Matchy-Matchy

I have always loved the show “What Not to Wear” and one of the lines that always stuck with me was “It doesn’t have to match, but it does have to GO”. I’m reminded of that quote all the time when trying to put outfits together. But sometimes a perfect match is just what an outfit needs for perfection.

I bought this scarf a year ago to wear as a turban (I’ve worn it several times), and I love the colors in it. When I found this eShakti dress I knew it was a perfect match for my much loved turban. Usually when I wear a turban, I want it to compliment the colors, texture or print that I’m wearing, and I think this does all three.

I recently bought these adorable shoes from Re-Mix Vintage Shoes. And as with most on-line buying I was worried about how they would fit/look/feel. I was not disappointed at all. I have very painful plantar fasciitis and I can’t wear a lot of my cute shoes right now. I also have to wear insoles to help with my condition, so I was pleasantly surprised to find that my insoles fit comfortably in these shoes and I was able to wear them all day without any extra strain on my feet. I think I’ll have to get another pair…maybe in blue???

And lets’ just take a moment to adore this charming brooch. I have several “culinary” type brooches, but this is a complete set and it’s just amazing.
