i’ve been trying to find ways to beat the winter work style blahs. so i’ve turned to my magazines as a first step. but quickly realized it’s all about pretty spring things (clothing and models).
getting the jump on wearing spring fashions now wasn’t really working for me. it’s still too damn cold out for me to think of wear florals and cute dresses. *frown*
next i decided to check out some celeb fashions. although the focus was red carpet looks and causal weekend wear – not that helpful when thinking about budget friendly office attire – i did find this a good starting point for ideas about color combinations and pairings.
i took a cue from zoe saldana in michael kors:
to create my own grey-on-grey look:
2006: top – jacob/2007: grey heels – stuart weitzman (gift)/2011: snake print belt + cropped pants – gap
discovery: i also discovered that the celeb looks i really liked were by designers michael kors, calvin klein, and anne taylor. they do classic, tailored pieces that are evening and work appropriate. so now when thinking about buying better quality pieces for my work wardrobe i will keep these designers in mind.
