Hi sweets! This post steps quite a bit outside of my usual comfort zone as I am going to turn the virtual focus upon myself for a second. Oh gosh…scary.
Here’s the deal. I really need your help! I’ve attached images here of the clothing items that I will be packing to wear for NY Fashion Week. Yes they are all black…every single thing (unless I count denim as a color).
So you can see why I desperately need your help dear ones. How do I brighten this funereal palette up and do color right? What would you recommend? A neon belt around the dress? A bright tank under the beaded top? You can see how flummoxed I am. Ack! Any little tips, tricks, or shopping links you can share will be forever appreciated. P.S. I also feel like I should mention that I had to go out and buy just about everything you see here for this trip since my usual day-to-day blogger “style” is of the comfortable jeans and 5-yr old t-shirt variety. This is also the first dress I’ve owned in about 9 years (my last one was a wedding dress)! At least I have a few good staples in my closet now though, right?!
