If you’ve ever looked around my home page, you’ve probably seen the Couture Counsel (“CC”) link under the Pages section. One of my 2011 resolutions is to give my blog both a cosmetic makeover and a navigational tuneup so that I could expand/use the CC section as well as make the blog more user-friendly for readers who may want to research some of the places I’ve written about for their own trips. I’ve received many helpful suggestions from readers and can’t wait to begin renovating this blog!
But for today, as a way to introduce something I’d like to feature at the CC section, I’m posing a question to all you fashionistas. When I mentioned yesterday that I always have a problem with how to wear that tweed skirt, I’d like to know how you would complete this look for me. So far I’ve got the skirt, shoes, and bag. But what goes on top? I’ve thought white…but is that too stark given the injection of the burgundy in the shoes? I don’t feel right wearing a black top with those shoes…but I don’t have a pair of solid grey heels, so let’s pretend it’s the only pair of shoes I have that remotely go with this skirt. And here’s a close up of the black/white tweed fabric and the shade of grey on the trims:
Questions, questions…you see where I’m going with this.
So basically, your mission in this feature is to take the specific key items I provide–skirt, shoes, bag–
and help me find the right top to finish the look. Hopefully with your comments, I will be able to find something you suggest in my closet and then I’ll post the finished look in a later entry. And if this turns out to be a fun feature, I’ll be asking you to submit your own questions so that the rest of us armchair stylists can give you our five cents.
I’ll be here in my closet, waiting for your couture counsel…
