Fashion do’s and don’ts, they are all subjective. And sometimes you have to see your style in a photo before you know: this isn’t the best look for me. It doesn’t need to be egregiously awful, but you know there’s something off. You can still go about your day, but your fashion confidence might flag.
|Welcome to Visible Monday. If you want to participate, it’s so easy: just go to the bottom of this post for the how-to. Link back to Not Dead Yet Style if you like – we’re on Easy Does It “rules” now!|
This look below is fine, it’s a charming ruffled blouse (via ThredUp, similar) and my new favorite funky skirt (from Suzanne’s Vintage Etsy shop). I’m wearing some curly blonde hair by Paula Young, and nifty Steve Madden sneaker-oxfords. But my first reaction when seeing the pic was, “Who is that missionary woman?” All my skin is covered and it looks a bit suffocating. This blouse with a slim knee-length skirt would be lovely.
We try again. I’d already removed my add-on hair, so I just gave my own silver hair a feminine mohawk. I changed out the top for an open-necked Karina dress. Add a gust of wind and bam! I look free and easy. Some of you may prefer look #1, and that’s cool. I feel more like myself in the one below, letting some skin show.
