Sometimes, we get a Personal Shopper request that gets us so intrigued, we find it impossible to narrow down our options. We decided, therefore, that our beloved readers should help, since you're all as fashion-obsessed as we are. Introducing.... YOU Be the Stylist: We're faced with a reader who can't decide what to pair with a piece of clothing they've purchased. Neither can we. We'll let you vote.
Tiffany R. wrote, Hello, Outblush! I am in a bit of a pickle. And yes, it's to do with attending a wedding! Which is coming up in October! One of my oldest and dearest friends is getting married, but my invitation was lost in the mail, so I didn't find out until today that the wedding was moved up from Feb 2011 to late Oct 2010. Eek! The wedding events aren't super-fancy (after the ceremony, which as far as I know is still being held in a train museum, we're hanging out in a very nice beer garden), but I live in jeans, tennis shoes and T-shirts/casual blouses, so from my perspective I have to dress up quite a bit. Nothing I own right now will do. To make things more difficult:
1. I am not a dress gal. So nice pants and a lovely blouse for me! I like having some short sleeves, but am willing to use a cardigan or something. I love wearing color.
2. I wear a 22-24-ish top and 26ish bottom.
3. I have large wide feet - generally l11W or 12W - and I'm unused to any heel (I'm almost 5'11").
4. I have a tiny budget - $100-150ish. [If I had known sooner that the wedding had been moved up...! Alas.]
Can you help me look fabulous for my best friend's wedding, Outblush? Thank you!"
