Today being Tuesday, the delightful Brynn over at Chartreuse and a Twist is having another Color Collective link up. This week's color(s): white and gold. OK. Fine. I have lots of gold and plenty of white. I pulled together a few favorite items and snapped away. The results were... unfortunate.
The quality of the pictures isn't much worse than usual, and my stuff is nice (shut up, it IS!) but something went wrong somewhere. I can't tell if I'M just depressed or if the pictures are really that awful, but they look to me like something you see on Craig's List, or as evidence at a serial killer's trial. And while I'm not sure I get this whole link-up thing, I'm pretty sure the point isn't to make your readers feel sad and/or creepy.
I will, however, use two extreme close-ups to demonstrate some wardrobe advice, because everyone wants to be told what to wear by someone whose idea of high fashion is anything not from Old Navy, The Gap, or J. Crew, right? Sure. Anyway.
There are two items that everyone should have in their closet. One is a white dress shirt. And not one from Old Navy, The Gap, or even J.Crew. I suggest going to Anne Fontaine:
Her shirts are expensive, but amazing, and really, you only need one. Are you a waiter? No? Then you don't need more than one white blouse. And don't wear it with black pants. Just don't.
The other item is a pair of gold sandals, preferably with a high, wedge heel:
They will make you feel like you are walking on the stars. Mine are Michael Kors, who makes several lovely pairs, but don't limit yourself. The Internet is your friend, at least when it comes to shopping for gold sandals.
There you have it, readers, my white and gold wisdom, such as it is. Let's hope next week's Color Collective is a little more successful.
