|I could never pull off white gloves and a pillbox hat. Oh well.|
This whole challenge was really flattering and ill-advised because in the email they said, "they love my individual sense of style." This comes as a total shock to the girl whose current outfit probably costs $25 and consists 20% of hand-me-downs. Even though it is clear that I am NOT a fashion icon, it gave me a chance to play around on Polyvore a little. I can see that this site will be a HUGE time suck in the future, because you can create dream rooms and outfits so that you wish you could afford/attain.
The building block they gave me was the coach tour dress in noir. Because I likes to keep it classy but not fussy, I mixed in autumn-y colors. [Tangent: They said use at least 7 other items, however I went a little apeshit with accessories. I am a magpie.] I am usually not a huge proponent of mixing black and brown, but I liked it here for some reason. It has all my staples...like a wallet with a fat dog on it (Newman) and a cute mug! Because it is a "dream outfit"...I hypothetically cyber splurged on a fancy purse and nice boots. [Tangent: A far cry from my $1.99 Goodwill clutch and my own brown boots, which, in reality, are from Ross Dress for Less.]
Hope that you liked this foray into fashion blogging. Not sure I can pull it off, but it was a fun to pretend for a day! I gotta go....I have hours to waste on Polyvore. I am about to become the Howard Hughs of dream boards.
