Faithful readers may recall that from time to time I engage in a self-improvement kick (which, oddly, never seems to involve diet and/or exercise), and in the latest stage I hired Sal at Already Pretty to help me figure things out. I knew or suspected some of her recommendations, and others were a a complete revelation - I'm long-waisted? I need to wear shorter skirts? What was really helpful was for her to point out entries on my fashion blog of outfits that worked best, plus she drew up several polyvore sets for me. The hardest part of me was to actually inventory my wardrobe. It took me a couple of hours to type everything up. Granted, it was when moving items between seasons, but it was still a long process.
What apparently looks good on me:
One day I wore my purple dress with a red cardi, accessorized with a big black flower pin and my black ballet flats, and got many compliments.
