reading it has changed the way I think about shopping for clothes. I am a little difficult to fit...a size 10-12 on the bottom and 6-8 on top. In the past, when I would find something that fit and looked good, I bought it, without any regard to how it worked into my wardrobe. Then, these items would sit in my closet and sometimes never even be worn because I couldn't figure out what to wear them with.I would wear this dress to work all the time with boots, grey tights and some bright accessories. But that's not very creative and brown can serve as a fun base for blues and corals, especially. Here's one way to liven it up:
Which is the case with this dress. I bought it last year to wear to a party, couldn't figure out what shoes/jewelry etc to wear with it, and it's been sitting in my closet for a whole year (no returns after a week at the store where I purchased it!).
Now, it's party season again and I would love to wear this thing. It's a Dervish dress (made here in Portland--I tried to find a better picture online of a similar dervish dress but couldn't) and works well on my figure because the fabric does not cling at all. But it's boring and needs some serious help, which is why I am emailing you.
Dress - From Dervish in Portland.
Cardigan - In a lovely color with flower details on the shoulder. It would be like wearing a corsage all the time!
Shoes - Flirty peep toes in blue.
Necklace - A statement piece with tiger's eye beads.
Clutch - In platinum from Forever21.
This combo is a little feminine and a little vintage, perfect for a house party or book club meeting.
