Capsule #2 // Outfit 20
I am not going to lie here. I don’t love the way this look turned out. Sometimes you have an idea in your head, but it just turns out kind of meh. But I decided to post it anyway because it could be a good lesson in styling. So pull out your #2 pencils, class. It’s time for Why This Doesn’t Work 101.
For starters, the shoes. The gladiator sandals cut me off at the ankles, and that mixed with the longer length of the skirt…well, it just isn’t flattering. I would have done much better wearing either a chunky heel or a flat sandal sans ankle strap.
The second mistake is the bag. Notice how there is a lot going on up top with the bag and necklace? It’s too much. I should have gone with either a clutch or a little black bag that would blend a little more with the dress and take away some of the visual clutter.
So that’s what I think. Do you agree or not so much?
