Do-Over: White Dress & ChambrayPosted: August 14, 2014
Did you ever look through your old photo albums and just cringe at whatever you were wearing back then? The thing about having a style blog is that you get that all the time. Or at least I do. I was looking through my archives the other day and noticed a bunch outfits that started out as good ideas, but the execution is meh, or outfits that I thought were good ideas back then but now they are more like “WTF was I thinking?” So I decided to take those outfits and re-style them, keeping the basic idea while trying to improve the execution. I kind of did it already here, but even then I was not exactly happy with the second try. I’m going to make it a more regular feature of the blog now. And hey, it can be greatwhen I don’t know what to wear – just pick an old outfit that I don’t like and make it better!
So, for my first do-over, I picked this outfit. I like the idea but it ended up looking really awkward because I messed up the proportions (always a problem area for me). I fixed it by choosing a more fitted chambray shirt, getting rid of the belt, and keeping the footwear simple to stay true to the relaxed feel of the inspiration pin.
What do you guys think?
