I hit the holy trinity of outfit blogging--Thrifted, Vintage, and Designer all in one look! I'm also pretty proud of how feminine this look is. My friend over at Clothes Karma pointed out to me recently that I really do androgyny well, which is something she feels she can't pull off. I admitted to her that I can't pull off overtly fem/frilly looks. But what do you know, here I am with some ruffles and lace! Seriously though, this works because the palette is neutral and the accessories are basic. If this were in bright colors or mixed patterns with a bunch of statement pieces I'd be in costume territory for sures.
So today's lesson is: Don't completely disregard a type of style/aesthetic/trend. Think about subtle ways you can play with it/incorporate it into an overall look. Like in relationships, some outfits needs points of compromise.
My self-help book "Healthy Living through Outfitting" will be available in bookstores this fall. :) I wish...
