It takes a village

Do you ever put together an outfit, look in the mirror and think,
"Hmmm...is this daring and fabulous? or horrific fail?"
That was me on Saturday.
Luckily, my friends are quite used to my madness...so, to the mirror I went.
Wet hair, no make-up and all.
Click.
Send: 'Yes? or No?'
Photobucket 
Having friends in several time zones across the country makes it convenient to text pics at all times of day. I love taking my friends 'shopping' with me via fitting room outfit 'should I buy this' photos.
This time, both friends agreed-
'no'
Photobucket 
This top is actually super cute usually. See? (two summers ago- maybe the blonde hair is better? or the 10 fewer pounds?) PS- This is my BFF, Shopgal!

Back to the drawing board.
Hair now dried and up in hot rollers- I have no shame.
Click.
Send: 'better?'
Photobucket 
Before the responses came in, I decided to ditch the belt.
Wasn't feeling it.
Took the rollers out first.
Click.
Send: 'better without the belt?'
Photobucket
Response: 'no. needs belt.'

Belt back on.
Fluffed and accessorized hair.
Shoes on.
Click.
Send: 'Final Decision'
Photobucket 
Response: 'Done'

Sometimes it takes a village.

I love how you showed us that adding a few touches can make an outfit really special. You look great! I'd love if you came and linked this up at my Drab to Fab party on Friday. We celebrate turning normal clothes into fabulous outfits by using a little creativity or smarts to dress them up. (We also celebrate jazzed up recipes and DIY's). Anyway, I'd love to see you this Friday. Here's a link for all the info you need on the party!
