Several weeks ago, my spring 10x10 challenge was officially over, but I decided to take the final week of April to re-do some of the outfit fails, to see if I could get them that much closer to perfect. There were two outfits, with olive as the main color, that just weren't quite right and today, we'll see if the redux managed to save one of them...
Spring 10x10 Capsule Wardrobe Challenge: The Olive Redux
As a gamine, I look best when I am wearing a fitted base.
On top of that base, there can be a little flow, especially in the service of creating a combination of opposites, which is quintessentially gamine. But you have to be careful not to drown in too much fabric or be overwhelmed by too much flow.
In my first attempt at creating my daily uniform with my rust-colored duster, an olive top and olive leggings, I think I overdid the flowy look and feel of it. So, I tried a second attempt, hoping to create straighter lines, more gamine elements and less flow.
Did it work?
Well, I definitely like the second look better. And not just because I'm not wearing my slippers. ;)
I still think this particular combination may not work as well as I'd like. Still possibly a little too much fabric.
But I feel better in it. What do you think?
I may keep wearing it, from time to time, because I love the vibrant color combinations and other gamine elements. But it is not perfect, not by a long shot.
See you next time!
My mission is to help you discover, embrace and celebrate your own beauty and style.
Thanks for dropping by! I'll see you soon.
