Why is fashion so fleeting? Wasn’t it only yesterday that I was rockin’ low-rise jeans? Now they’re in my closet, hidden behind Juicy Couture tracksuits and ruffled mini-skirts .
I started off my challenge with a pastel green skirt. Even when it was trendy, it was difficult to find the right occasion to wear it. Wearing it to work? Quelle horror! I knew I would need to pair it with a conservative top but it didn’t quite work with a button-down shirt. It did, however, match a blue off-the-shoulder top. Having seen great uses of blazers on your site, I quickly turned a casual outfit into corporate appropriate attire by adding a black blazer. I updated the style by rolling the sleeves up. To complete the outfit and inject some conservatism, I added gold bangles with charms from H&M, Charles David slingbacks and a Chanel clutch. Utilizing the key themes from your blog- accessorize and colorize, I managed to produce an outfit that’s far more interesting than my usual black and white work uniform. The best part? It didn’t cost a cent! Thanks FrillsandRuffles! Keep up the good work. I look forward to stealing more ideas!
Oh Swan, bravo for embracing colors! The pastel skirt is both delicious and refreshing like a summer Mojito! Swan you are true to the spirit of FrillsandRuffles! I’m so glad you were able to find new life for clothes that you thought were once out of fashion!
Nothing makes me happier than to hear that I am making a difference in people’s lives. So to all the fans out there, I heart you too!
If I have inspired you in any way, I would love to hear from you!
