The post wherein I ask for fashion advice

Yesterday I cheated and illustrated my post with an image from last Christmas.  Today I don’t think I’m even going to bother with a photo.  It’s not that I didn’t take any.  No,  I took my one Project365 photo that I needed to, but it’s still on the camera, and I am on the couch under a comfy quilt.  I’m not getting up.

I’ve got a vendor event tomorrow that I need to prepare for, and I expect to be spending much of my day tomorrow setting up my wares in the dining room and planning my display.  But tonight I’m thinking more about what to wear when I’m selling.  I actually made a skirt today for that purpose, but I’m not really happy with it.  Actually, I can’t decide if it’s the skirt itself that I don’t like, or the fact that I haven’t found the right shirt to wear with it yet.  I suspect it’s the latter.

What would you wear with a very long, gray Irish linen skirt?  I’ve got black tights and black maryjanes for my feet.  I was thinking some layered tees would do the trick, but I didn’t like the ones I tried on (long-sleeved white with roomy short-sleeved black on top). I may just need to find the right layered tees.  I don’t want to have to buy anything new, and I probably lack the time to make something, but I don’t know… any suggestions?

  1. I wear layered t-shirts almost every day… maybe you can keep trying different combos? Good luck at your event!

    PS- That’s me who “friended” you on facebook (I was checking out where your event is). =)

  2. When in doubt something black will do. You could even layer a grey shirt under a black.

  3. Why wouldn’t that green sweater you bought work?

  4. i love the layered look too. i am thinking though….could you wear one of your cute scrappy scarfs as an accent? maybe not tight, but looser and such.
    maybe even something with a little color punch. even if it is underneath or a neclace or something.
    good luck
    oh, they will be looking at the good books really…heads down and thumbing through it all. they’ll see you cute shoes. 🙂

  5. Let’s see… How about some really bright tights, like the purple ones here:

    If not bright tights, how about some color up top, or a print, like this:

    Okay, I have no idea what I’m talking about. I am not on the fashion police force. But have fun!
    And best wishes!

  6. I think you should wear the outfit that you got the other day. Nice black pants and a cool green shirt.

  7. Thanks, everybody! It turns out the skirt I made looked awful with *everything* I tried. Think it’s the skirt’s fault – I’m going to re-work it into some other style.

    I found a short black casual dress in my closet and paired it with a long-sleeved black tee, black tights, and black maryjanes. And my new charcoal gray sweater. I relied on my jewelry to perk things up a bit, which makes some sense considering it’s the jewelry I was trying to sell 🙂
