Taking yourself to higher heights and deeper depths in fashion...
When I saw this dress, I thought it was...meh. You know, the sound you make when you feel indifferent about something.
I didn't hate it.
But I didn't love it either.
I tried it on and I was a little more convinced but not in LOVE ... (A cosign from a friend got me to that point).
I rationalized that I needed some pieces I could wear to work and that could easily translate from the warmer days in fall to chilly winter temps. And I could take it back if I got it home and thought it was sheer hideousness!
So today as I engaged in my morning routine, the dress came to mind again.
I knew it needed a little pop & sizzle if I was going to wear it.
That's when I thought of my bright orange oxfords...
Three more carefully calculated accessories later, (the necklace, earrings and watch, and I had made magic happen!
...At least in my mind.
I give myself props for taking a garment that was out of my comfort zone and doing something with it I can be confident about.
Is a real Fashionista Challenge...
Taking clothes where your imagination might not go on a normal day and surprising yourself.
