Thumbs up? or Thumbs down?
Anyway, on to the meat of my post. Ever since I got this outfit, I had been looking forward to wearing it -- I got the dress first, and then when I got the cardigan, I couldn't get over how the colors were such a perfect match. Bingo, an outfit was born.
dress -- Sag Harbor (thrifted)
cardigan -- Ann Taylor Loft (thrifted)
boots -- American Eagle (Payless)
That fateful day finally came when all the planets were aligned, and I said, "By gosh and by golly, I'm going to wear that dress and cardigan outfit!"Oh my. Where do I start?
I don't even know what it is that I don't like about this outfit, but there's just something about it ... I didn't even realize how much I didn't like it until I saw the pictures, and then I was the one who was horrified.
|Oh my, is right!|
I even tried switching out the boots. Yeah, I will actually carry a couple of pairs of shoes into work with me, if I can't decide which ones to wear at home, and yeah, I have issues.
These boots weren't any better. So anyway, I don't know if the colors just don't look good on me? I don't know if it's the length? Maybe the color of the pantyhose? Maybe the cardigan is to form fitting for the dress? Maybe it's because the boots hit me at the wrong height -- at the widest part of my calves?
What do you think? Should my thumbs be going in the other direction?
True confession time: I know that this doesn't look as bad as I have made it out to be. But I am serious that I didn't like it AT all. Maybe if I had added a belt? Or jazzed it up with either gold- or mustard-colored tights, I would have liked it better.
