In The Name Of RomancePosted: February 8, 2012
The ABC’s of Style challenge is “R for Romance”, but I decided not to go with red and/or pink because first, I’m going to try that combo next week for Everybody Everywear anyway, so I don’t want any repeat. Second, and more importantly, I don’t find red/pink particularly romantic. Weird, I know, but to me something soft-colored or lacy looks far more romantic than bright red or pink. I did try wearing this dress with my deep pink sweater, but it looked twee as f**k, so I toned it down a little with the black.
I’ve been struggling with the whole “twee” thing for a while now. I like the style, but I’m always afraid of looking too young for my age. So how do you strike a balance between dressing cute and dressing like a little girl?
