It seemed like a good idea at the time….

IMG_2346Ever have an idea in your head that seems so good but doesn’t work when you put it on?  That’s today’s outfit.  I mean really, how could a silk tank go wrong?  But apparently, it’s a proportion thing.

  • Purple print silk tank (J.Jill, old)
  • Purple Cardigan (Coldwater Creek)
  • Black ponte pants (Coldwater Creek)
  • Black bracelet (Jessica Simpson, purchased from Little Black Bag)
  • Black cameo necklace (Eloquii, old)
  • Black and white bag (Kate Spade, clearance after christmas – great deal)

So what am I not happy with?

  1. The tank is too long and hangs funny over my hips)
  2. The cardigan shape may not be one I should every buy again; it doesn’t seem flattering.  That was no big deal over a tank from the same knit, but is very obvious with this top.
  3. The necklace isn’t showing up at all; it blends into the top and disappears, which sucks because I really like this necklace

Ah well.  Every outfit can’t be a winner.  And since I’m an OUTFIT blogger and not a fashion blogger (IE I don’t claim to know a ton about fashion, just about what I like and think looks good) I can get away with that!

Still, retiring this outfit after today; I may add the tank to the donate pile or possibly even try to sell it on ebay along with those purses.  Not like it would be a special trip to the post office.


If you have a moment, I would LOVE to collect some opinions on haircuts I am considering.  Take a moment and put a comment below on which of these you think would be most flattering on me (the cuts, not the colors…I’m not going blonde…):
