But I know I can learn from mistakes, so let me confess this one and see if you can help me. I'm truly lost at sea here.
A week ago, my favorite retail store (Fox's) had an annual event with new fall fashions. I went and enjoyed myself. (I've gotten over my fear of shopping in public.) I found and bought a pretty cropped sweater in black with white spots. It's a cute piece.
But I really have no idea what to do with it. I spent a lot of time contemplating options and came up empty. The best I could do was wear it over a dress, and that's not working.
Later the same day I spotted a cute pair of red faux-alligator heels with a pointy-toe. Normally not something I'd wear but they're flashy and I want to be bold. Plus, they were only $8.
My mistake was, in my eagerness to savor these two purchases, I put them together. Big fail. They don't go at all. What was I thinking? Was I thinking? Yes, but with a lame brain.
Normally I can't wait to post outfit-pictures and put 'em up quickly. These, however, have been sitting on my computer for a week. I'm half-embarrassed to show them and totally-dissatisfied with my lack of fashion ability.
Let's assume we break the outfit up into two halves, the top and bottom. That cures the basic error. How could I wear this cropped sweater? And what would go with wild pointy-shoes?
Your advice is not only welcome, it's solely needed. Help!!
