How I Style My Outfits

How I Style My Outfits

Howdy dolls!  You know what I get asked a lot?  

"How do you style your outfits?"  

I have to say, this always surprises me!   Most days I feel quite plain, and don't feel to be one to be receiving this complimentary question.  However, I'll take it, and will post again when it comes to my formal attire.  Today's outfit is sort of casual, but cute enough to go somewhere while showing off my vintage inspo.  If I'm wearing my hair down, my ears can most likely be seen without any jewels, and that would go for my wrist, neck, and the rest of it too.  Although I love seeing other girls with stacks of colorful bakelite, a matching novelty brooch, and a complimenting hair piece, I feel like I'm buried in a big ol' cluttery mess if I over accessorize myself.       

I love wearing separates!  Like this pairing, I wore a vintage style, pinup graphic tee by Mischief Made, yet still feel cute and sassy in my vintage, midi length, fringe, wrap skirt.  Wearing the two breaks it up while (hopefully) drawing the eye in to my waist line.  Whenever I wear a dress on casual days, I feel like I'm overdoing it, and I never want to look like I'm trying too hard.  

My hair is loose, not anything close to perfect, and I've drawn a dramatic cat-eye and an over lined bold red lip.  Not seen: I had a vintage wicker purse and woven, strappy, faux leather flats.  I chose these materials to add another texture.  Since I am wearing natural cotton on top and a wool skirt, I wouldn't select a woven or knit for any other accessories.  The two vinyl materials add a much needed dimension to my overall look.    So what do you think?  

Are you a less is more OR more is more?

P.S. I have been wearing Mischief Made shirts for several years, and have yet to get sick of them.  They are soft, and Yuri (the owner) makes dozens of girly vintage designs.  My only suggestion is to size up.
