The respond to my last post was so interesting that I had to follow up. You all had great ideas about the dress Terri sent me, and how to wear it. To wit,
Rubiatona: Yellow cardigan, blue or gray flats, bangles galore.
mademarian: High-heeled gladiators, carefully done hair, big beautiful brooch
Susan: Bangles, colorful necklace
Duchesse: Blue Fluevogs
Crissa: Biker booties and jacket
Kelli: Colored jewelryCaroline: Bright patent leather or woven yellow braided belt.
Janet: Bright cardigan
Karena: Bright cardigan
Flo: Add white shirt
FLT: Become a 20-25 year old:)
But do I own this?
Nope. Not even close. Although I do occasionally consider buying biker booties and a jacket, for sheer waywardness.
I find it quite interesting that you all had similar ideas, ideas similar, by the way, to how Terri wore the dress originally, and yet I can’t put a single one into action. Sometimes one’s closet speaks louder than words. It turns out that I’m not one to pop up an outfit with color or accessories. This in turns explains the great deal of thought I put into finding daily basics. Good news is I could probably come up with a white shirt.
Elizabeth and I are discussing a new home for the dress. If the measurements don’t work for her, Donna your turn. Unless Mags’ MIL prevails. Community is all.
And here, by the way, is the photo of Terri in the same dress. A mini-tutorial in colored accessories, if you will.
