introducing the first fashion success!

Some of my dear readers (hi Plum!) have been asking me, if possible, to "also" snap pictures of fashionable people every so often, you know, to balance out all those fashion disasters in here...

Well, before I go any further, let me make one thing clear: fashion disaster posts are here to stay! I ENJOY them!

But I figure I will try to show you my softer side, and prove to you that I am capable of being nice and paying a well deserved compliment when needed. ;)

Take this lady, for example.

I have to admit I have a soft spot for redheads. And when I find a redhead that knows the colors that match her hair and her complexion (like in this case), I just love it!

With that said, she didn't pass just the "right colors for you" test.

She also passed the "how to wear a real bright piece" test!

She realized that her top was "very colorful" and so she made the very wise choice of keeping the rest of her outfit neutral, all of it matching in color.

One more positive mark: notice how the stripes are vertical (flattering) and not horizontal (fattening)? Good call, very good call.

Thanks for the fashion success :-)

I like it too! I think her bag works well also - the "horizontal-ness" of it balances out her vertical stripes.

Yes, seems she gave this outfit some thought.

Though I will always hold a special place in my heart for Fashion Disaster, I'm looking forward to these as well.
Yes, she does have it all pulled together; like it or not.
