Aw, I knew this was coming but didn't think to take a picture when I wore this outfit "for real" the other day. The reason for wearing it was test-driving my red sandals after Jenn's excellent advice to reality check if all my shoes were as wearable as I thought they were. They didn't even make it through the night! But here it is again,sans shoes, with an added "bonus"--striped bathroom towels The fancy belt is a timid step towards pattern mixing. Am I doing it right? Rachylou has a long way to go to unleash the bold dresser inside me, lol.
I was planning to wear a striped skirt today, just so I could post it here, but the way it fits is a no-go.
I've also attached a pic that is clearly not me, of a shirt that gave me sales goggles a few months ago. "Under $15? Awesome! I can toss that on with so many things" So much for my claims to being a careful consumer! I haven't "tossed it on" because it's hotter than Hades here, and will be for a couple more months, but I'm trying to think if it actually will be as useful as it seems. I'd love to get suggestions.So far I can see wearing it with solid red or purple.
Sal, that orange top looks great on you. I didn't notice the trash bag in #2 until you mentioned it, because I was too distracted by how great your hair looks in that shot.
Jenn, if you're going to take Sal's word for it that there are stripes there, then we'll have to believe you that there are also stripes in #1. They're hard to see too. I like the look in #2, and in #4 I see you're showing me how pattern mixing works.
Kkards, I like the crispness in #1. The interplay of pink horizontal stripes and the vertical created by the cardi in #3 is a fun effect.
Joy, down here in fashion pre-k, I'm still afraid to wear a topper that's shorter than the under, even though my head knows it's a way to add structure. You give me courage, because you look absolutely great in #2.
Firecracker and JAileen, cool top/dress combining stripes with lots of other things!
