If you have an upcoming Christmas party you need to come up with an outfit for, instead of thinking I need to buy something new to wear, why not think, what do I already have in my wardrobe that could be dressed up with some fabulous decoration?
Try and imagine this outfit (pictured) without the red lips, sparkly bag and jewels and simple up-do. What you would have, would be just a skirt & top (albeit lovely and in this case a very expensive skirt and top) – not an outfit.
Don’t underestimate what accessories (and the finer detail) can achieve – alternatively how bad accessories can ruin an otherwise great look. *Remember Julianne Moore in these shoes?
*The key when you look at images like this is not to think, she’s 20 years younger than me, 2 feet taller and 5 dress sizes smaller….wearing diamonds and Chanel. You need to be imaginative and creative. When I first saw this picture one of the first things that came to mind was that I could make a similar necklace/choker to the one she’s (stylist, Caroline Sieber) wearing with a large vintage brooch and a piece of black ribbon. (Of course, we all know I am a BIG fan of D.I.Y.) The photo also reminded me of the impact a red lip can have and how it has the ability to bring all the attention up to the face.
