I've been watching a lot of What Not To Wear lately...and you already know I'm a huge fan of Tim Gunn's Guide to Style. Heavens knows I need serious help. I've been in a funk ever since I got a new job back in March or rather since I graduated from college. See there really isn't a dress code. It's just casual. So most of my old work clothes are slacks and business casual. Whereas my new work I can wear jeans.
I don't want to be too casual. I need a good balance of nice and casual. Here's an outfit I found to be successful. (Let's hope!) I'll try to post some outfits (good and bad) periodically.
Skirt: Double Pocket Tulip Skirt in Dark Chambray by Shade Clothing
Top: Signature Cap Sleeve in Magenta by Shade Clothing
Cardigan: Cropped Short Sleeve Cardigan in White by JJ Basics from BP in Nordies (can't find pix)
Shoes: DV by Dolce Vita 'Olive' Sandal purchased at Nordies
Accesories: Black earrings purchased in West Village, NYC (no pix, sorry)
Makeup: Light (mascara, eyeshadow, clear lip gloss)
So what do you think? Be honest. I think it is okay. I'm thinking I need more detail and texture since everything is solid. I will say everything fits correctly, though the skirt is a lower quality it still is fun and I love the pockets.
High: Summery, fits well, fun shoes
Low: all solids, no texture, need more shape and accessories?
What do you think?
