Hi Fab Ones,
In my endeavour to wear my coloured ankle boots, today I decided to wear my cobalt booties with an all black ensemble.
The outfit was inspired by the recent EF Lookbook, but sadly it's a fail. I felt the overall outfit was just too flat and not figure flattering. I did mix textures - coated jersey pants, silk tunic and smooth refined knit sweater - but this all black look even looked boring to me lol. I really think some added texture in the top layer would have been a lot better, or some tonal / colour contrast. My inspiration is pic #4. I did have a blue toned scarf on with it but that didn't help :) Anyway, I generally prefer to share outfits that I think work, but in the spirit of transparency I thought I would share this one.
On the bootie front, I received very complimentary comments about these but I am not loving them. I really do like a more streamlined looked and the blue is a bit jarring for my liking. I think I will hang onto them and try again in Spring and then if they are still not working for me, they can go to a new home.
Hope you have all had a good day. On the upside it was a busy and stimulating day at work :)
