I love to help personal shop. Shopping assistant at your service for sure. This made me think about my Mom's friend who wants me to come help her purge and evaluate her wadrobe and create outfits with what she wants to keep. This sounds really fun right now, I need to get over there and help her soon.
I'm going to create a scenario and have some fun with it to show how limited pieces can create more than limited looks.
The Busy Bee Babe: 1 day, 5 occassions, 5 different looks needed, 5 pieces of clothing & an accessory
9:00 AM Job interview, must look presentable
out by 10:00 AM, quick trip home to change and get shopping list
10:30 Grocery shopping for the week
come home, unload, make a bite to eat and get ready to parent council meeting at 2:00
2:00 Parent council meeting, must look presentable along the casual lines
out by 3:00, pick up kids from school, drop off at friend's house - it's Friday and hubby is taking you out so you arranged overnight at a friend's house
home by 5:00, 1 hour to get ready for date night, must dress suitable for warm summer evening weather, fine dining outlooking the ocean and a fun boardwalk carnival (time to let loose!) after... will need 2 different looks - one fancier and one more casual
6:00 comes, ready to roll... dinner first so you two can dine and watch the sunset while doing so...
digested lol and done by 7:30, head to the board walk for an hour of boardwalk carnival fun... will need to taper the outfit down a bit to not look so "I just fine dined" like
home by 10:30, in bed by 11:00 and that's a wrap lol
Pieces to work with:
Little black black dress, works as a dress or skirt if top is added to layer
Casual black pants
Ruffled tank that does not look sleezy
Button up blouse with good arm cuff options
Vintage beaded cardigan
Your accessory is a beautiful tapestry print scarf (a long one)
Your freebie is a nice pair of black flats that are your all around "everything" shoe
- - - - - - and because you are a lucky lady I will throw in a pair of clip on earrings which work as 1. earrings 2. clip on broach/pin or 3. attachments for the black flats to jazz them up and make them dressier... these ones look versitale enough for all three things:
